FRANCE PARIS 11 e residence immeuble parisienCompared to its neighbours, the 11th arrondissement of Paris is a rather low-profile area. More of a residential district, the section is one of the most densely populated areas in Europe. Located close to the Bastille, the 11th arrondissement saw the birth of the French Revolution. Hence, it ran the risk of becoming a dodgy, working class neighbourhood in its early days. However, thanks to the opening of the nearby Opéra Bastille, the section cleaned up and is now home to a dynamic nightlife, filled with bars, music and clubs.
