Visit Paris: Parc de Bercy -Très Grande Bibliothèque
A very nice walk near the center of Paris that goes off the beaten track.
This route starts at Bercy village, crosses the Bercy park, crosses the Seine by the Simone de Beauvoir footbridge to reach the Bibliothèque Nationale de France (BNF), called Très Grande Bibliothèque (TGB). The return journey follows the banks of the Seine and passes the AccorHotels Arena concert hall. A very nice walk that gets you out of historical Paris. During the summer season, the terraces of the restaurants in Bercy village are literally taken by storm.
Use the pedestrian bridges to cross Joseph Kessel Street. The park consists of two parts separated by the road.
