This wonderful walk provides a great change of pace from the busy streets of Paris. Meandering through the city, yet entirely separate, this re-imagined railway line provides an amazing garden escape. We did this easy 5km walk on a weekend and it was surprisingly un-busy...More

We probably wouldn't have know about this, had we not been staying nearby. At home, we have the 606/Bloomingdale Trail. This was much better, the landscaping was much nicer; it's more park than throughway. It was like a nice relaxing stroll in the city without...More

Lovely park on an elevated railway track and the walk is about 4km, about 1hour. Lots of plants and shrubs. Not right in the centre of the city and the nearest metro station is Bastille.

young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards
