Paris/15th arrondissement

Default Banner.jpg

The 15th arrondissement of Paris is located in the south-west of the city on the Left Bank of the river Seine.

Understand

The 15th, the largest arrondissement of central Paris, remains heavily residential, up-market and quiet - not a great deal of obvious attractions for the traveller here.... Several sights, however, might make a detour worthwhile. Especially of note is the fact that meeting a real parisienne might make it worth the trip.
