The canal, with the locks, is very pretty. It is surrounded by a number of restaurants and shops. Worth a visit IF you're nearby.

It was wonderful to see the completion of the huge park. The 7-8 locks taken to get through the canal is exciting, and the views on board are wonderful. The commentary is done in French and English, although the English is difficult to understand -...More

On a hot sunny afternoon there can’t be anywhere better in Paris to sit with a drink and watch people go by. I can imagine that on a cold day It could be very quiet, and perhaps also much less welcoming in the evenings. We...More

Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point
of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris.
Watch boats travel along the canal while lovers and
friends take in the atmosphere from the banks or the
bridges. Evenings see hoards fill the embankments to
drink wine and enjoy good company. The colder days
lead people to hipster bars, cozy restaurants, and
concert spaces. Those who are more adventurous may
