How to boil down the 9th arrondissement? Opéra Garnier and Grands Boulevards perform double duties as the stately heart of Haussmann architecture, and veins of avenues swimming with shoppers and carousers. Belle époque era passageways tunnel off the boulevards and ‘Swiss cheese’ the arrondissement. The faubourgs, or “suburbs”, slope up towards the base of Montmartre, where in yesteryear the middle‐class dared not set foot and the poorer working class called home. Arches mimicking the Arc du Triomphe mark where metropolitan Paris stopped and the neer‐do‐well faubourgs began.
Today, the Rue du Faubourg de Montmartre, Rue du Faubourg St. Denis, and Rue du Faubourg Poissoniére are hangouts for hipster students, bobos, and immigrants from southeast Asia and Africa. Tease your tastebuds with artisan ice cream and chicken asses (explained later) on the Rue des Martyrs. Add to your vintage couture collection and enjoy a romantic cuppa tea in an aptly named museum café.
To begin, take metro line 8 to Opéra. Exit to face the dazzling Opéra Garnier. Commissioned by Napoléon III in 1861, the ornately sculpted and gilded building was dedicated to “art, luxury, and pleasure”. The interior ceiling painted by Marc Chagall almost steals the show, and caused outrage when it was painted over the original mural in 1964.
