The 1st has it all - the Louvre, the Ritz, Chanel, the shops, the Louvre mall, the Tuileries Gardens, the Palais Royale. A great place to start to experience the best that Paris has to offer. And great eateries too!

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops
