A nice introduction to Paris

PARIS ARRONDISSEMENTS AND PARIS NEIGHBORHOODS

What does “arrondissement” mean?

The Arrondissements of Paris are administrative divisions. Paris is divided into 20 Paris Arrondissements (or Paris districts). In each district of Paris, there is a town hall (Mairie) and a mayor (Maire), as well as elected officials, a council, a politician and so on. Of course, the 20 arrondissements of Paris are still subject to the overall policy of the city and the mayor of Paris, the socialist Anne Hidalgo.

The Arrondissements of Paris are not to be confused with the Parisian Quartiers (Paris Neighborhoods). Parisian Quartiers, like Belleville, Saint-Germain-des-Près and many more, are historic neighborhoods while the arrondissements of Paris exist only since the XVIIIth century. An arrondissement usually includes many Paris Neighborhoods within its boundaries.

To find your bearings in Paris there is a little trick: the 1st arrondissement of Paris is in the center of the city, then the other Paris arrondissements are located forming a spiral turning clockwise, to finish in the 20th arrondissement in the east.

THE ARRONDISSEMENTS IN PARIS (OUR DEDICATED POSTS)

Choosing the best Arrondissement to stay in Paris is a difficult decision. More than simple divisions, the 20 arrondissements of Paris have their own character and charm. They all tell locals and visitors alike different stories about Paris. On our Paris Arrondissement Guide, we try to give a good breakdown to all the Paris districts and tell about their essence.

If you want to know more about a specific arrondissement, check our Paris by Arrondissement posts here below. On these posts, we give a deep insight into each district and our best tips to explore Paris like a local. We started this series of posts in April 2017 so it will take us some time to reach Paris 20 but we will make it!

PARIS 1 (LOUVRE)

Prices: € € € | Paris Points of Interest: 🙂 🙂 🙂 | Paris Like a Local: 🙁

The 1st Arrondissement of Paris is one of the must-see arrondissements in Paris. If this is your first time in Paris you won’t want to miss Paris 1 because many Paris monuments and sights are located in this district. This is the district of the Kings of France, with the Royal Palace, Tuileries Gardens, the Louvre or La Cité Palace. There is no need to say that this is one of the most sumptuous Arrondissements in Paris and also one of the most expensive arrondissements to stay. On the other hand, Paris 1 is also the district of Les Halles. This neighborhood, historically known as “the belly of Paris” because of its huge central market, is less fancy than the Louvre neighborhood but you have more chances to find some local life (and better prices) here.

Come to Paris 1 for its monuments, elegant squares and to enjoy the Seine’s banks.

Paris 2 Like a Local

The 2nd Arrondissement of Paris is organized around the old Stock Market of Paris, with many banks and beautiful shops. Paris 2  is the smallest district of Paris, with a strong commercial character. It also homes the textile industry so come here if you need some nice fabrics. There are not many top sights in Paris 2 but it has beautiful architecture, Grands Boulevards, and foodies will be very happy to walk along Rue Montorgueil, one of the best food streets in Paris. The most beautiful sights to visit in Paris 2 are the Covered Passages. Most of the Covered Passages in Paris are located in this district.

Come to Paris 2 for its shopping, restaurants, bars, and cinemas.

PARIS 3 (TEMPLE)

Prices: € € € | Paris Points of Interest: 🙂 | Paris Like a Local: 🙂

Half of famous Le Marais (which is neither an Arrondissement nor a District by the way) is located in the 3rd Arrondissement of Paris. Paris 3 is a lively and trendy district, with many faces. You will find lots of fancy art galleries close to Beaubourg (which is in Paris 4) while its winding old streets are full of vintage shops and beautiful hôtels particuliers (rich private houses), some of them turned into nice museums (ie. Picasso Museum). Paris 3 is also home to the first Chinese community in Paris so it is a good opportunity to find cheap and authentic (Asian) food on their streets.

Come to Paris 3 for its beautiful cafes, vintage shops, hôtels particuliers, and art galleries.

PARIS 4 (HÔTEL DE VILLE)

Prices: € € € | Paris Points of Interest: 🙂 🙂 🙂 | Paris Like a Local: 🙂 🙂

The 4th Arrondissement of Paris you can find the other half of Le Marais but it is also the district of Ile de la Cité, Ile de Saint Louis, and Hôtel de Ville. There are plenty of things to do in Paris 4 for locals and tourists alike. For this reason and because this is one of the most beautiful Paris districts, the 4th arrondissement is our favorite one. Some of the top tourist attractions in Paris like Notre Dame, the Sainte Chapelle or Centre Georges Pompidou are located in Paris 4 but this is also a district for nice walks. Paris 4, and to be more specific the streets around Hôtel de Ville, is also the gay district in Paris since the 90’s. If you are looking for gay bars in Paris or gay parties in Paris you will see many rainbow flags in this area.

