Arrondissement 17, culture and shopping
Arrondissement 17 used to be a really quiet and residential one. Now, it is one of the most lively! You can find lots of artists and people of all ages that go there to enjoy their spare time in cafès and bistros. In addition, this is an area from where you can go to the other attractions of the city.
This is the perfect arrondissement to visit for art lovers. Here you can admire lots of haussmannian buildings of Paris!
It is a good destination for shopping lovers too! You can do all the activities you prefer without giving up the possibility to experience an authentic parisian day.
Why walk in arrondissement 17
Arrondissement 17 is the area of Paris where lived lots of great artists such as painters and writers. For example Manet, Verlain, Zola, Simenon and Brel. When you go there, you see all the places that inspired them so much.
Plus, the arrondissement XVII is the one where you can find lots of typical markets. Have you ever heard about the flowers one? If you go to Batignolles, you will breathe the most authentic parisian athmosphere.
Another thing that I like is that there are lots of area where cars are not allowed to go. You can walk quiet though roads full of big and small boutiques, atelier, laboratories. If you want to have a good starting point, note down Rue de Lévis!
