lovers of leisurely walks :
you want to wander round the 9th arrondissement, go to the Nouvelle-Athènes
neighbourhood. With its authentic little streets such as the Rue

lovers of culture :
9th arrondissement offers relatively few museums and other cultural
resources. In the neighbourhood of the big boulevards you can, however,
find the Musée Grévin, where a large number of celebrities
have their double in wax. Greatly loved by children!
this same neighbourhood, you can find the Musée de l'Opéra
and the library, which teaches you the history of the Palais Garnier,
with famous ballet costumes, and photos and paintings entirely devoted
can visit two museums in the Nouvelle-Athènes neighbourhood:
the Musée de la Vie Romantique, which will let you discover
or rediscover the great Romantic artists with temporary exhibitions.
And the Musée Gustave Moreau, which offers a testimony of
his works of art.
lovers of shopping :
9th arrondissement is a source of joy for you, as you can dream
in front of well-stocked and decorated windows of shops all around
Boulevard Haussman. The biggest department stores of the capital
have all set up here: Le Bon Marché, La Samaritaine, Le Printemps
and Galeries Lafayette.
if you prefer cheaper shops, the Barbès neighbourhood is
for you, especially with its imposing Tati.
