June 2013 - A Visit to Petit Mali – An African Neighborhood in Paris
On a Saturday afternoon in mid-April, we took a guided walking tour of the neighborhood called Goutte d’Or that lies to the east of the Château Rouge metro station in the 18th arrondissement of Paris. The walk was organized by Baština, an association that promotes tourisme équitable, a type of tourism where small numbers of travelers meet the locals and interact with them. Read about our visit to this fascinating neighborhood in this month’s Paris Insights newsletter.
Oleg Kononov and Irina Kononova came to Paris from Moscow five years ago. Read about Les Trois Carafes, a restaurant that they opened near the Jardin des Plantes, and the delicious food that is served there in this month's Le Bon Goût.
The city of Paris has prepared the groundwork for the construction of two buildings in the Goutte d'Or neighborhood that will comprise the new locations of the Institute of Islamic Cultures. Learn more in this month's Paris, Past and Present.
One of Discover Paris' most popular walking tours is called Black History in and around the Luxembourg Garden.
Explore the Luxembourg Garden and learn about the histories of such luminaries as Richard Wright, Alexandre Dumas, Victor Séjour, and Henry O. Tanner. Learn about the myth of the black Statue of Liberty, and see the contemporary sculpture that commemorates the abolition of slavery in the French colonies.
The tour, led by a knowledgeable and experienced local guide, involves about 2 hours of walking. Black History in and around the Luxembourg Garden is a regularly-scheduled walking tour.
