13th Arrondissement, Paris

(3.8/5 based on 55+ 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 robbing my stuff out of the trunk of my car in full avenue d Ivry in front of the parisstore supermarket. Otherwise for the rest I love this neighborhood has the unusual atmosphere.

  • Always the first flooded during flooding of the river Seine, it passes from the origin under the tracks of the Austerlitz station. She was inspired by her mystery a lot of artists, almost ' uninhabited and deserted in a neighborhood so lively, any railway in its early days and now so well lit. Expected.
