View from the Eiffel Tower towards the Arc de Triomphe.

1 to 5 show views from the top level ... 1 shows the Trocadero, 2 shows the Sacré-Coeur Basilica, the highest point in Paris,
3 the Invalides, where Napoleon's tomb is, 4 some expensive apartments and 5 the Seine River looking southwest.

6 is from the bustling Marché Bastille.

7 to 11 show the courtyard and the gardens of the Hôtel de Sully. BTW, hôtel does not actually mean a hotel to stay at, but a private mansion.
Maximilien de Béthune, Duke of Sully, and former Superintendent of Finances to King Henri IV, purchased the hôtel on 23 February 1634 from the King.

12 is the entrance to Place des Vosges from the Hôtel de Sully.
