Another little surprise, from Parc de Villette, rediscovering Canal St. Martin by walking from Parc de Villette to Bastille.
The entire neighborhoods along the way are so lively, especially during the summer months, when Paris Plage is going on. All of the activities here beat the Paris Plage by the Seine. Canal St. Martin, is a 4.5 km long and connects the Canal de l’Ourcq to the river Seine and runs underground between Bastille (Paris Métro) and République (Paris Métro). Takes about two hours and take a leisurely walk.
