La Coulée Verte
Just like the Highline in New York, la Coulée Verte is a former train track turned into a path for pedestrians. It’s a great example of the green spaces in Paris, which range from manicured gardens to more wild, hilltop parks. You’ll see Haussmanian architecture from the late 19th century and modern buildings from the 1920s up close.
This outing is available until July 28, 2017.
We’ll meet at Bastille and see the modern opera house on our way to La Coulée Verte. We’ll walk on the path for about 1 km and walk Le Siffleur des Ballons for drinks. We’ll get back on the path and walk 2 km, and get ice cream at Raimo Glacier, one of the oldest ice cream shops in Paris, at the end.

Hey everybody, I live in Paris and study French translation. Paris is full of history, art, music, instragrammable desserts, wine + terraces, and tourists. I've definitely done the whole tourist thing, and still pop in now and again at impressive monuments, but this past year, I've been more into getting to know my neighborhood and finding places I'd never heard of. I joined an orchestra and am well-versed in finding free events (also a great reason to try something new). The more time I spend here, the more I realize that Paris isn't that complicated. People really do just sit around in cafés and shoot the breeze. The trick is to find the right café.
