“Country stroll in downtown Paris”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The beautiful pathway is very well designed, has delightful foliage and easy access from the ground. Although it has views of the city, it can not be easily seen from the streets below. It is worth a visit for its own sake but would be a great place to take a stroll prior to attending an event at Opéra Bastille.

“Fantastic place for a jog”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

It is shy of 4km but a really nice run. Plenty of joggers and walkers, but no need to worry about traffic! It is quiet, pretty and you obtain some interesting viewpoints of Paris.

“Charming promenade, even in November”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Paris has some wonderful green spaces, and this one is a winner in a different way. You can walk for a very long way above the traffic, getting a look at side streets, differing architectural vistas, and some pretty gardens along the way. Relaxing walkway, populated primarily by real Parisians of all ages.

“A lovely place to run or stroll above the streets of Paris”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

I found this in my lonely planet guide book. At 4.5 km long this old railway is lined with trees and shrubs and benches, elevated above the streets of Paris. Below designers and artisans have their shoppes. A lovely place to get away from the packed walkways of Paris and take in the beauty of the buildings, birds, and flowers.

“Nice stroll through paris..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Read abou this on TA and thought it would be a nice place to stretch the legs, once passed the Opera house(complete with homeless living in tents beside it) it is a little bit of a u-turn and up a set of stairs to the end othe promanade, I walked all along the elevated section and then throught the sunken valley section before hiring a velib bike and cycling back the other way as far as was possible.
A bit quite on a early saturday morning but can see why it would be busy in the summer, just wish the scouge of the grafiti could be cleaned up....
