We all know Paris as the city of lights, the city of romance, the city of great food, but truly it is a mix of hundreds of little neighborhoods and alleys.
Below are 4 neighborhoods you absolutely cannot miss on your trip to Paris!
Canal St Martin
You've probably seen this in the famous French film Amelie! It's a 200 year old canal that is lined with restaurants, shops, and cafes. Its a quite hip place to sit and think, mingle with friends, and meet strangers.
This little spot is actually one of the most up and coming areas of the city, even though most of its architecture dates back to the 17th century. You can explore it in this video below:
This neighborhood is argueably one of the most famous in Paris, and is a haven for artists and creatives. The locals are feircely protective of this neighborhood and fight to make sure it does not become some kind of tourist trap.
This is a historically hip area thanks to decades of brilliant thinkers and questioners like Oscar Wilde, Camus, Sartre, and more! The neighborhood holds tight to this intellectual reputation and is a place where endless cafes and bookstores are to be found.
