Discover the 8th

A prestigious address, appreciated by Parisians and travellers alike.

This right bank district is home to architectural treasures, superb museums, iconic sites, luxurious boutiques and bucolic gardens.
The 8th arrondissement attracts visitors who like to stroll along its beautiful avenues lined with private mansions or shop at the most famous brands. From the Arc de Triomphe to the Concorde, the Champs-Elysées invite you to discover their restaurants, shops and museums such as the Grand or Petit Palais. On Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, it is impossible to miss the Palais de l'Elysée or the Hôtel de Beauvau, which houses the Ministry of the Interior, a ten-minute walk from the Hôtel de Montesquieu, while strolling past the art galleries.
Stroll to the quays of the Seine and the Pont de l'Alma, or to the Madeleine church recognisable by its columns. Take in the culture in the various museums. Among them, the Jacquemart André museum, 5 minutes away, reveals one of the most beautiful collections of paintings in Paris.
Day and night, the 8th arrondissement remains lively with its refined cafés, renowned nightclubs and world-famous cabarets such as the Crazy Horse on Avenue George V or the Lido on the Champs-Elysées. Theatre and music lovers are not left out: the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, the Comédie des Champs-Elysées, the Théâtre du Rond-Point, the Théâtre de la Madeleine, the Théâtre de Marigny and the Théâtre des Mathurins are all in the 8th arrondissement.
Finally, for a nature break, head for the Parc Monceau. Beyond the wrought iron gates with their gold-covered spikes, discover over 8 hectares of greenery and serenity. Sit by the pool and admire the superb Corinthian columns under the immense trees.
