Owner description: 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.

This is the heart of the city with wonderful food markets and splendid architecture. Lots of affordable interesting restaurants and cafes that fill up with the hipsters. Super cool part of town.

I keep a travel journal with me and noted that this area had many unique and interesting to see alleys. The area has much more indeed to offer besides alleys but everyone has already told you about them, but the alleys are what caught my attention here. I perhaps wouldn’t travel them alone at night if I were a female or had a family but if you are young and adventurous, it is a pretty cool thing to check out in my opinion.

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 east and Les Halles and rue de Rivoli to the south, so it is likely you will pass thru the 2nd. So no attractions, but wherever you walk in Paris, you will enjoy great architecture.
