Paris - Le Marais, Ménilmontant & Belleville (Chapter)
This is the Le Marais, Ménilmontant & Belleville chapter from Lonely Planet’s Paris guidebook.
Funky bars and restaurants, emerging designers’ boutiques and the city’s thriving gay and Jewish communities all squeeze into Le Marais’ warren of narrow medieval laneways. Neighbouring Ménilmontant has some of the city’s hippest nightlife and Belleville is an up-and-coming hotspot.
