So a bit outside the main and still growing Paris tourist trade, but well in to the daily life with beautiful avenues and parks hidden amongst the prestigious cosmopolitan Parisian townhouses intermixed with the local markets and shopping scattered through this neighborhood. Here you will find some of the best restaurants of the region including Michel Rostang and Guy Savoy (near the Metro Charles de Gaulle Etoile), a pleasure just with the name..!

10th arrondissement The 10 th arrondissement which is found in northeastern Paris has a full multicultural atmosphere, a neighbourhood of musician's and artist's hangouts mixed with students living in revamped apartments all convenient for the largest train stations of Paris, the Gare de l'Est and the Gare du Nord.

Here you will find restaurants from the small, cozy eating house to the biggest and best kitchen any Paris establishment has to offer, cafes and bars on all corners, especially around the Canal St. Martin and the Place de la République, where you will find a sit down with a "cafe au lait" is great for a break after aimless exploring through the streets of this "living" arrondisement.

Looking for some shopping idea's? The 10th still retains some of its old charm, but don' panic there are lots of bustling streets filled with clothing and sports shops and more, while a trip to the St-Quentin market will help if it's fresh fruit and vegtables.
