Explore Bastille

The July Column erected to commemorate the revolutionary uprisings that occurred here once upon a time stands at the heart of this neighborhood. Bastille still pumps its electric spirit of yore into the veins of residents and visitors alike. Stroll through the artful union of narrow streets and broad promenades to munch on a fresh confectionery from one of the bakeries; shop 'til you drop in the high-end fashion boutiques that only Paris can have, then ending the night at a smooth jazz or lively dance clubs that this area is known for. Bastille never disappoints.
