Paris on foot

An architectural walk in the 16th arrondissement

A Parisian experience, Our favourite things, Paris architecture, Paris on foot, Unusual Paris

OK, we admit it – you don’t often see us in the 16th arrondissement, perhaps because it’s very residential and rather sleepy. For our money, Saint Germain (the area our hotels are in) is just as chic and ten times as hip.

But you know us, we just love exploring Paris, and ‘the 16th’ turns out to have more than its fair share of high-class charm. For example, if you like classic Parisian architecture, perfectly preserved streets straight out of a period movie, art nouveau flourishes, leafy private roads and a sweet little cemetery with a view of the EIffel Tower, this is where you should go.

So follow us, and expect a few surprises…
