“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
Canal St-Martin is located in northeast of Paris, and connects the Canal de l'Ourcq to the river Seine. In the film Amélie, the title character skips stones here. The canal has become trendy in recent years, with several restaurants and bars opening overlooking the water. Get your drinks in a to-go cup so you can sip your drink while dangling your legs over the edge of the canal. During the day, the canal offers picturesque views, and it's a lovely place to wander outside the city bustle.
