Ménilmontant, home to Maurice Chevalier, is a slice of genuine modern-day workaday Paris only a few Métro stops away from the crushing tourist crowds as it straddles the eleventh and twentieth arrondissments. While it might not be the best choice for first-time visitors to Paris with time constraints in order to visit all the "must-see" places first, Ménilmontant nevertheless offers... More

Staying in Belleville / Pere Lachaise

Neighborhood 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.
