Paris Center – Many of the sites you’ve always associated with Paris – the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Luxembourg Gardens, Notre Dame – are here! (So are most of the tourists, and some of the world’s highest real estate prices.) We love it here, but the truth is: real Parisians generally live elsewhere.
Paris North – The charming, winding streets of Montmartre, the easy, laid-back charm of Canal St. Martin make this the Paris of dreams.
