Barbès Rochechouart / La Goutte D’Or

Do you want to see the Paris that keeps it real? This area, bordering the 19th and 10th arrondissements, will smash any beret-wearing, croissant-eating clichés of Paris you may have — all in a very good way. Visit one of Paris’ largest and most colorful African markets, and don’t forget to check out Le Louxor theater, built in 1921 with neo-Egyptian architecture, preferably after snagging some North African goodies.
