View date


Today, after a period of time where this neighborhood was considered as the Paris of gangsters and prostitutes or music shops, it became gentrified and turned into one of Paris’ trendy neighborhood for gastronomy gathering flourishing restaurants and cocktail bars. Yet, the Nouvelle Athènes remained the same, calm and secret, luxurious and intellectual, neither snob nor flashy. This is why the tour will start by explaining to you the contrasts of the neighborhood which keep changing, and you will gradually enter in the Nouvelle Athènes.

The tour will end in front of the Notre Dame de Lorette Church, located next to the subway.
