Paris - Bastille & Eastern Paris (Chapter)
This is the Bastille & Eastern Paris chapter from Lonely Planet’s Paris guidebook.
Bastille isn’t known for its sights, but it’s nonetheless a fascinating area to explore on foot. As it’s still authentically residential in most parts, a wander will give you a taste of everyday life in one of Paris’ most dynamic neighbourhoods.
- take in a backstage tour and opera, ballet or concert recital at the modern monolith of Opéra Bastille, on the landmark square where revolutionaries stormed the Bastille in 1789
- join Parisians for a weekend jog or stroll along the foliage-laced path of the elevated Promenade Plantée city park, uniquely at home atop a 19th-century railway viaduct
- explore Paris’ only medieval castle, Château de Vincennes, complete with prerequisite keep and sublime 16th-century royal chapel
- restaurants & bars
