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.

  • Only inquisitive travelers congregate here. District Paris China secret. McDonald's is not here, for a lot of cheap Asian food. So I bite.

  • While I was on the other side of the Seine where we alojabamos, near the Gare de Lyon, it was little that met: Charles de Gaulle, of Austerlitz and the homonymous viaduct bridge. The rive gauche also saw Les Docks, Gare de Austerlitz and modernized building of the railway company "Chemin de fer d' Orléans", opposite the garden des Plantes. Other attractions are the François Mitterrand library and plaza Italy, not we met.
