One of my favorite sections in Paris, home to lots of theaters and the lovely homes where theater stars lived in the 19th Century. Also home to great restaurants and good places to stroll. My favorite is the area around Square St. George.

This is a beautiful district of Paris, where shopaholics would have the time of their lives. For the rest of us, though, it's possible to enjoy this district by strolling through its beautiful and classic buildings.
