paris by arrondissement





Paris is divided into 20 neighborhoods, or arrondissements. Each one has it's own unique feel and features, and I thought it would be interesting to gather some thoughts and favorites of those who have visited. I will be there again in February and hope to spend more time in the lesser known areas. Do you have a favorite, and why? Do you relate more to the left or right bank? Disclaimer-being a Libra, I cannot define myself as either a left or right bank  girl…I love them both equally. ::wink::

  1. I’m a Rive Gauche kind of girl. Love the St. Germain, Rue Cler, Eiffel Tower, Museé d’Orsay areas. Of course I love all of Paris though!

  2. I’ve lived in so many different arrondissements that I’m not sure if I can say I’m a left or right bank kind of gal, but I’m leaning to right. And for exploring, I’m definitely going to go with the right. The 9th, 10th, 11th, and 18th (all the others too obviously but these ones come to mind) have such lovely places to discover. My only suggestion is to get out of the cliché center, there is more to Paris than just the central arrondissements…! You’ve gotta find Paris untouched..!
