We were on a mission to discover 'off-the beaten-track' places on our recent trip to Paris. The barge cruise on the canal, followed by a walk totally ticked the box. It was the perfect way to spend a warm summer day. I found lots of...More

Away from the hustle bustle of the chaotic city this is a place for a quiet stroll along the canal where the extension of the Siene river flows. One finds people along with their children out here enjoying each other's company basking in the sun....More

Walk along the Canal Saint Martin from Place de la Bastille to the Bassin de la Villette and you won't be disappointed. It will be a very pleasant interlude, punctuated (if you are like me) by drinks/coffees at bars along the way. The Bassin is...More

Best wander place in Paris. Especially if its sunny, you can enjoy a bmdrink by the canal with your friends listening to strangers playing music. It's so busy after work but it's a great opportunity to socialise and meet new people!

We spent an entire afternoon along canal Saint Martin and adored every single second of it! We could have not been happier. There is a beautiful park along it and lovely shops. Plus you can take a boat and navigate it. An absolute pleasure

We took our teenage kids and stayed near the Canal Saint-Martin. It was close to the tube and in the heart of Paris living. Lots of shops, restaurants and just interesting things to do. People watching was good too.

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
