Nature
“If you want to see Paris from above, that's where you want to go :) I'm lucky to live very close by to the Coulée Verte. It's "our" Highline (yes, much different from the one in New York, but still a Highline!). I won't say much, except that it's a must-do if you like to walk, and want to escape from the noise of Paris' ground 0.”

Opera House
“The modern architecture of the Opéra Bastille cuts an imposing figure on the Place de la Bastille at the 11th arrondissement’s southwest corner. Inaugurated just over 25 years ago in 1989, the opera house was created to showcase popular, modern works. Nowadays, the Opéra Bastille boasts a varied program featuring operas and ballets, as well as the occasional symphony concert.”

Its 52 metre high donjon is the highest in Europe and provides breathtaking views of Paris.

Shopping Plaza
“Not a walking distance, but more of a tip for the non-parisians! Refurbished in the 1990, this small wine warehouses area is worth to go and spend an evening for a glass of wine or light diner. And if you feel like, walk back to the flat, 35 min along the river La seine and cross the pedestrian bridge Simone-de-Beauvoir, you will be facing the French National Library, iconic building by architect Dominique Perrault.”
