Explore Place d'Italie/Quartier Chinois

Exuberant, exotic, and flashy is how the biggest Chinatown in Europe rolls along in this southeastern part of the city. Pagodas mix with high-rises and old-style Parisian architecture in business and residential areas, while true Asian dishes and tempting teas served under paper lanterns satisfy local culinary tastes. Everybody shows up for the big Chinese New Year celebration and parade, with its traditional costumes, music, and dragons, of course.
