Since my arrival in Paris, I immediately wanted to explore the city. The capital is full of many small secret corners, and that gives us the opportunity to wander in less busy streets, such as the Rue des Thermopyles, the Cité Durmar, or the maze of alleys in the 20th arrondissement.

All these alleyways and passages allow us to discover a new Paris. A secret Paris.

When I’m walking in one of these alleyways, I quickly forget about the stress of the city. For a moment, I feel like being in the countryside, as I am seeing all these colorful houses and the streets covered by nature.

I definitely recommend you to explore all these secret back streets, it’s a great way to discover Paris in a different way.
