Interesting Neighbourhoods

You're in for a Treat

Many people come to Paris to experience and indulge in its unique atmosphere. So, which neighbourhoods are quintessentially Parisian? For the most interesting suburbs, start with Le Marais (3rd and 4th), a fashionable district full of hip restaurants. Here is where you’ll find the Musée Picasso, the house of Nicolas Flamel, the Musée Cognacq-Jay, the Musée Carnavalet and the very popular Café Charlot. Or, stroll past the Canal Saint-Martin (between Bastille (Paris Métro) and République (Paris Métro), a popular destination to watch the barges and a place full of restaurants and students. Artsy and multicultural, Belleville (Rue de Belleville, 19th and 20th) literally means "beautiful town". A neighbourhood that was once an independent commune, it has a hill that competes with Montmartre as the highest and most popular in Paris. Enjoy the colourful, multi-ethnic sights, home to one of the city's two Chinatowns, and get a slice of a funky, and very Parisian, atmosphere.
