    Most of the authentic shops disappeared not rest as shops of clothes without interest or low range of fast food restaurants is rather cold damage that the "market" spirit has disappeared completely

    We arrived between 10 and 10:30 in early October and other than a couple of shops being open there was no market. Maybe it's better on another day or earlier in the season but nothing was happening wh...  more »

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.