Come to Paris 4 for lots of history, shopping, nice walks and to enjoy (again) the banks of the Seine.

things to do in paris 5th arrondissement

The 5th Arrondissement of Paris is where the Romans settled for the first time, founding the city of Lutetia. This is a district world known for its history and culture, with sights like the Panthéon, the Roman Arenas (Les Arènes de Lutèce) or Cluny Museum. The oldest district of Paris, also called Latin Quarter, is also the district of students because many historical universities like la Sorbonne were founded in this area during the XIIth century. We like Paris 5, especially for its student atmosphere and for its lively atmosphere, especially around Rue de Mouffetard and Place de la Contrescarpe.

Come to Paris 5 for its Roman remains, lots of history and students life.

PARIS 9 (OPÉRA)

From Pigalle neighborhood to Opéra Garnier, this is a trendy district where things have not changed much during the last 30 years. A lively district with its old cafes, offices and Haussmannian architecture and where we still can find a true neighborhood life. Paris 9’s location, close to the Grands Boulevards and Montmartre, is perfect to visit easily Paris’ main sights and for a little bit of nightlife.

Come to Paris 9 for its life, with lots of things to see & do.

Paris by Arrondissement - Paris 10

Paris 10 is one of the trendiest districts in Paris, eternally linked to Canal Saint-Martin and its banks. This is a district of bobos (bohemian-bourgeois people), with nice cafes and vintage shops, hurt forever by Amélie Poulain film. BUT this is also the district of two big train stations: Gare du Nord and Gare de l’Est, with an always busy and popular atmosphere around. Some bars at rue de Faubourg Saint-Denis are very cool.

Come to Paris 10 to wander, vintage shopping and night picnics along the canal’s banks.

Paris 12 is one of the Paris residential areas. Also, it has the honor to be the greenest district of Paris, home of Parc Floral, Bois de Vincennes, and Parc de Bercy. This is a very sleepy district but still, sights like La Coulée Verte or a glass of wine in good company at Bercy Village are worth the visit.

PARIS 13

Prices: €  | Paris Points of Interest: 🙂 | Paris Like a Local: 🙂 🙂 🙂

We like Paris 13! A kind of no man’s land with a very popular character and a strong Chinese population, this district of Paris has some cool things to see and do like the arty Butte-Aux-Cailles neighborhood or its incredible Mural Program. Paris 13 Mural Program has attired the most renowned Street Artists in the world and it is giving some color to this district of Paris. If you are a curious visitor, we would give it a chance.

Come to Paris 13 for some great Paris Street Art and the Chinese’s New Year Parade.

PARIS 14

Too calm and strange. However, Paris 14 has the honor to host Parc Montsouris, one of the most beautiful parks in Paris, and the Catacombs of Paris. In Paris 14 we like the Cité Universitaire de Paris, with its architecture from the 4 corners of the world and its student atmosphere.

You will probably want to come to Paris 14 to see the Paris Catacombs.

PARIS 15

Ouff! This is another Paris residential area where we are always lazy to go. Paris 15 is the most populated district in the city, it is as if everybody wanted to live in this arrondissement. Definitely a family district, too calm, with no special character, and too far from everything.

PARIS 16

This is an upscale residential district, it is where the rich people in Paris live. Some of the most luxurious hotels in Paris, like the Peninsula Hotel, or Hotel Raphael are located in this district and their fancy rooftop bars are a cool place to enjoy fantastic views of Paris with your favorite drink. Apart from this, the population is slightly older than in other arrondissements and it always looks very empty. Really empty and far away. The trees of Paris 16 are nice though.

Come to Paris 16 to see the beautiful Art Nouveau Architecture. Most of Guimet’s works are in Paris 16.

PARIS 17 (BATIGNOLLES-MONCEAU)

This district is formed by 3 very different Neighborhoods: merchant Quartier de Ternes, bourgeois Quartier Monceau, and arty Quartier de Batignolles. What can we say about Paris 17? We were living there many moons ago, but it was so boring that we escaped after three months…

Come to see Parc Monceau

PARIS 18 (MONTMARTRE)

Prices: € € | Paris Points of Interest: 🙂 🙂 | Paris Like a Local: 🙂 🙂
 

This is the most paradoxical of the 20 arrondissements of Paris. It is home to Quartier Montmartre, the quintessential Neighborhood in Paris, but there are also popular zones longtime forgotten by everybody. Montmartre with its winding cobbled streets is here, yes, but also Little India, Africa, and the infamous Goute d’Or Neighborhood. If you want to stay in Paris 18 for its bohemian, oh so Parisian atmosphere, be sure your hotel is located close to Pigalle or Blanche metro stations.

