Discover a side of Paris that most tourists never see. Frederic of TheWaysBeyond takes you on a walking tour you of his old neighborhood, La Goutte d’Or, one of Paris’s most authentic multi-cultural melting pots. Here, Parisians of dozens of different nationalities come together to share their traditions, cultures, and cuisines.

In recent years, social and urban planning initiatives have shaken up this area of the 18th Arrondissement, and many young creatives now flock to the ‘Drop of Gold’ district for the reasonable rents and the mixed and modern vibe.

Frederic, a former inhabitant of the neighborhood, will be your personal guide to La Goutte d’Or, sharing with you stories of how the area has evolved. You’ll visit the largest open-air African market outside the African continent, learn more about the diversity of Paris, and stop by a workshop where you can recycle orphaned socks!
