Paris is one of the world’s most fascinating cities with iconic monuments, picturesque views, charming neighborhoods, and gastronomic spoils. Paris is so jam-packed with culture that visitors often recount the city as a living museum.
While touristy experiences in Paris are pleasing in their own right (see: a stroll along the Seine or a trip via riverboat), we prefer to float around the city’s delightful neighborhoods more methodically. Because when you get to know Paris’ arrondissements, which you can think of as individual neighborhoods with distinctive vibes, you’ll understand Paris for its more distinguished ethos.
But traversing through the City of Light can be overwhelming, even for experienced travelers. With Insider’s guide, you’ll leave Paris with a well-developed sense of what the city and its people have to offer beyond the average first-time experience.
