Paris 17_the bohemian

It is a classic Paris arrondissement with many residences, where peace, order, security and stores are closed early. Also, the 17th arrondissement is one of the greenest areas in Paris.
Here we do not find many points of interest, except some picturesque parks and the historic neighborhood Battignoles , a place with alternative bistro and bourgeois bohemian types (the so-called BoBos Bourgeois-Bohèmes).

What to do in Paris 17 ? 🤷‍♂️

Battignoles. The beautiful neighborhood of the 17th arrondissement is a good choice for your evening out if you want to get away from the ordinary.

Park Monceau. A very picturesque park that deserves your attention. It is also the park where Claude Monet used to paint on many of his paintings.
