13th Arrondissement, Paris
(3.9/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
The 13th arrondissement of central Paris is primarily a residential and business district in the south-eastern part of the French capital, lying on the Left Bank of the river Seine. It holds several attractions of interest to the traveller that include the recently-completed Bibliothèque Nationale de France (National Library), now part of a major new development of the Paris Rive Gauche district, the second large-scale urbanism project inside the city of Paris. To the west of the PRG along avenue de Tolbiac is the first of these urbanism projects, Les Olympiades, with its raised esplanade and the latest of the Paris Meteor (high-speed metro) stops, Les Olympiades. The southern part of the arrondissement is the "China town" of Paris, one of the biggest in Europe. Using our online itinerary creator, Paris attractions like 13th Arrondissement can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • I was for years in this arrondissement (near Gare d'Austerlitz) and was pleasantly surprised. So many modern buildings, charming modern eateries and cafes ... Take a look at Rue de Chevaleret.. You can even eat in railway wagons.
