Take a stroll full of Parisian delight
The Green Corridor Walk is not a well-known Parisian landmark. It connects the Bastille neighborhood with both the Golden and Vincennes gates. 4.5km long and 7 meters above the ground, it runs over a former railway line and offers walkers a magnificent panoramic view of the city.
