  • Run, run, run... through the streets, the connecting streets meander, dine at little bistros or browse cafes, on a small flea market for a souvenir, which study the facades of the old houses, encountering ancient craft in backyards... What a magnificent experience.! Here you can breathe the real Paris, in which the Paris run. And here you will find authentic restaurants with alternate, cheaper offers. Even so, experience Paris!

  • A part of the city that tourists can integrate more day to day of the local people. A very good place to go is the Parc de Bercy and Bercy Village where there are many restaurants. A meeting point and fun.

  • Best feature of the twelfth is the Promenade Plantee...plus the Viaduct des Arts underneath. And then there's Bercy Park. Not a tourist area, but this is where Parisians live. Lots of parks.  more »

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
