The 11th arrondissement located in Paris on the right bank, is a very popular district, less touristy than the average Parisian district, more residential, but with a large number of shops and restaurants. It is a lively district because it is also a trendy and festive district with bars all along the long Oberkampf Street, especially busy during weekends. The 11th arrondissement is also equipped with essential sites for tourists: Place de la Bastille, famous since the famous 14th July 1789, Place de la République and its very popular atmosphere, Rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine and the numerous furniture stores but also trendy bars. Finally, the 11th arrondissement is also home to many shops at low prices as well as many restaurants offering French or world cuisine at really fair prices, not to mention the many 3 and 4 star hotels which target rather an average budget clientele.

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!
