Paris is divided in 20 sections called arrondissement, each arrondissement has it’s own peculiarities and differences. Below we’ve plotted some of the monuments that are related to each of these arrondissement. Now Paris also has districts, such as Saint Germain, Latin Quarter, Montparnasse and more these districts are again different, for example Latin Quarter is straddled on the 5th and the 6th arrondissement.

While it is true that the single digit arrondissement are closer to the center (since the numbering system goes out like a snail from 1 to 20) it is a common misconception that we have heard whereby the best arrondissements are the ones with a single digit. Why is this wrong, well if for example if you look at the 7th it is a superb area but rather residential, but if you’re looking for a lively neighborhood the 11th and 12th (Bastille area) has much more to see and do.

These are some tips, and throughout the site we’ll try to get you more information on the various monuments and areas around Paris.
