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.

  • Great museum for photography. Changing exhibitions so check the website to see what's on display.
  • The best art photography exhibition center in France! By far...
  • Very nice exhibitions. Worth the money if you are interested in contemporary video and photography art.
  • Excellent place dedicated to the photography. No permanent collection to visit but always very good temporary exhibitions (contemporary and/or older photographers)
  • Great museum and just the right size. Frequently not too busy and you can easily see everything there without feeling overwhelmed. Not to mention its great location in the park.
