This route of 3 hours approximately you will discover a part of the little belt, this way of disused railroad which made the tour of Paris.
Metro Nation we will give we an appointment, to begin our walk through the discovery of the District of Picpus, neighborhood named hostel, located on the way of pilgrimage between the abbeys of Saint Maur and Saint Denis. The establishment, invaded by the chips, would have left a painful memory to its travelers.
Along the street of Picpus, we will focus on the Foundation Eugène Napoleon, built from 1853 to 1857 by the architect of the Cirque d'hiver and the Gare du Nord. Then we stroll the aisles of the cemetery of Picpus, known to be one of four cemeteries to have received the guillotines of the Revolution. This cemetery also houses the tomb of the Marquis de La Fayette, hero of the American war of independence.
We will then reach our access point to the small belt that I propose you to discover in two different ways.
First of all, on the side of the villa of the Bel-Air, a peaceful street of the 12th District accessible by the scenic trails of the lieutenancy and the Birch. Along this street, the small belt is fitted out and transformed into nature trails.
Then, I suggest you appeal to your spirit of adventurer, by initiating a rebound in the lane to the North, where we cross bridges, tunnels and old disused station.
It is possible to tailor the experience according to your wishes. For example, we can ignore the first part concerning Picpus to stay longer on the little belt. Customization is possible, discuss together through messaging on the site.
