8th Arrondissement, Paris

(4.9/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan your 8th Arrondissement visit and explore what else you can see and do in Paris using our Paris trip generator.

  • One of the most important districts of Paris is absolutely full of monuments. You'll want to come here. But beware that this is a very rich area and is lacking in the charm of other areas.  more »
  • The 8th Arrondissement was an upscale location in Paris. Everything you would need to make a memorable vacation...Just don't stay at Short Stay Apartments at 40 rue Laborde. That was our only mistake....  more »
