The place of Italy

Heart of the 13e The Place d'Italie is a very lively place with Italie 2, located in the heart of the Parisian district and at the intersection of the metro and bus networks. This modern shopping centre is one of the most popular in the capital with over 130 shops and restaurants, and soon two new theatres open to all disciplines.
Place d'Italie is also a strategic place to reach the main Parisian places. It is served by metro lines 5, 6 and 7 which take you directly to Gare d'Austerlitz, Bastille, République, Gare de l'Est and Gare du Nord, République, Bercy, Nation, Denfert-Rochereau, Montparnasse, Trocadéro, Champs, Elysées, Châtelet, Musée du Louvre, Opéra, Chaussée d'Antin...
The hotel is 200 metres from the Place d'Italie on foot.

Avenue des Gobelins

Next to the hotel, the Avenue des Gobelins, which links the Place d'Italie to the Latin Quarter, has some remarkable buildings and numerous cinemas. Ideal for strolling with its rows of trees, it is home to the famous Gobelins Tapestry Factory and welcoming café terraces. This avenue comes from the old extension, south of the Bièvre, of the old rue Mouffetard, itself an old section of the Roman way, leading formerly from Lutetia to Italy. The Avenue des Gobelins, 150 m from the hotel, is today a commercial artery that leads from the Place d'Italie to the Latin Quarter. Lined with trees and cafés, it is a meeting place for film buffs and walkers. With its many cinemas and its world-famous Manufacture, the Avenue des Gobelins is a lively place where it is good to be.

La Butte aux Cailles

This little piece of countryside in Paris has retained its village atmosphere. To walk in Butte aux Cailles is above all to enjoy its peaceful streets, its small houses, its silence and its greenery. For street art lovers, it is also one of the favorite places of expression for all graffiti artists.
Located between boulevard Auguste Blanqui, rue Bobillot, rue de Tolbiac and rue Vergniaud, in the 13th arrondissement of Paris, the Butte aux Cailles owes its name to Pierre Caille, who bought a vineyard overlooking the Bièvre in the 16th century. This district, without Haussmannian buildings or large avenues, has retained its village soul. One comes here to stroll happily and cheerfully through the small streets and semi-pedestrian passages, gently sloping, where charming little houses with lovely gardens are lined up: passage Barrault, passage Sigault, passage Boiton, rue Daviel where at n°10 you will find "La Petite Alsace", a former workers' housing estate opened in 1913, made up of some forty small terraced houses with pointed roofs organised around charming terraces, dense trees and flowery lawns that are reminiscent of the countryside.
