  • The area of Paris where it's good live, bordered by the bois de Boulogne to the West then the Seine, Le Trocadéro with the most beautiful view of the Eiffel Tower and the Champ De mars. Beautiful buildings and shops of the highest quality.

  • May be because of too many wealthy people live in 16th Arrondissement, other people don't want to disturb their expensive peace. I think may be wealthy people who live in this area don't know how to e...  more »
  • A large area of Paris, which is highly sought after. A large movement of tourists, with many restaurants and important places. The Trocadero, part of the Arc de Triomphe, the Cimitière de Passy and the famous Bois de Boulogne and the Parc de Bagatelle where Dumont first flew with the 14A.

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.
