Hidden Paris 1

image

Last week we were in Paris, near the Gare de Lyon (Lyon Station), and noticed this old railway viaduct. You could easily ignore it, thinking that it was just a railway line. But if you go up the stairs, you find that it has been turned into a leafy walking path. It is known as the Coulee Verte Rene Dumont and runs for 4.5km from near the Place de La Bastille to near the Bois (Woods) de Vincennes.
