Districts of Paris

Municipal division of Paris

Paris is divided into twenty administrative districts that are referred to as arrondissements and are numbered from 1 to 20. The numbering starts at the very center of the city and follows an imaginary clockwise spiral. Six out of twenty arrondissements (5th, 6th, 7th, 13th, 14th, and 15th) are located on the Left (southern) bank of the Seine, and the rest, including both Seine islands (Île de la Cité, Île Saint-Louis), belong to the Right (north) bank.

Louvre, the 1st arrondissement of Paris, encompasses some of Paris's most renowned attractions like, you guessed it, the Louvre and the Tuileries Gardens. It is one of the smallest and least populated districts of Paris, but the most visited.

Bourse, the 2nd arrondissement, is a dense business district, which comes as no surprise considering that "bourse" means "wallet" in French.

Temple, the 3rd arrondissement, is the second smallest district of Paris after the 1st arrondissement. It's a quieter part of Parisian center and is popular among tourists.

Hôtel-de-Ville, the 4th arrondissement, contains all the major attractions of Paris, including the Île Saint-Louis, the eastern parts of the Île de la Cité on which stands the iconic Notre-Dame de Paris, the Pompidou Centre for modern art, and many others.

Panthéon, the 5th arrondissement (Left bank), is an academic district of Paris with high concentration of universities and colleges. It also hosts the famous Latin Quarter, which was a historical place for students and artists to live and work in.

Luxembourg, the 6th arrondissement (Left bank), is visited by tourists who make their way into the Jardin de Luxembourg, laid out around the Luxembourg Palace. The famous existentialist district of Saint-Germain-des-Prés is also here.

Palais-Bourbon, the 7th arrondissement (Left bank), is where you probably will be headed the day you wake up in Paris, as this is where the Eiffel Tower can be found, along with the Hôtel des Invalides, where Napoleon Bonaparte is buried.

Élysée, the 8th arrondissement, shares the title of the main business artery of Paris with the 2nd and 9th districts. The points of interest include the Place de la Concorde, the Arc de Triomphe and of course the sumptuous Champs-Élysées.

Opéra, the 9th arrondissement, is most known for the grand Paris Opéra which is located there, but music lovers will also appreciate an opportunity to visit Folies Bergère, an iconic Parisian music hall. Shopping is also quite good in the district: world-famous department stores “Printemps” and “Galeries Lafayette” are to be found in the 9th arrondissement.

Enclos-St-Laurent, the 10th arrondissement, is famous for the Saint Marten canal running through it, a popular attraction surrounded by numerous restaurants. Enclos-St-Laurent also contains two Parisian railway stations (the Gare du Nord and the Gare de l'Est). If you are arriving from the United Kingdom, Germany or Netherlands, chances are you will start your visit to Paris in the 10th arrondissement.

Popincourt, the 11th arrondissement, is a vibrant urban district that combines quiet residential areas with popular nightlife strips, galleries, boutiques and restaurants. Landmark places of interest include the Place de la République and the Place de la Bastille.

Reuilly, the 12th arrondissement, is home to the second largest opera house in Paris, the Opéra de la Bastille. It is a mostly residential district in which good quality apartments can be rented.

Gobelins, the 13th arrondissement (Left bank), is a residential and immigrant district with the main Parisian Chinatown located here.

Observatoire, the 14th arrondissement (Left bank), is home to most of the artsy Montparnasse area. The district also shares the custody of the skyscraper Tour Montparnasse (the Montparnasse Tower) with Vaugirard, the 15th arrondissement, the most populous district of Paris.

Passy, the 16th arrondissement, is mostly residential, but with some serious number of museums and sporting venues, most notably the Parc de Princes football stadium and the Roland Garros Stadium where the French Open tennis championships take place.

Batignolles-Monceau, the 17th arrondissement, is notable for the Place de Clichy, vividly described by Henry Miller in the novel “Quiet Days in Clichy”. It is a diverse and animated neighbourhood, and there is more to it than just red-light district attributes.

Butte-Montmartre, the 18th arrondissement, is where the famous boulevard de Montmartre is located, along with the Sacré Coeur basilica, the legendary music hall Moulin Rouge and a fictional cafe in which Amélie from the film by Jean-Pierre Jeunet worked as a waitress.

Buttes-Chaumont, the 19th arrondissement, is a growing residential neighbourhood with large numbers of immigrants settling here. There is a beautiful Parc de Buttes-Chaumont that gives this district its name.

Ménilmontant, the 20th arrondissement, is perhaps most known for the Père Lachaise cemetery located at its core. Many famous figures are buried at the Père Lachaise, most notably Oscar Wilde, Molière, Frédéric Chopin, and Jim Morrison. The cemetery is a favourite place of pilgrimage for gothic youth and The Doors fans.

You can find apartments in Paris in any district, close to points of interest, metro stops, parks.

Montmartre

The hill on the northern side of Paris with the Sacré Coeur basilica at the top. There used to be a village, which annexed into Paris only in 1860. In many wars the elevated point of the Montmartre hill was considered advantageous, and the offending side usually tried to occupy it at all costs. In the beginning of the 20th century Montmartre became wildly fashionable among bohemian public. Émile Zola, Hector Berlioz, Renoir, Degas, Van Gogh and many others lived in Montmartre.

Marais Quarter

This is one of the oldest neighbourhoods of Paris on the right bank of Seine, barely touched by the Haussmann's urban project, where the Medieval character is still evident. Marshes that were being drained even during the times of the Knights Templar, became popular among aristocracy during the reign of Henry IV. Both old wooden houses and neat mansions can be seen in the Marais.

Saint-Germain-des-Prés

Saint-Germain-des-Prés is the quarter in Paris, where the 11th century Benedictine monastery once stood. Only a church remained, now rebuilt and significantly altered in appearance. During the First Republic the monastery was demolished, and a square near the church was used as an execution spot for all of the Benedictine monks. Thanks to the surviving nave the church has the status of the oldest church structure in Paris; there lies the famous mathematician René Descartes.
