It’s been 10 years since I moved to Paris from where I was born and raised near Versailles, and in all that time in this dynamic and cosmopolitan city, I’ve never been bored. When selecting where to stay in Paris there are so many enticing options, all with something special to offer.
It helps a great deal that the city is so incredibly easy to traverse, being as it is so wonderfully walkable with a simple, user-friendly metro system as well as readily available (and trustworthy) taxis and a paid bike system. All of Paris and the little suburbs within it have a special charm to them, so selecting a home base really comes down to budget and particular taste.
I’ve distilled all my favorite areas into this comprehensive Paris neighborhoods guide in which I detail all the very best areas to stay in Paris and what visitors can expect from them.
