I started my walk on the Coulee Vert Rene-Dumont (Promenade Plantee) near the Bel Air Metro stop and ended at the exit near the Bastille. Even in February, it is beautiful. The trees are still mostly bare but flowers were just starting to bloom on...More

Lovely, elevated walking path to see the city, super tranquil and calming - highly recommend! You'll pass many arch ways, viewpoints, fountains, overpasses, and mini green areas with pet owners and families.

I don’t really have anything to add to what others have already. This is a beautiful walk and an interesting slice of Paris. If you enjoy urban walks and parks, you will love this.

Promenade plantée is not a first choice for regular tourists. Maybe it's unknown from most of them, but is an unique garden in Paris portfolio. It was built over several arches from old railway tracks were now stores and culture spots are located, making it...More

This is one of my favorite walks, and it can be very long, depending upon how far you want to go. Traces the path of the old suburban railroad, with lovely landscaping. Very popular.

I didn't know it used to be an old elevated railway. It's a nice feeling to walk here with all the plants around. Try walking till the end and you'll end up in a park. It's certainly a must do. You can see the neighborhood...More

What do you do with an old elevated railway? Why, bring in some dirt and plant it with roses and shrubs. This is a unique linear green space in the 12th. You will see people jogging or just soaking up the sun while you stroll...More

I have visited Paris many times but have never walked the Paris Highline so it was on my 'must do' list. It is a walk of about 3 miles/5km much of it on a disused railway line that cuts through the busy city. Enjoy this...More

This was the first green space constructed on an old elevated train line -- it served as the inspiration for the High Line in NYC. There is no charge to walk along the 3-mile garden 10 meters above street level -- several access points along...More

We know Paris reasonably well and wanted to do something a little different. The walk is pleasant in parts and, honestly, nothing of any note in others. The start is a nice elevated walkway with pleasant plants and flowers and reasonable views of a not...More

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards
