Paris: 11th Arrondissement

When Emma moves to Paris to write her first novel, she finds a charming artist-style apartment in the 11th arrondissement. For those Paris-savvy people, it’s a perfect neighborhood. Previously a quiet, if densely populated, working-class area, the 11th has recently become the hip spot for up-and-coming writers and artists. Perhaps the neighborhood's most important landmark, the Bastille, was the fortress stormed on July 14, 1789 by the angry mob who took over the arms depot, thus sparking the French Revolution. Today, the area is home to the Opéra Bastille, Paris’ stunning modern opera house. The bars and nightclubs along Rue Oberkampf in the 11th provide plenty of fun for the young and adventuresome, while more restrained enjoyment can be found at the Cirque d’hiver and the Edith Piaf Museum.
