    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

    Come here to have a picnic on a sunny day. Wonder around and visit the boutiques or have lunch in one of the great restaurants in the area.

    This place is really nice! It's so relaxing to walk by or sit by the water during the summer! Great place to hang out with some friends!

    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.

    Grab baked goods here first (pain au chocolat) and eat them on a bench alongside the canal.

    Fetch a pizza (or a balloon, they'll deliver the pizza) from Pink Flamingo on 67 Rue Bichat and come eat by the canal.

    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

    Grab a Paris hire bike and ride along the canal to La Villette. Stop to watch the boats pass through the locks.
