A short walk from Metro Republic Perfect for a stroll along the canal - there are many little bridges along the way

If you like to discover the canal cruises with very interesting sights of an other side of Paris, it's more to discover the campagne and the constructed locks, to take through a lock, nice attraction.

Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point
of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris.
Watch boats travel along the canal while lovers and
friends take in the atmosphere from the banks or the
bridges. Evenings see hoards fill the embankments to
drink wine and enjoy good company. The colder days
lead people to hipster bars, cozy restaurants, and
concert spaces. Those who are more adventurous may
