THE ARRONDISSEMENTS OF PARIS

PARIS IS DIVIDED INTO ADMINISTRATIVE DISTRICTS KNOWN AS ARRONDISSEMENTS
The twenty arrondissements are arranged in the form of a clockwise spiral starting from the middle of the city, with the first on the Right Bank (north bank) of the Seine.

In Paris, notably on street signs, the number is often given in Roman numerals. For example, the EiffelTower belongs to the VIIe arrondissement while Gare de l’Est is in the Xe arrondissement.
