It's a good option when visiting Paris on a budget
Ivry is a town next to Paris in the south. The number 7 subway line is very close. It's a good option when visiting Paris on a budget. There are some hotels, which are usually cheaper than inside Paris, and line 7 takes you to the center of Paris in 25 minutes. Most students look for a flat Ivry because line 7 goes by Sorbonne and several universities. Ivry has a small, pretty center with a church and town hall. Then there is also an ugly part where officially protected buildings were quickly constructed in the 60s. The residents are a mixture of people that have spent 50 years living in Ivry, and people of all countries who arrived recently.
