  • I have wanted to tour this area for some time. By tour, I mean actually get there and walk around to enjoy the scenery. We really liked walking by the canal, the little shops on the side-streets, the ...  more »
  • We did the Canal St. Martin in 2 parts. We started at Bassin La Vilette where we went by Metro. There bigint the channel with its first lock and bridge. Then you have to cross a big intersection where the Metro goes on, then you come to the next big piece of the channel. It's a lovely walk along all those locks and bridges. Mostly there is a park along with playgrounds and benches where you can also have a picnic. Then the channel goes underground, so you have to cross 2 large crowded squares, like the Place de Bastille. There suddenly the canal comes again aboveground where the port lies. In the end lies the last lock that connects the Seine. We did this in September 2019. Fantastistisch. Next time we take the boat in the harbour, which sails the entire canal, also underground, to La Vilitte basin! Or else. The whole area has been refurbished, and its number of warehouses has become hip spots.
