Up and Down - The Viaduc des Arts
The Viaduc des arts (the "Arts arches") follows a railway dating back from the second Empire - at about mid-Nineteenth Century. On its roof, you'll find the pedestrian zone known as "Coulée Verte " or "Promenade plantée", which goes through the 12th district up to Vincennes. Start your visit at the corner of Daumesnil and Ledru-Rollin avenues. You'll enjoy walking alongside hazel trees, weeping willows, cherry blossoms and bushes of roses.
Take a look at the traffic from 7 meters up: aren't you lucky? The walk is away from the bustle. Under the Promenade, the arches welcome craftsmen workshops. Check the VIA gallery, dedicated to top-notch contemporary design from lights to furniture. The Petit musée de l'argenterie (the Silversmith's Museum) will unveil to your attention a choice of homeware, from antique place settings to wine tasting-cups or snuffboxes.
Enjoy a late brunch at Café Jardin l'Arrosoir. Its "rural" setting coupled with a beautiful terrace and a nice mezzanine offer numerous seating options for a nice meal. You can also try the Viaduc Café, with its popular terrace and its good menu.
