17th arrondissement – Arc de Triomphe

Located northwest of the city’s famously glamorous shopping street, the Champs Champs-Élysées, the 17th arrondissement is home to some of the wealthiest residents of Paris. Be sure to look upwards at the buildings when exploring the area since some of the city’s most splendid architecture can be found here adorning the luxurious townhouses. You will also find plenty of delightful small hidden city parks and plazas scattered throughout the neighbourhood.

The south western part of the district has something of an up market feel offering a mid to high end shopping experience that would not be out of place on the nearby Champs-Élysées. The north easterly end has an entirely different feel with its bohemian vibe, laid back bars and bistros and upcoming artists’ studios.

Historically the 17th arrondissement was largely a free open space consisting of hunting grounds and the occasional luxury second home for those seeking fresh air and escape from the hustle bustle of the big city. This continued until the 1800s when industrialists transformed the area beyond recognition with the confident expansion of the city.

17th arrondissement Highlights

The southern tip of the 17th arrondissement is marked triumphantly by the iconic Arc de Triomphe. It stands at the centre of possibly the world’s most famous round-about, Place Charles de Gaulle, at the western end of the Champs-Élysées. It honours those who fought and died for France in the Napoleonic and French Revolutionary Wars and remains one of the most famous landmarks in Paris. Measuring an incredible 164 ft in height it dwarfs nearly everything around it. In 1919 to celebrate the end of World War I Charles Godefroy flew his biplane through the 48 ft wide vault and the event was famously captured on newsreel. Beneath the arch lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I. The grave incorporates an eternal flame which burns in memory of those who died in war time unable to be identified. According to legend, the flame has only ever been extinguished once by a drunken Mexican football supporter on the night that France beat Brazil in Paris at the 1998 FIFA World Cup Final.

The 17th arrondissement is home to the fascinating neighbourhood of Batignolles. Traditionally a working class district with a broad ethnic population, today it has also become something of a magnet for trendy young artists in search of affordable work spaces for their creativity. Indeed the painter Édouard Manet came before them in the 19th century using the area as base with his artistic friends to illustrate many scenes from the neighbourhood’s local café culture. Batignolles has gained a reputation as a very chic place to live in the city and the area has much in store for the future. It had hoped to stage the 2012 Olympics here but of course lost the bid to London. Instead the city council has decided to develop the area for housing, retail, schools and other essential public services.

The district’s Place de Clichy is certainly worth a visit while you are in town. Reminiscent of Times Square and London’s Piccadilly Circus with its large advertising billboards and traffic intersections it has remained fairly untouched by town planners over the years and boasts a certain dusty old school Parisian charm. This is also the point in the city where four separate arrondissements, the 8th, 9th, 17th and 18th, meet. More of a misshapen zone than a specific plaza as such, the Place de Clichy is home to some interesting shops, lots of cafes and restaurants as well as a popular cinema.
