Discovery of the little belt in Paris.

An easy and not very long walk (less than 2 kilometers) to discover the little belt in the 15th arrondissement of Paris.

The little belt (petite ceinture) is a former railroad turned into a small park. The tour can start at the Balard subway station, it's not very difficult to find the entrance, then simply follow the path of railway. The designers have decided to leave the little belt in a natural state to make a sort of biological reserve in the heart of the city.
