13th Arrondissement in Paris

Everything has been said about Paris, City of Lights and the capital of France. You will find below only a few words about the Télécom Paris district, the so-called 13th arrondissement of Paris.

The 13th arrondissement is one of the twenty arrondissements of Paris. It is bordered by the ring road to the south and by the Seine river to the east. The 13th arrondissement is a former working-class district. Today, it is best known for its Asian district, the Butte-aux-Cailles district, as well as for the establishment in the 1990s of the Bibliothèque nationale de France, also known as the François-Mitterrand Library, on the banks of the Seine. The arrondissement also houses the Manufacture nationale des Gobelins.

Very close to Télécom Paris, the Butte aux Cailles district is quite picturesque and deserves a walk. Some touristic walks in the Butte aux Cailles district are available here or here or here, unfortunately written in French. But here the authors describe their ballad proposal in both French and English. Even better, you can find here a walk written directly in English.

The Manufacture nationale des Gobelins, whose history dates back to the 15th century, is in charge of furnishing the official palaces of the Republic. It has occupied the current site since the 17th century (42 Avenue des Gobelins, 13th arrondissement) and can be visited with a guide on reservation (see for example here).
