The 10th arrondissement located in Paris on the right bank, is a very popular district, less touristy than the average of the Parisian arrondissements, but with a large number of shops and restaurants. However, the 10th arrondissement is also known for its very pleasant Canal Saint Martin where joggers, walkers and cyclists can enjoy themselves. It is especially busy on sunny days when it is possible to have a drink on one of the many terraces. Besides, the 10th arrondissement has many other remarkable sites: the Gare de l'est, the Porte Saint Martin which marks the border with the 3rd arrondissement, the rue du Faubourg Saint Denis and the various Indian restaurants. Finally, the 10th arrondissement is home to numerous shops with very affordable prices as well as restaurants offering French or world cuisine at really fair prices, not to mention the many 2 to 3 star hotels accessible to all budgets.

When to go to Paris?

It goes without saying that Paris lives all year round, but if you are targeting a particular activity or event, you will have to choose your period. Here are some tips on when to visit Paris.

High tourist season: from May to September, tourists flock in great numbers. It is during this period that the climate is the mildest and many festivals and events take place, such as Roland Garros or the Fête de la Musique. Note that in August, Parisians leave the city for a holiday, which gives a strange atmosphere. Many shops are closed and only the tourist centres are lively. The Christmas holiday season is also very popular, especially for the illuminations and animated shop windows of department stores.

Medium tourist season: in October-November and from March to April, tourism slows down slightly, but not the influx. Indeed, Paris is a dense city and there are almost always people in the transport sector and in the centres of attraction

Low tourist season: there are not really any, except in January and February, months in which hotel rates fall slightly. Paris attracts tourists all the time!
