    I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Ok, it does't cost much, but there are better and more friendly places at the same price in Paris. They don't clean much in this hotel, you will notice if you dare to go...

Which arrondissement?

by craic

I need some help here if you would be so kind for something I am writing.
My character Pete is having his first overseas trip and he has booked an apartment in Paris.
I want him to say that the apartment is in the something arrondissement near the Sacre Couer. Or the Eiffel Tower. Or some big tourist attraction.

Thank you so much.

Re: Which arrondissement?

by Dabs

Try this website, if you click on the arrondissement, it will tell you which major attractions are in it, the Eiffel Tower is in the 7th, Sacre Couer in the 18th

thanking you for this help

Re: Which arrondissement?

by cochinjew

The Arondissements are arranged in somewhat of a centrifugal fashion in a clockwise rotation.. SC in 18th and TE in 7th. both are good settings for an apartment in a novel, both with distinct characteristics, vastly different from each other..
Just as an aside, both Cuban and Australian Embassies are near Tour Eiffel..

Re: Which arrondissement?

i think my australian tourist on his first visit to france will be very happy in the dix-huitieme (can't do the grave on this machine) on the rive droite near the Moulin Rouge AND Sacre Coeur in Montmartre.
I think he and his good wife will be in 18th heaven. LOL

Re: Which arrondissement?

by Beausoleil

craic, Be sure you have your character exit the Metro at Abbesses (halfway between the Moulin Rouge and Sacre Coeur) at least once. He can have fun climbing the 260+ steps to the top. There's an elevator but of course it will be out of service when he arrives. LOL

BTW, it is a gorgeous glass-covered old-fashioned station and the last hundred or so steps are like a tower . . . circular stairs with wall murals you follow as you gasp your way to the top. Hope your character is in good shape. ;^)

Re: Which arrondissement?

nah poor thing - his wife is slowly going blind and she really wants to see paris

so it is all a bit sad

Re: Which arrondissement?

by cochinjew

I could suggest Retinitis Pigmentosa in which a person slowly goes blind! for your character. I suggest that because Cuba is a world leader in the treatment of this disease!

Re: Which arrondissement?

by craic

it sounds good but i have researched macular degeneration - it is the leading cause of blindness in australia

Re: Which arrondissement?

by cochinjew

is she old or young, macular degeneration affects the older population and RP affects any age but starts earlier in life..not being ironic, but from a novel point of view, RP is much more eye catching, pardon the pun

Re: Which arrondissement?

all my characters are old - i am writing what i know

Travel Tips for Paris

go to L'Arc De Triomphe.

by KiNyA

go to L'Arc De Triomphe.
It is conserated to victory of Napoleon's military. It was finnished in 1836. It's located in the upper end of Avenue des Champs-Elysees. is La Tour Eiffel.
With its 307 meters it's one of Parises most famous things. You can drive up with lift adn then have awsome view to Paris with environts. Highly recommented to visit.

You must go to the Eiffel...

by Ruthy2001

You must go to the Eiffel Tower - yes I know its touristy and that yu can practically see it fromt he airport but - wow - what a stucture - it makes the Forth Road Bridge look like a toy train bridge.

The must fun part though is definately people watching and the amount of art events which are on in the city - didn't manage any this time but saw a great Mark Rothko exhibition a few years ago. Giardin du Luxembourg - a beautiful garden in the middle of the studenty area - across the road from a busy street with Mac Donalds on one corner and Quick Hamburgers on the others its so peaceful and reminded me a little of the parks in Glasgow - it also had some cool open air exhibitions, some sports photos and some interesting wooden sculptures..lovely for a Sunday afternoon stroll..

The Rue de la Paix in Paris

by Klod5

The Rue de la Paix (Peace street) is the most expensive street in the Paris version of the Monopoly game. It connects the Paris Garnier Opera to the 17th century Place Vendome where the famous Ritz hotel is located (have a look below at the picture of Rue de La Paix. Click on it to have it full size).
The Rue de la Paix is above all famous for its very fashionable jewelleries like the world famous Cartier (look at the marvelous ring opposite) and fashion stores. In Rue de la Paix, you will find jewelleries like Cartier (13), the modern and very good Poiray (1), Boucheron and Van Cleef and Arpels (near-by Place Vendome). Tati Or (19), a newcomer, is selling nice jewels at incredibly low prices.
You also find the classical Alfred Dunhill of London (15), the table arts of Christofle (24), the cristal of Daum (4). Charvet (Place Vendome) sells shirts in 6000 fabrics and a few ten thousands beautiful ties. Comptoir Sud Pacifique (17) sells clothes in the Turquoise color of Tahiti.

The Rue de la Paix is near-by the Opera metro station.

My French language ability is...

by Travel_Gal

My French language ability is minimal, and I learned what I know in Canada, which is somewhat different than Parisian French. But during my visit I did try to use my French as much as possible, and those people that I talked with appreciated my attempts. If you know even a few words, try them, and you might be pleasantly surprised.

Eating high up for a view

by painterdave

One of the VT folks wrote me that the Samaritaine is now closed. It would be worth a chance to go to this building and see if a restaurant has replaced it, or some other possible chance to get high up over the river to make a photo.
For this reason I will leave this tip below on VT.

This tip is for thought. Try to find places that allow camera shots from high up.
For instance, there is a department store called, Samaritaine , where there is a restaurant that overlooks a major part of the city.
If the weather is good, I recommend it as it is partially outdoors. The food is reasonable, too.
