  • I don't know what I like more, the splendid architecture of this very old arch (with its important history), or the vibrant aspect of this dynamic Paris neighborhood, full of diverse people scurrying ...  more »
  • strange place for an arch, seems like its in the wrong part of paris! interesting area around though with not many tourists  more »
  • The St Denis gate is impressive but it is unfortunately in a dirty area, polluted and very evil attended. The architecture remains magnificent. A see through the day.

  • This is one of the great things about Europe. There are all kinds of neat historical landmarks hanging out right in the middle of intersections. I found this one on accident, but it's pretty neat.
  • Gate to the former city walls, now to the red light / fashion district
  • Beautiful monument!! And special area which looks like red light district!!
  • Monument, part of the old wall, and one of the "arch de triomps" look alike, just smaller
  • Nice squar and nice places to sit in the area.

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.
