Recently, trying to do a little something different and wanting to walk around parts of Paris I’m not very familiar with, I decided to try a Street Art Tour and picked this one:http://alternativeparis.org/ . I’m always finding interesting street art around Paris-along with grafitti which I don’t like-so it was fun to walk around the Belleville, Oberkampf and Menilmontant areas and see some new things. We met our leader, Demian, a nice guy from England, at the Parmentier metro stop and set off from there.
A quick video taken during the tour.
So, the tour was fun and I’ve posted only a few of the many street art that we saw. It required a lot of walking, some of it uphill, so you have to be in fairly good shape to do the tour. I’m sure I was the oldest person on the tour as it is something young people are interested in as a rule but I found this whole other way of life interesting to hear about and see.
