The 6th arrondissement of Paris is one of the most expensive districts to live in, and it’s justified. Not only is it hyper-central but it also gathers many of the most famous Parisian treasures, such as Le Pont des Arts, Notre-Dame and the wonderful Ile-Saint-Louis. It is always full of tourists because it corresponds to the side of Paris that you most see on postcards, which make it the place to live in if you’re willing to get an intense and fancy Parisian experience.
The 6th arrondissement, located on the Rive Gauche (the luxurious half of Paris), is definitely one of the fanciest of the French capital. Besides all its globally famous monuments, it includes a multitude of luxurious shops and famous cafés, restaurants and pastries. The district’s prestigious reputation is also due to its concentration of world-renowned academic institutions (La Sorbonne, L’Académie Française, L’École des Beaux-Arts, etc.), in addition to being the historical district of the French Intelligentsia, who used to converge in its well-known cultural cafés. The most iconic one is without any doubt Le Flore, where various French intellectual figures such as Jean-Paul Sartre used to gather.
