Several tourists who are going on their first Paris sightseeing tours are not aware of the fact that the French capital has been divided into twenty different administrative districts or arrondissements. Each district is different from the other and they are special in their own way.
Some of these Parisian districts are more ‘touristy’ than the others are, as a few of the neighborhoods prefer to remain calm and quiet. However, all the 20 districts in the city are worth a visit. So, try to cover at least a dozen of the unique and elegant districts in the city before ending your Paris city tour.
One of the finest administrative districts or arrondissements in the City of Lights is undoubtedly the fourth district, which houses the famous Le Marais neighborhood. If the Parisian dressing styles ever inspire you and urge you to renew your wardrobe to look like a native, head straight to any one of the famous brands or vintage stores in the district.
Another fascinating thing you will notice while taking a stroll through the elegant streets of Paris’ fourth district is that the place is filled with open-minded people.
