Paris, France

What we can say about Paris that you don’t already know? One of the most famous cities in the world, Paris attracts people from all over. This iconic city has beautiful cityscapes and parks, legendary restaurants and markets, top fashion designers, and brilliant cafés.

The Right Bank

La Bastille. Marked by the Opéra-Bastille, this area is known for its music and camera storesalong Beaumarchais, with bars, eateries and clubs on rue de la Roquette.
Concorde / Saint-Honoré. Luxury! International fashion labels have shops along rue Saint-Honoré and rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, as well as being populated by banks and offices. The Place de la Concorde is one of the major public squares in Paris and is always busy with tourists.
Les Champs-Élysées. One of the most iconic streets in Paris, playing host to luxury and high-street stores.
Les Halles / Hôtel de Ville. Here there’s a shopping mall with with hip shops, the Centre George Pompidou, Hôtel de Ville (the city hall), and fast food restaurants.
Avenue l’Opéra. Around the Opéra Garnier is one of the largest shopping centres and is also a very important banking centre. There are many Japanese restaurants behind both sides of the avenue de l’Opéra.
Le Marais. A beautiful area with well preserved historical houses and buildings, Le Marais is now a very trendy area with numerous bars and cafés that make up the heart of the gay, Chinese and Jewish communities.
Montmartre. Montmartre is famously a haven for artists and this picturesque hill heaves with tourists. However, the neighbourhood is still able to retain it’s charm as it’s lined with restaurants and cafés and artists hoping to sketch your portrait.
Gare de l’Est / Gare du Nord. In the North of Paris lie the stations and the city’s textile quarter, which always plays home to a large immigrant (largely African) community. The food around here is amazing, and we particularly recommend the always busy and vegetarian Krishna Bhavan on 24 Rue Cail, which has fabulous (and inexpensive) dosa, curries and lassis.

The Left Bank

Latin Quarter. Academic centre with a brilliant atmosphere and countless bistros, casual cafés and drinking holes.
Saint-Germain. An upper-middle class residential part of Paris with galleries, high-end clothing shops and restaurants.
Saint-Michel. The location of the Sorbonne University, the area has bookstores, cinemas (including the Odéon theatre), and cafés.
Invalides / Eiffel Tower. The iconic Eiffel Tower draws millions of visitors every year. The area surrounding it tends to be overpriced.
Montparnasse. Historic area known for artists’ studios, musical halls and more cafés.

The Central Islands

Île de la Cité. Famous for the Notre-Dame, the island is now home to the Prefecture de Police, Palais de Justice, Hôtel-Dieu hospital and the Tribunal de Commerce. Residences are limited to the westernmost and north-eastern parts of the island.
Île Saint-Louis. Beautiful and serene residential area in the heart of the city, unconnected by the metro.

Paris is incredibly well connected by rail, air, car and bus to the rest of the world. The Eurostar runs between Paris and London in less than 2 and a half hours as well as offering connections within France, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland.

To live and work here is a dream for many, and it could be you. It may be an expensive place to live, but that’s what you pay for living in one of the most beautiful cities in the world!
