  • many people, it's the holiday period, a well-oiled machine, own many shops you find everything (coffee, fast food, key minute, Shoemaker, super market, clothing, watches, sunglasses...) thanks for the hostesses of the metro, they take the time to explain the journey).

  • Beautiful station, architecture restored period. We easily forget the train to catch the beauty of the place. A lot of light passes through the canopy, and the Mall is very attractive. Cafes, restaurants, life in Paris inside the station. Well placed to join the Boulevard Haussman, the Opera Garnier, etc... Small flat, I just had a bit of trouble to find the toilet because not well indicated.

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.
