Residential neighborhood in the 13th, used to be undiscovered, now gentrified. Some pleasant neighborhood cafes and restaurants. Some street art. But best of all are the many pleasant quiet streets to explore.

Place d'Italie / Quartier Asiatique
Far off the beaten path, this part of Paris is a
forgotten gem worth exploring. Avenue d’Ivry houses
