Opera district contains many places of cultural, historical, and architectural interest, including the Palais Garnier, home to the Paris Opera, and its large department stores--Galeries Lafayette and Printemps. Famed for its large avenues, built by the Baron Haussmann under Napoleon III, the district once reigned as a residential hub. Now, however, it's a center for businesses, featuring many well-known banks, restaurants, hotels, and cafes. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Paris holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Opera district and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

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.
