Overview

Located on the right bank of the River Seine, the 2nd arrondissement, together with the adjacent 8th and 9th arrondissements, hosts an important business district, centered on the Paris Opéra, which houses the city's most dense concentration of business activities. The arondissement contains the former Paris Bourse (stock exchange) and a large number of banking headquarters, as well as a textile district, known as the Sentier, and the Opéra-Comique concert hall.

Very central neighborhood and one of my favorites, not so much because of the sites, but because of the street life. Lots of cafes and restaurants, many with reasonable prices. Youthful. But don't miss the covered passages.

The 2nd Arrondissement is an important area of business and banking in this primarily financial district.

You may not go there for anything specific, except maybe the Paris Bourse, which I went to take a pic. But you can not get in, so do not bother. However you have Boulevard Haussmann and Grands Boulevard to the north, Opera house to the...More

Be very careful around this neighborhood particularly in to the intersection of the 2nd and 10th arrondissement around the area of the Arc of Saint Denis. Although the area is beautiful, very ethnic, with a lot of different food options and inexpensive restaurants, it has...More

This area isn't touristy but the buildings have a quaint old world charm about them. Also there are some lovely hidden areas for the local people to enjoy - for example the Fontaine Louvois (see pic) which is inside a park with lots of seating...More

Expensive area to live to be sure. Walked through this area to go to an international bank. Also walked past a market outside the Palais Brongniart. 1837.

Stayed here many times and will return as this area is in the middle of it all. Also very lively with a great cafe and restaurant selection. The food market on Rue Montorgueil. The covered passages. Lots of beautiful historic buildings. Rue Reamur!

Il secondo distretto di Parigi è uno dei meno interessanti tre tutti i 20 della città. Questo è il quartiere finanziario della città pertanto gli uffici si susseguono pertanto dal punto di vista turistico non troverete nulla di interessante. Potrete trovare qualche ristorantino, bar o...More

The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
