Recommendable for people who like history and contact with some nature, since there are some nice gardens in there. But, at the same time, it doesn't really call the attention, didn't find anything special about it.

A landmark of Paris. A nice place to visit, and easy accessible by public transport. You can take some nice photos, but that's mainly it.

We were fortunate to live in Paris during business training. The Place de Nation was our landmark to find our tiny apartment. Fantastic experience and opportunity to work, learn and play.

We stayed at Pavilion Nation. Great little hotel, near shops and restaurants and bars! Not very busy as far as crowds. We loved the local feel of this neighborhood. Easy access to metro so you can get all over Paris from here.

Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise
lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and
impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small
parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy
Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois
de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on
its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to
this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make
