The Basics

Situated on the right bank of the River Seine, the 10th Arrondissement is a worthy destination even if you're not planning a day trip by train. Here, find real Parisian life, since few tourist attractions are located in the neighborhood. The 10th is a great destination for dinner after visiting the museums—both Centre Pompidou and Picasso National Museum are located just to the south—or after shopping in the upscale Marais district.
