Great ground level set of arts shops and creative ateliers. Top level has a very nice trail with lots of green. In my opinion, a hidden gem in Paris.

The elevated park above, Promenade des Plantes, is a wonderful walk, up above the traffic. Super popular. Down below is a collection of unusual shops and galleries built in the arches of the former elevated railway.

We started at the Bastille end and walked as far as Bel-Air metro station. The first part of the walk was elevated, as per its New York high line equivalent. In February the plants are principally out of flower but did see a few trees...More

Wanted to stretch our legs a bit after reaching our accommodation in Jussieu following a long train journey. Took in this viaduct along the way. Nice walk among the greenery and some good elevated views. Good to see that the arches below are used too,...More

Amongst all the artisan and artist workshops I saw at the Viaduc des Arts, the Parasolerie Heurtault was my favourite. Michel Heurtault creates bespoke umbrellas for people or the movie and theatre industry, and restores old umbrellas and parasols as well. His workshop is like...More

The Viaduc des Arts and the Promenade Plantée are a bunch of artisanal shops under the arches of an old viaduct, and a long planted path (sort of like NYC's High Line, which post-dates this). It's worth a walk along the many shops along Ave...More

We walked the old viaduct turned park and were surprised to find deep rooted trees and really nicely configured garden. It is above the traffic and had some romantic views of the streets. Joggers love it and cyclists don't use it. We walked back at...More

I was curious to walk this Promenade Plante, at least to compare it to the Highline in NYC. I also was quite disappointed as the views were ordinary and the walk itself had greenery but almost no flowers. Not worth going out of your way...More

Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise
lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and
impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small
parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy
Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois
de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on
its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to
this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make
