You’ve gone to the Louvre; you’ve seen the Eiffel Tower; you’ve been to Versailles…at this point you might be asking yourself “What else is there to see?” Paris indeed has a strong cultural history, but its cultural present is alive and flourishing as well! Even if you consider yourself a Paris pro, this tour is guaranteed to show you something new and different – because it changes every single day!
The ever-changing street art scene of Paris is alive and well in the northeastern neighborhood of Belleville, where artists have taken to painting on buildings, walls and windows as they see fit. With your guide you’ll explore this neighborhood, often overlooked due to its perceived “lack of culture”, and see some incredible examples of the latest in street art. See the “graffiti walls,” areas where artists are legally allowed to paint and create without fear of being arrested; discover some of the iconic works of Belleville that are now decades old, as other artists refuse to paint over them out of respect; and visit the Parc de Belleville, a public park that has a surprising view over the city of Paris. Street art is alive and well in Paris; and it’s time for you to see it for yourself!
