17th Arrondissement - Paris

District Profile

The 17th arrondissement is roughly divided into the upper (or upper-upper middle) class section, bordering the 8th Arrondissement (= its southern/western half), and the more middle-class and even working-class section (= the northern/eastern one).

The district is mostly residential, except on its southern fringes (near the Arc de Triomphe, where it’s quite touristy) and along the Boulevard Périphérique (where one finds office towers and structures like the Palais des Congrès convention center).
