Across Paris (North-South)

From Porte de la Villette to Parc Montsouris

21km

Paris is a magnificent city, but it is sometimes difficult to realize it when you travel through it by car or metro. The best way to discover the French capital is to cross it on foot. While walking, you have time to observe the details, soak up the atmosphere and meet people. We discover neighborhoods that we wouldn't have seen otherwise, and we have the opportunity to chat with the residents. We pass through lively neighborhoods, peaceful streets, and green parks. We see historical monuments, modern buildings, and works of art.

The trail runs alongside the metro and RER railway tracks, as well as the banks of the Seine. It also crosses the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont, a romantic park designed in the 19th century. The path passes through the Parc de la Butte-aux-Cailles, a picturesque neighborhood with colorful houses, and then through the Parc Montsouris, a vast landscaped park created in the 19th century.
At the Porte de la Villette, the trail passes through the Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie, a major cultural and scientific complex. In the Butte-aux-Cailles neighborhood, the trail runs along the former line of fortifications of Paris, built in the 18th century. In the Parc Montsouris, the trail passes by the Château de Montsouris, a 19th-century chateau that now houses a scientific research center.
