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.

  • This is a unique chapel, in the shape and the presence of an oculus in the dome. It originally was connected to a convent. Now it is a protestant church. The building is beautiful and there are some silk hangings made by a parishoner decorating the interior.
  • A beautiful and historic church in the Marais district.
  • A landmark of pastors homophobic. Of the "attestants" or hatred and rejection pegs in the heart. Avoid absolutely. There are other temples where hear great sermons!

  • We arrived by chance in this small church is evangelical. Inside, we were greeted in French. We specialize in English given as tourists. An elderly lady asked us in English, where we were going. "From Germany." "Ah, German." Then we got a little lecture on the history of the Church from her in very good German. It then but very positively surprised us. We had unfortunately no time to come to church the next day, be diligent about during our next visit very much like it. Merci Madame
