November 04, 2020
Going to Paris for vacation is one thing, but actually moving there is an entirely different matter. For one thing, you have to choose which arrondissement you're going to call home. With over 20 in total, it's difficult to choose which one. Though going with the first ain't half bad! After all, this place has a perfect balance of hustle and hush that's great for a city lifestyle. And while there are many tourist spots here, they're only half of the reason why you should consider relocating to this part of Paris. Here are a few others worth mentioning.

And there's no denying that this part of the French capital is one of the most beautiful.

So Many Places to Stroll To

All the aforementioned places on the last point are also great spots for a nice stroll. Though living in Paris will probably have you walking around anyways, there's nothing like taking a stroll for leisure. To get lost in your own thoughts without any worry of a destination. To enjoy the beautiful views this city has to offer. And to catch your breath, take a break, and calm your mind amidst one of the busiest metropolises in the world.

Easy Access to The Louvre

Living near the Louvre has its many perks. The first is that you get easy and instant access to the world-famous museum whenever you can. This allows you to explore the other parts of this vast gallery, those that aren't filled with tourists snapping away. The second perk is that, since the museum is somewhat of a central area in the city, expect easy access with public transport as well. In this busy spot, you'll have little to no trouble getting a taxi that you won't even need an app to hail one. And third? When your friends and family visit you in Paris, there's automatically one tourist activity, near your home, they can do no problem!

The Lap of Luxury in Paris

Okay, perhaps it's a bit of a stretch to say that the 1st arrondissement is the "lap of luxury of Paris." The city is known for haute living and the fashion capital of the world, so most of the places here have their own little havens of luxury. But the 1st arrondissement definitely has one of the most famous: Rue St. Honoré! Regarded by many as the "home of haute couture" in the French capital, you'll find that countless French designer brands and luxury labels from other countries have set up shop here. For those of you who want to live as a fashionable Parisian, settling down near this street in the 1st arrondissement will be a wise move!

A Reader's Paradise

Reading a book in a café with a cup of coffee or on a park bench by a beautiful garden sounds like the ultimate leisurely activity in Paris, doesn't it? It's so stereotypically French, you almost don't want to do it! But go ahead, no one's judging you! In fact, the people around you might even be too busy reading themselves to care about what you're doing. Most especially if you're living in the 1st arrondissement because the area has a stunning library, Librairie Galignani, located along Rue de Rivoli. Here, you can get your fair share of French classics and other literary works that tickle your fancy.

A Peaceful Corner of Paris

If you can find peace in Paris, you hit the jackpot. The city is just so busy and bustling that, at times, you just need a break. And the 1st arrondissement has a lot of places just for that! Yeah, a good number of the French capital's most famous tourist attractions are located here, but they only make up about half of the area. The 1st arrondissement is a healthy balance of tourist hotspots and local retreats that's simply perfect.
