The Petite Ceinture is an abandoned railway that used to run all around Paris and is now out of use and abandoned in certain sections. I've been to a few different portions, but I will say that the section in the 14eme right next to Porte d'Orleans is the most impressive portion of them all. Access is not difficult and it seems that there are quite a few people exploring here, too. I love how you can see nature taking over the structure! This stretches in for quite a long time, so photos are a must!

Wearing comfortable shoes is definitely required and just make sure you're going with enough people, because you never know - and there are quite a few sake portions and tunnels here. But definitely BEAUTIFUL and I'll be coming here again.

In 1852 -1869 a 'belt' railway ran around Paris connecting it to the main train stations, known as La Petite Ceinture, now-a-days it is abandoned but sections of it have be urbanised and transformed into a pedestrian way. The morning of our discovery there were several locals jogging along the path or young mothers out pushing prams.

Promenade de la Petite Ceinture is located in the 15th Arrondissement and runs parallel to Boulevards des Marechaux, one entrance to the path is near Metro 'Ballard' down near Parc Andre-Citreon.

There's quite a bit of this old railway left in the 15th, so if you are a fan, like me, this is the place to seek it out. Write a tour book.

The most desired place to see of the entire railway is situated near 16 rue Auguste Cain. When you get there you see a fence, and quite a few holes there you can crawl through, but we personally found it easiest to go through a large opening that had been cut out, and was hidden behind a cardboard sign. Once on the rail, you have to go to the left. Walk a bit until you see a large tunnel. From there you just walk through it, which takes about 20 minutes, and then you're there.
