My wife and I will be returning to Paris in May. We have been a few times and I am looking for a few different things to experience Paris.
A few years ago we did the Canal St-Martin boat trip and enjoyed it. I remember seeing what can only be described as very real looking neighborhoods. I had know real clue where I was, but it was certainly pleasant and would like to stroll around there on this trip.
My problem is this. I can stroll for miles in just about any metropolitan area - my wife, not so much. If we can walk somewhere and see interesting shops, gardens, etc. she is willing to go along. So therefore, where should I start (maybe a metro exit) to stroll the canal and which direction to get the "best value for the steps"?
And of course, it would not hurt to stop for a good 3-course lunch with wine. BTW, this would be a Saturday or Sunday.