Come to see bohemian Montmartre, le Sacré Coeur, and Moulin Rouge Cabaret.

Paris by Arrondissement - Paris 19

World in Paris’ headquarter is located in Paris 19 and we love it! Paris 19 was a former industrial area developed along Canal de l’Ourq. Today it is a very popular district with a strong quota of immigration but with a very Parisian soul at the same time. Paris 19 is home to wonderful Parc Buttes-Chaumont and Parc de la Villette. We just love to spend time in the park, always full of life and different activities. And we also love to hang out at Canal de la Villette for our favorite drinks and some people watching.

Come to Paris 19 if you want to discover Paris off the beaten path.

PARIS 20

A few years ago, this was the cheapest district in Paris so many young Parisian couples with fewer resources came here to live. Today, Paris 20 is one of the trendiest and more authentic districts of Paris and all this without tourists! Best known for being home to Père Lachaise Cemetery, there are not many other tourist sights in Paris 20. However, it has cool cafes to hang out with friends, some Street Art and Parc de Belleville offers some of the best views of the City of Light.

PARIS DISTRICTS F.A.Q.

 

What is the best arrondissement to stay in Paris?

It depends on what you are looking for. Have lots of money and want to be close to everything? Then choose Paris 1 or Paris 2. Looking for some cool local life, far from the crowds? Paris 20 might suit you very well. Looking for the party? Stay in Paris 11 . . .

What is the best area to stay in Paris for sightseeing?

The best area to stay in Paris for sightseeing, in our opinion, it is Paris 1 and Paris 4.

What is the best place to stay in Paris close to everything?

The best place to stay in Paris close to everything is without any doubt, central Paris Arrondissements: Paris 1, Paris 4, Paris 5 and Paris 6.

Are there no-go zones in Paris?

In general, there are no Arrondissements in Paris to avoid but we have our little list of places that might be best avoided, like the Eiffel Tower on a Saturday afternoon in summer, Chatelet Metro Station (we always get lost there!) or metro at rush hour 😉

What if we are looking for non-touristy things to do in Paris?

You are in the right place! Check our posts by arrondissement where we tell you where to sleep, eat and play like a local in Paris.

    Wasn’t actually aware that there was a distinction between arrondissements and quartiers, so thankyou for that clarification. Was very useful to have this easy to reference guide with tourist points of interest and degree of exploring like a local. It sounds like the 5th Arrondissement has a pretty good balance of tourist attractions, history and culture, while still being a hub of local life.

And such great timing – I think we are going to have an extended Paris layover in a few weeks so we’ll have to bookmark this as our guide on where to spend our time. Although I don’t think we’ll be able to afford to check out Paris 8… lol. Paris 20 sounds pretty perfect for us for a few nights stay. Thanks so much for your in-depth research and detailed writing!

    I was wondering what an arrondissement was when I started this post. It’s interesting that there are so many districts in so small an area, and that each has a town hall. We had a rushed visit the last time we went and got to see all the main tourist attractions, but not really get a feel of the local life. The 13th district interests me for the street art.

    I love hearing local opinions on Paris. I have been to Paris so often, I sometimes feel like a local (we live 2.5hrs by train south of Paris). I have always loved the 5th, as my father lived there when he was young. but also love further out, the 20th etc, as you can find some fab places to stay and less tourists if you go that little bit further beyond the tourists! This is a great run-down of the arrondissements – merci!

    I’m glad you explained Arrondissements definition somewhat near the top. I was confused for a bit and felt a bit silly for not knowing that word. Ha I love that only three of them have Paris like a local 3/3. Haha It makes sense that they’re the ones with less to see. I’m curious, how did Amelie hurt Boboland?

    • WorldInParis
      11/18/2017 at 10:19 pm

      Because Amélie attired the crowds to that district of Paris and now there are Amélie tours, etc which spoil the atmosphere a little bit. It happened the same with Da Vinci Code and Paris Saint Sulpice /Louvre Museums. Actually the people responsible of these two places hate Dan Brown a lot, lol

    This is such a great information you have compiled for a first-time visitor to Paris. People normally write about tourist attractions and forget that cities are living places and organized for those who live here. I am yet to visit Paris, but I am now keen to check out Paris 20.

    This is so fascinating…I never quite saw Paris as a collection of arrondissements, but for a traveler it makes so much sense to know about it and plan. But as you said, each district has it’s own charm and it would be so tough to pick one…it does make sense to start with Paris 1 though 🙂
