From Porte Maillot to Porte Doree


Paris is a magnificent city, but it is sometimes difficult to realize it when you travel through it by car or metro. The best way to discover the French capital is to cross it on foot. While walking, you have time to observe the details, soak up the atmosphere and meet people. We discover neighborhoods that we wouldn't have seen otherwise, and we have the opportunity to chat with the residents. We pass through lively neighborhoods, peaceful streets, and green parks. We see historical monuments, modern buildings, and works of art.
