Canal St. Martin
Stretching for almost 5km, Canal St. Martin is a Parisian canal that eventually ends up in the River Seine. Ideal for exploring alongside on foot, or on the water in a canal boat, the Canal St. Martin is a definite for any intrepid explorer of Paris.
Book a boat tour, or go it alone by foot, either way, you’ll be able to take in the glorious sites. If you’re a bridge enthusiast, you’ll love it here, with plenty of them to pass under, and locks to explore. There are numerous canal side cafés and restaurants for a stop off, too.
What’s remarkable about this canal is that around half of it is actually covered over to make way for squares and public spaces. So you may never know what’s going on above you!
We hope you can see, that whilst the romantics among us will always have something dreamy to do or see in Paris, the City of Love isn’t just about lovers.
There’s so much culture, excitement, activity and history to explore and experience. So much, that you’ll definitely need to plan a return city break to fit everything in. Oui oui!
