    On Sundays it presents a great life. You will find cafes, open stores (e.g. Louis Vuiton and time libraries including Lps, cd, etc), cafes and restaurants of all kinds, including a carrefour express and shop bicadillos ham (near the monument to Danton). Ideal for a typical Parisian stroll with your partner.

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.
