What you’ll do

You’ll fall in love with the tree-lined walkways and wrought iron footbridges of Canal Saint-Martin as you spend a few hours with your host, perusing its banks and exploring the surrounding neighborhoods. Discover what a truly Parisian neighborhood looks like as you join the city’s bohemians, students, philosophers, fashionistas, flaneurs and of course, local residents, on the banks of this famous canal. You could picnic and people-watch, or visit a subterranean wine bar where you can enjoy tapas style plates accompanied by organic French wine. Here, the backstreets and canal walls are filled with more provocative street art, unique boutiques and trendy concept stores than you could possibly wish for. With your host by your side, you could pretend it’s just another day in Paris, and that you’re basking in the sunlight with your friends, nonplussed, unphased and of course, tres sophisticated, as you are. Steal a slice of Parisian life on the lazy banks of Saint-Martin.

Our Picks

  • Join your host and explore Canal Saint-Martin and its surrounding neighborhoods

  • Put together a makeshift picnic (with a bottle of wine) and enjoy it sitting on the banks of the canal, in true local style!

  • Peruse the trendy boutiques and unique concept stores, or simply relax in a bistro and soak up the atmosphere

  • Discover the history of these 19th century waterways as you stroll over the wrought iron bridges and along the banks

  • Soak up the unique atmosphere and laid back attitude of this area as you join the groups of locals who congregate here, from bohemians to philosophers
