Arrondissement 1 attractions, and accommodations
What I like about the arrondissement 1 of Paris is that it is rich in history, landmarks, and attractions of the city. The first arrondissement confines with arrondissements 4, 8 and 7.
The arrondissement 1 includes part of the Ile de la Cité. It is one of the islands of the city from where you can cross historical architectures of the city: bridges.
In the arrondissement 1, you can walk in green areas such as the Tuileries garden (Jardin de Tuileries). It is huge and you can admire lots of sculptures. If you want, you can visit lots of gardens in the first arrondissement. Jardin du Carrousel, Jardin des Halles, Jardin de l’oratoire, Jardin du Palais Royal, Jardin de l’Infante, Square du Vert Galant…
Arrondissement 1 attractions
Arrondissement 1 is perfect if you like visiting museums and see architectures. If so, you must visit the Louvre museum, between the Seine and the beautiful rue de Rivoli. It is the third most visited museum in the world!
Another attraction of the first arrondissement of Paris is Palais-Royal, where you can find out a lot about France’s history and Paris history. In the same arrondissement, you can visit Bourse du Commerce et de l’Industrie and la Banque de France.
If you are charmed by churches, you have to know that this arrondissement includes the Notre-Dame de l’Assomption and the Sainte-Chapelle ones!

Accommodations in Arrondissement 1
Here a bunch of selected accommodations in Arrondissement 1. As you will see, this area of the city is one of the most central. It will be super-easy visiting the most important attractions and going to the most “Parisians” area of the city.
You can book luxury accommodation in the very heart of Paris, as this suite near the Louvre. Even if it is a one-room apartment, it can accommodate up to 6 people!
If you would like a colourful accommodation that can accommodate up to 7 people, take a look at the short term rentals apartment near the Louvre. You will be able to just walk to the most famous places in this area!
A comfortable alternative is choosing a modern apartment close to this arrondissement and to arrondissement 2. It has all you need to experience Paris like a local!
The perfect place for privacy lovers who don’t want to give up a super-central accommodation is the apartment in Rambuteau. Rambuteau is also a very important metro station.
Arrondissement 1 is an area of Paris which also Balzac loved a lot! If you would like to stay in a short rental accommodation close to the place that once was his house, I suggest choosing this furnished short rental apartment.
Arrondissement 1 important streets and metro stations
If you are in arrondissement 1 and you love walking in the main streets, take note of these names: rue Etienne Marcel, rue du Louvre, rue Montmartre, avenue de l’Opéra, rue du Punt Neuf, rue de Rivoli, rue Rambuteau. Remember that Etienne Marcel and Rambuteau are metro stations too.
Other metro stations that are very useful when visiting this arrondissement are Tuileries and Pyramides.
If, just like me, you love shopping, go to rue de Rivoli. It is full of boutiques and shops where you can buy something very special.
Don’t get lost! Remember that the districts of the first arrondissement of Paris are Saint-Germain-l’Auxerrois, des Halles, Palais-Royal and the one of Place-Vendome.
