    Belleville, a unique and authentic village in the heart of Paris

    Marion takes you well off the beaten path as she guides you in your exploration of a fascinating and surprising neighborhood enriched by the many cultures of its residents, who live together in perfect harmony.

    Belleville is one of the most cosmopolitan neighborhoods in Paris. Its mix of architectural styles and "village" vibe define its strong and distinct identity. The atmosphere is very friendly and relaxed.

    Marion invites you to join her on a leisurely stroll through Belleville. You'll have the time to look around and soak up the sights, immersed in a very unique pocket of Paris that was once a village and is now a very lively neighborhood.

    A hotspot for Art and Street Art

    Artistic expression is in the DNA of Belleville, which has embraced every form of art for centuries. Originally home to craftsmen, Belleville is now the preferred neighborhood of artists, with over 200 studios. In this part of Paris, street art truly flourishes, sometimes running the length of entire streets. Creativity abounds on every corner, and many contemporary art galleries have also opened in some unexpected places. You'll also see the more or less official "free expression walls" during the walking tour.

    Vineyards on the hill

    Belleville was once a hill covered with vineyards, and grapevines have been replanted there in honor of the days when wine, then called ginguet or piquette, flowed freely, quenching the thirst of the many patrons of cabarets and guingettes of the period. The tradition was not abandoned: the neighborhood is full of specialty wine bars, wine cafes, and other restaurants with superb wine lists. Marion knows where they are and shares them with you.

    Experience urban art and enjoy authentic Paris

    Whether you're traveling with friends or as a family, Marion engages everyone in the conversation. She'll encourage you to talk about the artists' works, reflect on what you see, discard your preconceived notions, see this urban art with a fresh eye, and be open to the responses the art evokes in every member of your group. What moves some might make others laugh, shock them, or leave them scratching their heads... In any case, this experience gets you out of the museum rut and introduces you to a unique and fascinating side of Paris.

    Throughout the tour, Marion will share fun facts about the stories, personalities and work of notable Paris street artists.
