Each of the twenty arrondissements in Paris has its own distinct charm and character.
The 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th (Marais and St Germain) are probably the most talked about, but the more authentic “local” neighbourhoods are found in the 11th, 17th and 18th.
Don’t be afraid to wander off the tourist track and discover an area which is not in the guide book. Everyone will have their own experience and far be it for me to preach about where you should or shouldn’t go.
instead, use the sub-menu to find my top picks in your quartier and then check out the Walking Tour suggestions which will be available soon.
