    The Canal Saint-Martin is a great place to take a walk - With the Port de l’Arsennal at the south end which also makes for a quiet yet calming area to people watch or enjoy the views like in the photo Read more

    Formerly a transportation water way, today Canal Saint Martin is a nice strech in Paris to hang out and to relax. Next to sitting in numeros cafes along the water, on sunny days people have pic-nics

    Cute views- great for a stroll or run. Nice little restaurant off Lucien Sampaix and of course drinks, food and vibes down at Comptoir!

    All in all it is beautiful and filmographically charged obviously... But... With all the traffic passing by (except on Sundays) it's not that cosy of a place to picnic... Just sayin'...

    Perfect place to while away a lovely summer's day in Paris. Get some good bread, some cheese, a good book and just sit by the canal.

    This is the Dolores Park of Paris in that on a warm afternoon or evening, it seems like all of Paris is picnicking and drinking on the banks of the canal.
