8th Arrondissement, Paris

4.8
Take in quintessential Paris at 8th Arrondissement, home to the Champs-Elysees and Arc de Triomphe, and packed with high-end shops, restaurants, and hotels. Stroll the tree-lined Champs-Elysees, one of the country's best-known roads, and you'll pass a riotous array of cafes and souvenir shops and eventually arrive at the massive traffic circle around the Arc de Triomphe. Experience the swirling masses of cars and people here, a side effect of the district's position in Paris' business nexus, and view the 50 m (164 ft) arch. Also part of the neighborhood, Place de la Concorde represents the city's biggest square replete with embassies, fountains, and other ornate buildings. Don't miss the "golden triangle," one of Paris' most popular shopping areas full of boutique stores.

  • The neighborhood that concentrates the top of luxury in Paris. With its designer shopping. The Avenue des Champs Elysées, the place de la Concorde, the Madeleine Church, embassies, the headquarters of the International Automobile Federation, among other attractions.

  • 8 ° arrondissement is bordered to the South by the Seine River, West by Marceau and Wagram avenues and on the North by the boulevard of Courcelles. The avenue of the Champs Elysees is emblematic but she is far from the most beautiful avenue in the world especially now because many work in its upper part. The majestic harmony to the imposing Arc de Triomphe, car pollution is pervasive. It is also headquarters of the prestigious hotels and luxury boutiques.

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.
