If you’re in need of an antidote to the clamor and jostle of your fellow tourists, you’ll find rejuvenation and serenity on Canal Saint-Martin.
Built under Napoleon’s rule to provide Paris with fresh water and food, the Canal St. Martin attracts a young and eclectic crowd of Parisians and internationals, and with them trendy restaurants and bars.
You may recognize Canal St.-Martin from the blockbuster French film Amélie. The main character, Amélie, spends time walking along the canal’s placid waters, with heart-achingly charming green bridges spanning the background. The sidewalk along the canal is wide and borders the waterway itself, making a perfect place for picnics and romantic moments.
