The most colourful street in Paris! 😍
This charming street is located in the 12th arrondissement, between Rue de Lyon and Rue de Bercy. It's a little street, 144 metres long, that is pedestrianised and cobblestoned and gives visitors the impression that they have left Paris behind. There are no Haussmann style buildings here, only unquestionably charming little houses. Their particularity is that the façades are mainly in gentle pastel colours. From the green at number 21 to the blue at 22, the purple at 23, the yellow at 24, the pink at 30… And when the colours are not attracting your eye, it will be drawn to thetrompes l’œil that decorate the façades, with a cat hunting delicately painted birds or a lilac that surrounds an entrance. Animals of the feline variety (real ones) must think themselves in the countryside among the flower pots that are lined up outside the houses and visitors will have a similar feeling over the course of this short, but delightful stroll.

The Promenade Plantée is a elevated linear park built on the former tracks of the Vincennes railway line, which beginning in 1859 linked the Bastille station to Verneuil-l'Étang, passing through Vincennes. It ceased operation in 1969; part of the line beyond Vincennes was integrated into Line A of the RER, while the Paris-Vincennes section was completely abandoned. The Promenade plantée is an extensive green belt designed by the landscape architect Jacques Vergely and architect Philippe Mathieux. This parkway was inaugurated in 1993 and the only elevated park in the world for some years.

Beginning just east of the Opéra Bastille with the elevated Viaduc des Arts, it follows a 4.7 km path eastward that ends at a spiral staircase leading to the boulevard Périphérique beltway. At its west end near the Bastille, the parkway rises 10 m above the surrounding area and forms the Viaduc des Arts, over a line of shops featuring high quality and expensive arts and crafts. The parkway intersects the Jardin de Reuilly near rue Montgallet and descends to street level. At that point, it becomes a grassy mall and then follows the old railway direction below street level towards the east, passing through several tunnels. As it reaches rue du Sahel, it splits, with one portion continuing to the beltway, and the other terminating in the square Charles-Péguy along the former path of a branch line that once linked to the Petite Ceinture railway.
