Start your visit to the north of Paris with a look at the famous Flea Market of Saint-Ouen (Les Puces de Saint-Ouen). Head to the metro station at the Porte-de-Clignancourt, every Saturday, Sunday and Monday, to discover the very first Flea market in the world!

As you leave Tati, you can discover the popular neighbourhood la Goutte d'Or.

Don't miss a look at the Lavoir Moderne Parisien, a popular cultural centre that operates as a 'multi-cultural laboratory' with a variety of concerts and theatrical shows.
