    District of Eastern Paris, 20th district, multiracial and multicultural. All kinds of shops. Dirty streets. Sense of security in all ways. The best, the view of Paris from the top of the Parc de Belleville

    Belleville is a former village which dates back to ancient times, called Savies, occupied by peoples under the Merovingians. Belleville Hill is a hill located to the North East of the Valley of the Seine, which benefits some. The presence of abundant water has always been an asset to Belleville, still today. Belleville name in the 18th century and the town takes shape, then outside the walls of Paris. At the time of the wall of the farmers-General, in 1784, which passes through current boulevard Belleville, which requires a paid tariffs for commodities entering Paris, Belleville is so popular. , Because it is still "in the country", has shops and drinking establishments benefiting from the air of places less polluted than in Paris and duty-free zone. Many Parisians come here for fun. This area is then occupied by vineyards, well oriented, Mills who take advantage of the wind in altitude, the bourgeois houses and taverns and guinguettes, distractions. Sources are captured to power places in water. The current Belleville Park occupies these spaces, with still the presence of vineyards, to the memory of places. This large park is the green lung of the area with shaded, of the lawns and facilities, very nice spaces. Many street names still testify to the former occupation of the places with streets; waterfalls, pond for water, Envierges that remind of the vines, Ramponeau that reminds a tavern of the same name, the village of Belleville in the 19 th century etc, so has housing, a church that has the name of St. Jean Baptiste de Belleville, and which dates from 1854. She has a holiday spot, located in the southern part of the 19 th arrondissement close and appears in 1836, and small industries that take advantage of the space available and who will bring a population of workers, occupying substandard housing. Belleville is integrated into the Paris again, after the creation of the 20 arrondissements, under Napoleon III in 1860 and made part part of the 19 th and the 20 th arrondissement. . As time, Belleville is urbanizing, not always in a structured way, which will involve then to shoot down many old neighborhoods by the end of the 20 th century to 1960. These operations generate a lot of buildings "concrete block" that we see today. However some neighborhoods have retained a friendly look with small houses with garden, in the part East of Belleville Park upwards of Ménilmontant. Today this area is a meeting pot of populations of various origins and more Parisians, from Asia, North Africa and the West, India, etc. Some streets are bustling and even plugged notably around the park with cafes with terrace, restaurants and cabarets, for example Street the Envierges and also around the boulevards. Some streets are still places of crime such as the rue Ramponeau, between the metro stations "Crowns" and "Belleville". The street of Belleville in its lower part, from the Boulevard of the same name, is very popular with cafes and restaurants of kitchen from North Africa and Asia, as well as local shops. The street of the Pyrenees structure the district from West to East and date of Napoleon III, she is very lively and shopping. To be clear, I'm priori attracted not by this neighborhood but, I gradually learned to know him better by taking the trouble to walk there. My favorite places are the Park and the part located to the East of the Park to the top of the access by metro Ménilmontant is easy with a line 2 on the boulevards of Belleville and Ménilmontant with stations: "Belleville", "Crowns" and "Ménilmontant" then the street of Belleville has stations of metro line no. 11 with "Pyrénées" and "Jordan"and later"Place holiday" lines 7B and 11

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
