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.

  • Curated with deep love and respect for the Jewish experience in France, this museum is a must-see, ideally visited when you can take your time and attempt to take in a small percentage of all there is...  more »
  • Just in the middle of the street we found this memorial.Take a few minutes to reflect, hoe evil could be found even in this beautiful city.  more »
  • Was not expecting such an outstanding memorial. Largest holocaust memorial in Europe. Took us over 4 hours and still did not finish. Well worth the trip just to see the tribute to the children.  more »

  • Meticulously archived documents and images that are immersive and insightful. A beautiful and touching museum, not to be missed.
  • Amazing place, free entrance! Must see if you have interest in the Jewish religion / holocaust / ww2!!
  • So powerful and well done. The stories of Jewish struggle and persecution are overwhelming. Don't miss it.
  • It is disappointed to see that in 2017 in Europe you have to put armed soldiers to protect the Jewish community, the synagogues and memorials, so sad !
  • Very moving pedagogical about the Shoah very interesting conferences
