Paris is divided into 20 arrondissements (aka. districts or sectors). You can find detailed opinion pieces all over the web about where’s the best place to live or stay or visit or whatever. Instead, here’s a quick look at what each arrondissement has to offer. Rather than bombard you with paragraphs of prose, we’ve distilled the info into the most important bullet points.
