The 11th arrondissement of Paris is one of the 20 arrondissements (administrative districts) of the capital city of France.
Situated on the Right Bank of the River Seine, the 11th is one of the most densely populated urban districts not just of Paris but of any European city.
The eleventh arrondissement is a varied and engaging area. To the west lies the Place de la République, which is linked to the Place de la Bastille, in the east, by the sweeping, tree-lined Boulevard Richard-Lenoir, with its large markets and children's parks. The Place de la Bastille and the rue du Faubourg St Antoine are full of fashionable cafés, restaurants, and nightlife, and they also contain a range of boutiques and galleries. The Oberkampf district to the north is another popular area for nightlife. The east is more residential, with more wholesale commerce, while the areas around the Boulevard Voltaire and the Avenue Parmentier are livelier crossroads for the local community. In recent years this district has emerged as one of the trendiest regions of Paris.
The Bastille neighborhood are the remains of the fortress between St. Antoine Street and the Boulevard Henri IV, the column of July in the center of the Place de la Bastille, the Boulevard Beaumarchais, Bastille Opera, the Arts Viaduct from 1 to 129 Dausmesnil Avenue and not to be missed in this district, the Avenue Daumesnil Planted Walk the Bois de Vincennes
The area of the Faubourg Saint-Antoine is the Rue de la Roquette, rue de Lappe that comes alive especially at night, the Daval street, the rue Keller, street Charonne, the Sainte-Marguerite, instead Doctor Béclère with its fountain of Montreuil. This place, with its varied shops and its motley population is both friendly and very few tourists. How not to mention the Faubourg Saint-Antoine, stroll around the suburb, stroll around the Square Trousseau, the passage of the Main-d'Or, the passage of Construction and linger in front of the shop front Ligne Roset at 25 rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine, combining ornate cast iron and large windows.
