Here, you will find artistic graffiti murals rather than tree-lined streets, and Middle Eastern food is more prevalent than delicate French pastries. With its vibrant aesthetic, the 20th arrondissement is an interesting place to visit. Take a look at the top things to do here now

Off the beaten track and away from the crowds, the 20th arrondissement is a diverse and large area covering the neighbourhoods of Belleville, Nation, Gambetta and Ménilmontant. It is largely overlooked by visitors, but what the area lacks in major attractions it more than makes up for with its range of unique and interesting things to see and do. The quarter is home to many charming backstreets, hidden pockets of green space and diverse restaurants and cafés. Discover the top things to do in the 20th arrondissement here.
