It's not in the center of Paris, and there are no great museums or monuments here, but Butte Aux Cailles is a lovely village in the city, a lovely residential area with some cool cafes and restaurants, easy to get to on the Metro. Take...More

Off the beaten path, but not too much, as this area has been discovered. It's a great place to stroll and enjoy the village atmosphere and look at restaurant menus. Stop for a coffee. Really lovely area.

La Butte-Aux-Cailles is one of those areas generally ignored by tourists. The main reason is the fact that it is located in a district not renowned for its attractiveness. However, you won't regret taking some time here. It is still a calm place, far from...More

Residential neighborhood in the 13th, used to be undiscovered, now gentrified. Some pleasant neighborhood cafes and restaurants. Some street art. But best of all are the many pleasant quiet streets to explore.

This is a small section in the otherwise unremarkable 13e which contains Chinatown with a lot of immigrants from China, India, Africa which gives a unique feel with downscale mom and pop stores - But Butte Aux Cailles is a genuinely French village and charming...More

Place d'Italie / Quartier Asiatique
Far off the beaten path, this part of Paris is a
forgotten gem worth exploring. Avenue d’Ivry houses
Europe's largest Chinatown with great Asian
supermarkets and shops, and a thrilling atmosphere
around Chinese New Year. Place d’Italie impresses
onlookers as soon as they set their eyes on it. Not

imitate provincial France and you’ll feel like you’ve
