    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'...

    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

    This is a fun neighborhood for a low-key afternoon of strolling and shopping. There’s also a pleasingly chilled-out nightlife scene (focused at the celeb-beloved Hôtel du Nord) worth checking out... Read more · October 31, 2011

    En iyisi pazar günü gitmek. Zaten her yer kapalı, caddelerde araçta yok. Komple kanal çevresini gezersiniz. 👍🏼

    Le canal Saint-Martin sert essentiellement au transport de passagers pour des croisières touristiques et peu pour le transport de marchandises. Il est ouvert 363 jours par an.
