  Things to doSurely the most original way to explore eastern Paris between Bastille and the Bois de Vincennes – overhead and underground, on viaduct footbridges and in tunnel trenches.
Philippe Mathieux and Jacques Vergely designed this trail in 1988, on the tracks that took trains from Bastille to Varenne-Saint-Maur from 1859 to 1969 when the line was abandoned and replaced with a sprinkling of gardens.
The City of Paris embarked on a vast refurbishing project, revamping this viaduct’s 71 arcades under the Promenade Plantée, in 1989.
