I just happened to notice your question and followed this comment thread. I am a Paris-based Rick Steves tour guide and live in the 17th arrondissement. Several travelers have been kind enough to share my work as a content creator, ("France with Véro") above.
Like several people have mentioned, the 17th arrondissement is not a touristy area. It has no major landmarks. That's actually great news, because it's a fantastic place to enjoy authentic Parisian life away from crowds ;-) My two favorite corners of the 17th arrondissement are: 1. The gentrified Batignolles area (a former working class village outside Paris.) Perks include the pretty square des Batignolles, a brand-new park (Martin Luther King park,) two fantastic markets (including a covered one opened all week,) and many food specialty shops There are so many restaurants in the neighborhood you will not know where to have dinner. ;-) My favorite place (if you like meat) is "Gaston." 2. The area near Metro "Villiers" and the bustling market street, rue de Lévis. You can't go wrong there. That section is a bit more convenient by Metro (Lines 2 and 3) to head to other sections of Paris than les Batignolles, in my opinion, even if they are only 10 minutes apart.
If you are looking to kick back and enjoy Parisian life, the 17th arrondissement is an excellent choice.
Even if you know Paris well, you may be interested in knowing there are a lot of lesser-told stories to discover in the 17th arrondissement. I suggest you watch the two virtual tours I recently guided in the area. :-) Links are below.
Happy trip planning and Happy Holidays!
