The city of Paris is divided into 20 autonomous and numbered arrondissements or municipal districts. However, this topographical subdivision does not always correspond to specific districts.

In fact, most of the districts of Paris have a precise historical and cultural identity to the point of being called ‘villages’, each with its own particular atmosphere. Some districts such as Pigalle or, Belleville straddle two different arrondissements.
