The 8th arrondissement of Paris is one of the 20 arrondissements (administrative districts) of the capital city of France. Situated on the right bank of the River Seine and centred on the Opera, the 8th is, together with the 2nd and 9th arrondissements, one of Paris’s main business districts. According to the 1999 census, it was the place of employment of more people than any other single arrondissement of the capital. It is also the location of many places of interest, among them the Champs Elysees, the Arc de Triomphe and the Place de la Concorde, as well as the Elysee Palace, official residence of the President of France. The 8th Arrondissement of Paris is home to the Champs Elysee, which ends up at the Arc de Triomphe. The executive branch of French government is also based here, as well as the embassies of certain nations such as the U.S.
