To explore the different facets of Paris a visit to one of the multi-ethnic neighbourhoods like Belleville should be a must. A district of Paris full of diverse cultures and other surprises in its side alleys.
Prior to my short trip to Paris I thought I could ask some Parisian Lomographers if they would share some insider tips with me. I was particularly interested in the non-typical-tourists-sightseeing-places. One of the kind lomographers was adbigmilk who recommended Belleville to me.
Leaving the Metrostation you can already see a little Chinatown with lots of Chinese restaurants. Every few steps you hear people speaking different languages and come across different cultures. What really impressed us was the Rue Dénoyez, a little side alley with little stores, galleries and walls covered with artistic graffiti. We were able to watch some people designing plant pots which should decorate the street afterwards.
Unfortunately we couldn’t stay that long in Belleville because our TO-VISIT list was still long and our time short. But it was definitely worth the visit and I can only recommend it. So if you’re visiting Paris and you’re still hungry for other interesting motives after you’ve seen the nostalgic and historic sides of Paris. My tip: Visit Belleville and spend at least a few hours there!
