THE HILLS: Belleville & Menilmontant
A back roads visit into the old working class neighborhoods of Belleville and Menilmontant starts outside line 3 metro stop Gambetta (Orfilia Exit #?) at the renowned Pere Lachaise cemetery (where hundreds of famous creatives are buried), passes through the once country villages tracing their old rhythm and soul (as expressed in Edith Piaf's timbre and on screen in the The Red Balloon) and maximizes the possibilities of discovery in present day lively street scenes, ending in an ethnically Chinese community full of places to eat and drink.
DISTRICTS: 19, 20
