Everywhere ! Basically don't enter Paris. Especially le Louvre, eiffel tower, arc de triomphe... i would advise staying in the countryside. :)

All of Paris. No need to come.

I believe you have more risks to meet pickpockets (well, you will probably not notice anything until you look for your wallet) in the 1st district than in the 18th.
Be careful with groups of "romani" teenagers begging you to sign a petition. Once you signed, they won't let you go until you give a certain amount of money. If you give only 5 euros, they keep on harassing you to get more. Usually, after a while people give them money to make them go away! Also, when you are signing, they take advantage of the situation to discreetly steal your money....

I'm American, I've been to Paris twice. I think the only reason there would be "no-go zones for Americans" woudl be if the American in question is acting like a jerk. So - if you don't act like a jerk, you can go anywhere.

Seriously, I felt safer walking the streets of Paris on my own, than I do walking in American cities.

There are no no go zone. I have seen some comments below talking about the 18th 19th 20th districts but it is all nonsense. 1st, there are a lot of americans there, 2nd, you will miss out a lot of nice places. Of course those areas will not look like the typical places in Paris but people are nice, there are cheap good bars and restaurants and things to see that are worth it. Finally if it is for a safety reason, my advise is to be careful whenever you are. It is the same whether you are in Paris, Rome, London or any big cities in the usa. Enjoy your time in Paris!

They're everywhere ;)!!! Joke aside Resa, don't worry Paris is safe for Americans and there's no such thing as no go zones, you can travel in Paris as safely as any other city in the world, especially in touristic areas. A bit of common sense and keeping an eye on your belongings in crowded places will be helpful, apart from that you shouldn't have any problem. Bienvenue and enjoy your stay!

There aren't any. That's a ridiculous idea.

Half of the world is a no gone zone for Americans ;) but in Paris none, 18,19,20 are only a bit poorest than the rest of Paris, but absolutely not a" no go zone"

U'd better avoid 18,19,20 arrondissement. Mostly upper seine river. On Sunday and monday night, there are few bars opened.

Avoid the north, especially 18,19,20 arrondissement. On Sunday night, probably only few bars are opened

if you avoid 18th, means you avoid Montmartre
if you avoid 19th means you avoid some of the best "underground" art places of Paris (including 104)
if you avoid 20th, it means you avoid the most beautiful view on Paris...
That would definitely be a shame...

Just as a reminder, if you use to follow FOX news and this map : https://www.reddit.com/r/europe/comments/2se99f/paris_nogo_zones_according_to_fox_news/
THAT WAS A FAKE NEWS.

THERE IS NO No-go-zone in Paris (inner city).

Hi Resa,

I'm an American who's visited Paris. What's making you think that there are "no-go zones" for us?
