Top 20 Bastille - Bercy, Paris vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
Bastille is probably still best known for the storming of its prison on the afternoon of 14th July 1789 during the French Revolution. Nowadays it’s a popular neighbourhood, centred on the Boulevard Beaumarchais that links it to Republique and which is packed full of concept stores, restaurants, bars, food markets, and a youthful spirit. The area is also home to a fabulous modern opera house (opened in 1989) renowned for its fantastic acoustics and world-class productions, and which is home to the Paris National Opera no less. It's got lots to offer in its own right, but it also works well as a base for exploring the charms of nearby Le Marais.
