Full description
Discover Belleville, simply the most famous street art neighborhood in Paris, with the assistance of a guide who has a minimum of 6 years’ experience in street art tours. Explore the area that has been an artists’ destination since the early 1980s when many poor artists moved to live in squats that over the years turned into art galleries, studios, and art communities.

Share in an intimate history of how the neighborhood and its street art came to be as they are today. See the area that has been a favorite for many French artists such as Nemo, Jérôme Mesnager, and Philippe Herard and for associations including Art Azoi and Le M.U.R. that often bring international artists to the scene. The artistic community makes this area vibrant and locals are often invited to participate in activities not only in making art, but also in poetry and gardening, too.

Learn about the history of street art in Paris and hopefully you will start to recognize some of the most active street artists during the rest of your stay in the city. Since Belleville is the second largest hill in Paris, you’ll also have a wonderful view Paris. Every Saturday, the tour finishes with a live performance and sometimes even a free drink to inaugurate the new wall in the area.
