Paris city guide

Paris - Bastille & Eastern Paris (PDF Chapter)

11th Edition Jan 2017

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
  • maps
  • 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
  • transport
  • explore Paris’ only medieval castle, Château de Vincennes, complete with prerequisite keep and sublime 16th-century royal chapel
  • restaurants & bars

Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment and Shopping.
