Paris - Bastille & Eastern Paris

Bastille isn’t known for its sights, but it’s nonetheless a fascinating area to explore on foot. As it’s still authentically residential in most parts, a wander will give you a taste of everyday life in one of Paris’ most dynamic neighbourhoods.

- take in a backstage tour and opera, ballet or concert recital at the modern monolith of Opéra Bastille, on the landmark square where revolutionaries stormed the Bastille in 1789

- join Parisians for a weekend jog or stroll along the foliage-laced path of the elevated Promenade Plantée city park, uniquely at home atop a 19th-century railway viaduct

- explore Paris’ only medieval castle, Château de Vincennes, complete with prerequisite keep and sublime 16th-century royal chapel

Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment and Shopping.

You can pick and choose from complete guides and individual chapters, and download them to any device you like.
