Port de l'Arsenal

Métro: Bastille ( line 1, 5 or 8)
Address: 11 bd Bastille, 75012 Paris
Cost: Free

Part of the Canal Saint Martin, le port de l'Arsenal has the flavor of a little Parisian get away. In the 16th century, it was actually part of the ramparts and the fort that protected the walls of Paris; hence its name: Arsenal. During the revolution it was dug into a pond, and later became part of the project of the Canal Saint Martin.

Today, it is a marina that brings you out of the busy streets of Paris. Along the dock, you will also find the gardens with play areas for the kiddos!
