The 10th arrondissement is lucky to have such a strategic location in Paris: between the Grands Boulevards and Place de la République, not far from the Bastille and Belleville districts. This rather central arrondissement provides convenient access to many of the major places in the capital in just a short metro ride.
What to do in the 10th arrondissement ?
There are not a lot of monuments to visit in the 10th arrondissement of Paris. It is rather a place where people like go out, take walks, etc. However, you will notice two small triumphal arches, which are the remains of the former gates of Paris: Porte Saint-Denis and Porte Saint-Martin (near the 3rd arrondissement).
If you are lucky enough to have nice weather, a cruise along Saint Martin Canal is a must! It’s always great to find and take a breath of fresh air in the city. At night, groups of friends meet here for a “potluck” aperitif between rounds of pétanque. You will especially enjoy the beautiful view of sunset from the Quai de Valmy or Quai de Jemmapes.
