Come see one of Paris' famous working class neighborhoods, now full of immigrants. Some splendid views as it is up on the hill.

Located in the 20 arrondissement, Ménilmontant is a favourite of ours to frequent, we especially love the Moroccan eateries located in the area for a cheap meal.

Stayed here on my second visit to Paris. We stayed for three weeks in an apartment and really enjoyed the area just off rue Oberkamp . Quite a trendy area I'm led to believe and from the noise outside our window near the bar, quite a happy place to be. I would fall asleep at about 7 AM every morning... More

This road is very unique and interesting. We can see the eiffel tower from the end of the road. The view even nicer in the evening since we can see the lights illuminating the eiffel tower.

Staying in Belleville / Pere Lachaise

Neighbourhood Profile
Belleville / Pere Lachaise
At the eastern edge of Paris lies Belleville / Père Lachaise, an understated wonderland of local treasures. Alongside the world-famous cemetery, family-owned delicatessens and cafés nestle between local stores and establishments. The richness of the population here has created a little Chinatown of Asian restaurants, and the area comes to life at night by a funky underground scene. Façades change from one street to another as one passes from white walled provincial homes to tall blocks and reconverted homes. The whole area is an inspirational mix of people from all corners of the world frequented by artists, students, immigrants, and Parisian families. Once home to supporters of the Paris commune, its rebellious nature is now offset by its rural charms.
