Walks in the 9th arrondissement
Les Grands Boulevards
One of the liveliest districts in Paris
The Grands Boulevards are home to many Parisian landmarks, starting with the Musée Grévin. This waxwork museum, which needs no introduction, boasts an impressive collection of 200 figures, including scientists, politicians and the world's best-known stars. The Musée Grévin is a legendary place to visit in Paris.
The Grands Boulevards are full of theatres of all sizes, offering a wide range of plays at very affordable prices. The Théâtre des Variétés or the Théâtre du Gymnase Marie Bell present lively comedies and shows, synonymous with entertainment, in a setting that is always warm and welcoming. All these points of interest are within easy walking distance of our hotel in the 9th arrondissement.
The covered passageways, places steeped in history in Paris
There are many covered passageways in Paris. Sometimes well-known, sometimes more discreet, they are delightful escapes from time. Their restaurants and small, intimate, specialised shops are an invitation to stroll. Their calm atmosphere is welcome during a visit to the hectic city centre. Around twenty of them are located in the Grands Boulevards district. Among the best known is the Passage des Panoramas, the oldest of them all. This is the same passage that houses the Théâtre des Variétés. Don't miss these emblematic Paris landmarks during your stay at our hotel in the 9th arrondissement.
Rue des Martyrs
A hotbed of Parisian entertainment
Rue des Martyrs was once a road leading to the village of Montmartre. Now a modern, relaxed street, it is a pleasant, lively place to stroll, with restaurants, shops, cafés and concert halls. In this charmingly preserved street, neighbourhood life has endured over the years. Visitors can enjoy sitting on a café terrace, admiring the art galleries in the adjoining streets, or heading for the lively Pigalle district.
Going out on the Grands Boulevards
10 minutes' walk from our hotel in the 9th arrondissement of Paris
The famous Grands Boulevards were created in place of the old fortifications of Paris. They have always been a popular place to stroll, admiring the perfect alignment of Haussmann buildings. Dotted with theatres, shops, restaurants, cinemas and museums, they offer a wide range of entertainment and are well worth the diversions when visiting Paris. From the Hôtel Impérial Paris, a charming hotel in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, it's easy to get there to enjoy the lively atmosphere and perhaps take in a play.
