    Around Paris' main attractions

    This is the title of a section of a restaurants guide where restaurants are mapped around the Paris' main attractions. Two questions: Is the apostrophe required? Would "Around main Paris' attractions" or any other formulations be better?

    Re: Around Paris' main attractions

    "... restaurants around Paris's main attractions" would be my preferred wording for this. Some people would omit the second 's', but the apostrophe is necessary.
    "... around the Paris's main attractions ..." is wrong, and so is "around main Paris's attractions".
    You might be more comfortable with "... restaurants around [some of] the main attractions of Paris."

    Re: Around Paris' main attractions

    Thank you Raymott.

    As it is a section title, I want to keep it short. I think I don't need to add the word "restaurants" as it is obvious. Is "Around Paris' main attractions" correct and clearly understandable?

    Yes, it is, within the context of a restaurant guide.
