The 1st arrondissement of Paris is located in the heart of historical Paris, on the right bank of the Seine. It includes one of the oldest districts of the city, called Les Halles, which dates from the beginning of the Middle Age (fifth century). Easily accessible by six bridges or footbridges: Pont au Change, Pont Neuf, Pont des Arts, Carrousel Bridge, Pont Royal and Passerelle Léopold-Sédar-Senghor, the 1st arrondissement has the largest area of public green spaces in Paris with the Tuileries Garden, Jardin du Carrousel, Jardin des Halles, Jardin de l'Infante, Oratory Garden, Jardin du Palais-Royal, Vert-Galant Square and Place de Dauphine Square. Of the five "Royal Squares" of Paris, three are in the district : Place Vendome, Place des Victoires and Place Dauphine. The 1st district also offers two outside food markets, the Saint-Eustache Market and the Marché Saint-Honoré, as well as the rue Montorgueil, the most in style pedestrian shopping street in Paris.
The second arrondissement of Paris, former textile wholesalers' quarter named "Le Sentier", has been transformed into "Silicon Sentier". However, thanks to the rue Montorgueil and the covered passageways of the 19th century, such as the Choiseul Gallery, the Passage des Princes, the Passage du Grand-Cerf, the Passage des Panoramas and the Galerie Vivienne, this "smallest district of Paris" has kept his historical side. The Opera-Comique is an architectural gem where you can discover Offenbach and the like, with wonderful Operettes. The splendid Place des Victoires recalls the omnipotence of the "sun king" Louis XIV. Also discover Japanese cuisine all along St. Anne's Street. And finally, the "Fury Room" -a new concept of "stress relief" from Japan- to relieve you from all urban rage, if any!
