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.

  • Having heard this was the great resistance museum I am either disappointed, or the French didn't put up much resistance! Disappointing. Seems like the Dutch at least opposed the Nazi regime (the Amste...  more »

  • Surprisingly interesting. I did not really know what to expect from this small museum, which is still relatively unknown. But entry is free, so I thought, hey, why not. And even though it's not very large at all, I stayed for a full hour, and I could have stayed even longer had I watched all the historical movies. That being said, the museum is full of interesting historical documents (newspapers, photographs, and other WW2 artifacts) displayed in a chronological order following Leclerc's progression from Cameroon to Indochina. Upstairs is another room in which they play a short documentary about the Liberation of Paris (also very interesting). And the other side of the building is a wing dedicated to Jean Moulin and the French Resistance. Anyway, I recommend the visit to all history and WW2 fans. And it's free, so it'll always be worth it.
  • It's free and you get to learn some interesting stories about the war in France
  • Very hard to find even with Google directions, but once there, a great museum, very detailed and documented.
  • Old is best and first
  • Good Museum. It's not a big Museum but worth when the same visit. The garden next door is very nice to walk around a bit. However I did not pass in the Museum (Auchweiz) during the German occupation to join the southern area.
