Shopped, ate and wandered in a beautiful park like it was miles from Paris. Village atmosphere but also vibrant Chinatown

One of the traditional workers' areas of Paris, now full of the world as this is an immigrant area. So lots of interesting affordable restaurants and cafes and street markets. Interesting and fun.

We stayed in Belleville on the recommendation of a Parisian friend, and we were not disappointed! It's a lively but cool area with lots of bars, restaurants and brunch places. To get a non-tourist perspective of Paris, definitely visit Belleville.

Great place! Nice to roam about ideally and just sit and relax with some food. It is a place where one sees different cultures present in Paris. Do visit!

Being a street art photographer allows me to check out neighborhoods that regular tourists may never visit because there are no monuments, or such neighborhoods are considered 'undesirable'. My sole mission in going to Belleville was to seek out a few very specific works of...More

After you've seen just about everything else in Paris, and if you are interested in digging deeper, do visit Belleville. Historically important residence of Paris' working class, important during the Commune period, now home to many immigrants, on the way to gentrification. Lots of affordable...More

So. Belleville was perfect for my trip. Great food. Authentic experience. English speakers everywhere. Safety? Let me put it like this. I counted more than 30 soldiers with assault rifles between my hotel and the stations on Boulevard De Belleville. That doesn't include the Police....More

Belleville / Pere Lachaise
At the eastern edge of Paris lies Belleville / Père
Lachaise, an understated wonderland of local
treasures. Alongside the world-famous cemetery,
family-owned delicatessens and cafés nestle between
local stores and establishments. The richness of the
population here has created a little Chinatown of
Asian restaurants, and the area comes to life at night
by a funky underground scene. Façades change from one
