Your favorite arrondisement for walking?

I have a wonderful National Geographic Traveler book on France. In the Paris section it gives walks for every arrondisement. We won't be able to do them all...I would like to copy one or two for my "take along sheets"..not sure which, We will stay in the 6th so that's a given.....

By the way this book is just glorious!!!

Thanks for any ideas..

I like the 18th (Montmartre), because a walk is not just a walk there--it's a workout (lots of hills and stairs). Also, it has interesting nooks, crannies, and side lanes. Very different from the 6eme (which I also love, but for different reasons).

My favorite walk was a long day that we began from our hotel in the 5th, took metro up to 7th stop nearest to Eiffle Tower, walked back slowly all thru 7th, 6th, and 5th.

I saw it first at the bookstore...and then got it from the library..my edition is from 2000...there may be a newer one but doubt it's necessary..

Correct title:
The National Geographic Traveler
FRANCE

I love wandering the Latin Quarter, especially the Rue Mouffetard area with its markets and inexpensive shops.

I remembered Degas' posts...could not find them but found this:

http://www.fodors.com/forums/threads...2&tid=34511772

if that doesn't work the thread is entitled "Favorite Paris Walks".

I could walk down one side of the Sienne, cross a bridge, walk up the other and cross a bridge and zig-zag the whole way. Leaving lots of time for the occassional terrace..

Hi Lois! My husband and I like walking around Montmartre, but not on the touristy side. We like the little park behind Sacre Coeur and all the streets and stairs behind the church. Did you know there's even a small vineyard in Montmartre? We walked through it during the Garden Weekend last September.

My husband and I loved walking around the Marais district -- from the Place de Vosges (the prettiest and the oldest square in Paris) to Les Halles to Place de Victoires.
The best!
