    So many things to do and see in this street, reflecting the soft life Parisienne. Prices are not excessive for most merchants, the street being enough preserved for tourists at the moment. The small plot of the counterscarp allows to eat a break ;)

    Ah La Mouffe this small street atypical. It is undoubtedly my favorite Paris Street. She is beautiful during the Christmas with all the illuminations period. Do not miss during your visit to the capital.

    Well worth a visit and it's a lovely walk. Don't just look, buy something to support local business people or eat in one of the many cafes, restaurants for food stalls. Beautiful fruit and vegetables,...  more »

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
