Celebrated for its impossibly elegant houses, flawlessly-dressed locals, and striking landmarks, Paris has earned its title as the City of Light for good reason. Each visit to the French capital will have you falling in love over and over, as you tread the graceful streets in search of coffee and a flaky, buttery croissant. But hidden amongst the shadows of the city’s iconic monuments, the heart of Paris lies within its lesser-known neighborhoods, where the pace of life slows considerably, and the streets melt into a warren of houses, boutiques and cafés. To truly experience the city, make sure not to miss these three neighborhoods on your next Paris getaway!

Le Marais – 4th Arrondissement

Known as the city’s most fashionable quarter, Le Marais is a lively, vibrant area located just north of the infamous Notre Dame cathedral. Home to an array of bars, art galleries, and boutiques, as well as the elegant Place des Vosges, this neighbourhood is just a short leap from the bustling city centre, and was once the city’s Jewish quarter.

The Latin Quarter – 5th Arrondissement

Situated on the left bank of the Seine, the Latin Quarter is one of Paris’ most artistic, bohemian neighbourhoods. Home to the Sorbonne University, this quarter is always teeming with life and laughter, with its bars and restaurants open long into the night. The area is famous also for its deep-rooted literary culture, where many writers and authors would gather to discuss their works. Make sure to visit the Shakespeare & Company bookstore.

Passy – 16th Arrondissement

One of the wealthiest areas in the city, Passy is known for its chic vibes, upmarket eateries, and unparalleled view of the Eiffel Tower. The neighbourhood also boasts a number of museums and galleries, its wide, elegant streets lined with Art Nouveau architecture.
