    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

    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.
