11 a.m. - Plant Power

Rise above it all and surround yourself with an oasis of calm on the Promenade Plantée. This once-abandoned railway track is now a 4.5 kilometre-long elevated walking track from Bastille to the Bois due Vincennes. Created in 1988, you can expect to get up close and personal with the urban and the wild as you pass by buildings and bats (the Pipistrelle hangs out here). Walk amidst the wild poppies, cherry trees and wrought-iron balconies, take in the great views over the roof-tops, and savour the urban jungle.
