We had a few hours to kill before heading to Orly for our flight home, it was a perfect / tranquil way to finish our long weekend in Paris. Most of it was on an old viaduct above the streets, moving on to street level...More
Beautiful stores selling interesting items, lots of artisans engaging in their crafts. A totally enjoyable walk of discovery. And, of course, the coulee verte, is right above. I completely disagree with the negative review of the prior reviewer, westwilshire, perhaps they suffered from visiting in...More
The area under the old railroad tracks has been transformed into a series of shops selling specialized goods. High end. Up above is one of Paris' most beautiful and unique parks, the Promenade Plantee. I never get tired of walking along it.

Good to see that the arches below are used too,...More
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make
