Accommodation in Paris, where to stay
Paris is a very huge city, and unlike other European big cities, its countless attractions are not all in a defined center. The landmarks are located in areas that are often very far from each other! How to figure out where is the best area to look for accommodation then?
To discover the treasures that the city is scattered with, you have to move from neighborhood to neighborhood!
Fortunately, wherever you choose your accommodation, you won’t have to worry about travel, thanks to the public transport network which in Paris is very widespread and efficient.
The best location in Paris
The first thing to keep in mind when choosing your accommodation in Paris is not only the neighborhood but the proximity of a metro station. Choose an accommodation that is at least 300/400 meters away from a station. This way, you will spend less money and you will be close to the main transport network of the city.
There are lines of the Paris metro that are more useful than others. If you take some specific lines, you can easily go to the most famous attractions of the city! That’s something to consider while booking short rents accommodation in Paris.
