- Stretching over 5km from the Square Flemaître (Rue du Faubourg du Temple) to the Rue Lafayette and the charming pool of La Villette, this canal enables boats to take a shortcut between the loops of the Seine. Since its creation in 1825, the canal has been made famous by authors and film directors. Tourists in Paris love sitting on the banks to watch the barges go by. Not to be missed!
