From the beauty of Hotel de Ville to the abrupt reality of Saint Denis
This time we will begin with the Hotel de Ville area and work our way up to Saint Denis.
This is a walk I particularly enjoy, for it begins in overcrowded touristy areas, moving through artsy sites while check out some galleries and castles from the Middle Ages and finally it changes its course to a working-class neighborhood. .
If you are looking to find a different side of Paris, this is a must. You will see how 12th century buildings found a way to inhabit a 21st century's reality.
