Marais Walking Tour

First developed in the 12th century, the neighborhood, whose name means "swamp" in French and once was one, went from being a royal favorite under Henri IV and Louis XIII, to falling into ruin after the French Revolution of 1789. Since its revival in the 1960s, it has shone as a center of Parisian artistic and cultural life. It has also significantly gentrified, evolving from a mostly working-class and immigrant neighborhood to one of the most affluent and prestigious areas in the city. This, of course, is not to the liking of all, but whatever your stance, it's undoubtedly made it a stunning place to walk around, eat, drink, and lounge. The Marais is one of the only areas that preserves the narrow streets and architectural styles of Medieval and Renaissance-era Paris.

It handles customers comfortably, as the clientele arrives in small but regular numbers throughout the day. Lloyd, a former Lockwoodian, describes the harmonious cycle of service that exists between Boot Café and the surrounding bars: “The barmen wake up late in the afternoon, and come in for a coffee before they start work. Then when we finish at the café, the baristas go to the bars and are served by those same barmen”. I like that. Throughout the conversation, I sip slowly on my café crème, crafted on the Marzocco from a Peru-Burundi blend provided by Belleville Brûlerie. The highlight of my visit comes when Lloyd offers me a coconut after I finish my coffee. If there's any doubt left in your mind about the coolness of Boot Café, let it be known that they recently offered a week's worth of free coffee to anyone who could come in and rap an entire Biggie Smalls verse, on the occasion of the BK rapper's birthday.

A Walk along the Paris inner city Railway, abandoned since 1934. I spent my Saturday afternoon, avoiding the Parisian summer crowds and tiptoeing along the train tracks of the “Little Belt” railroad (La Petite Ceinture), a surviving relic of a bygone era, closed since 1934; open for pleasant summer strolls if you look hard enough for a way in … Built in 1862, the Petite Ceinture is a great way to see Paris from a different perspective as the railroad’s bridges peep over the boulevards every few hundred yards.

The tracks run along the backs of artist ateliers which you can’t see from the street. The railroad was a circular route (hence “the little belt”), connecting the main train stations of Paris within the old fortified city walls. This is one of the old stations, Gare de Charonne, which has since been converted into a café and rock’n’roll music venue, La Flèche d’Or. Clic-Clac PARIS * Le 20ème * - Père Lachaise.
