    I had this street address when it was near Paris in the "Latin Quarter" seemed curious to visit this street that looks like a corridor between another Street. Nearby there are restaurants. Visit at night and is quite illuminated.

    One night returning from dinner at my hotel I found an alley that shortened way, then I hear was the narrowest of Paris Street, though I think having seen another narrow very closely, but closed to the public.

    You now check trip Advisor always finding the attraction before going on a trip recently, and local. But this place is so not out to guide the staff Advisor, here was subtle. Try to express only the narrow alleys and the. Personal preference is different now.

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.
