11th Arrondissement Tours and Activities

11th Arrondissement
The 11th Arrondissement is a densely populated area in central Paris, on the right bank of the River Seine, nestled between the cosmopolitan 3rd and up-and-coming 10th. Here you find two of Paris' largest open air markets, acclaimed restaurants, and busy public squares. The 11th is a slice of Parisian life, in the heart of the city.

The Basics

The 11th Arrondissement is a worthwhile destination in its own right, or you can explore the area after a day of museum touring. You can walk to the area in about 30 minutes from the National Picasso Museum and the Centre Pompidou. Among the popular stops: Place De La République, a bustling district hub, and the boutique-packed stretch on Rue de Charonne and nearby Rue Keller. Another great option is to take a hop-on hop-off bus tour—which typically stop in the 11th.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The humble Eglise Saint-Ambroise offers daily mass, a draw for some religious visitors.
  • Art lovers should book tickets for a performance at the Opéra Bastille, which is part of the Opéra National de Paris.
  • Consider booking a quirky activity in the 11th Arrondissement, like tarot reading.

How to Get There
Because of its central location, the 11th Arrondissement is well connected by public transit. You can take the 2, 3, 5, or 8 metro lines—depending on your 11th Arrondissement destination—though your best bet is the 9. Find the 9 running along Boulevard Voltaire—with four stops within the Arrondissement—it offers easy travel from several nearby attractions, including the must-see Avenue des Champs-Élysées.

When to Get There

The bustling 11th Arrondissement is pleasant year-round. For shopping on the Rue de Charonne, visit after lunch, but avoid Sundays, as boutiques may be closed. Arrive in the early evening for a drink and stay for dinner. Since you can expect a wait at popular eateries, be sure to call for reservations—many Paris restaurants don't accept online reservations.

Visiting the Musée Edith Piaf

If you love music, or just appreciate a quirky museum experience, visit the Musée Edith Piaf. Enter the French chanteuse's former apartment to find an intimate museum packed with ephemera celebrating her career, from photos and gold records, to some of Piaf's dresses. Expect to practice your French while chatting with the museum's docent, and call in advance—this free museum requires a reservation.
