There is a walking path from Vincennes all the way to Bastille, along the boulevard Daumesnil, running three miles. There is a portion of this beautiful path that will take your breath away. The Promenade Plantee, the planted walkway is the only elevated park in the world and something very few tourists get to see. This is the Aristocats Paris, with the flowers and the mansard rooftops. You can come up here with a bottle of wine and a picnic lunch and from this flowered paradise, you will see Paris in a different light.
