  Nature/Leisurely walks : + Culture : + Shopping : + 

The 10th arrondissement is a rather grey and gloomy area. Animation is not its main asset. You will go through it, if you come by train. Indeed, the 10th arrondissement has two stations: the Gare du Nord and the Gare de l'Est. Don't be surprised if you hear the sound of trains!

Not far from these stations is the Canal St Martin which crosses the 10th arrondissement, and which will allow you to go on walks alongside the barges.

However, you can still admire the Place de la République on which you will find a building retracing, as its name indicates, the history of the French republic over a century.

Routes for everyone :

for lovers of leisurely walks :

Even for leisurely walks, the 10th arrondissement will only be a short escapade. True - you can wander calmly along the Canal St Martin, on the Quais de Valmy, to admire the locks, relax among the greengrocers' stalls of the Marché St Quentin on leaving Gare de l'Est, but the most attractive place for a leisurely stroll is still the Passage Brady where you will be guided by the fragrances of oriental cuisine.

for lovers of culture :

With the exception of the Place de la République decorated with its colossal bronze building topped by the statue of the republic, this arrondissement is not of notable cultural interest.

for lovers of shopping :

As everywhere in the capital, there are numerous boutiques in the streets, but the speciality of the 10th arrondissement is luxury china. These stores are located in the Rue de Paradis, which is moreover very pleasant, and which runs alongside the Hôpital St Lazare.

To remember : La Gare de l'Est / La Gare du Nord / La Place de la République / Le Canal St Martin.
