Welcome to my Canals of Paris website, devoted to the section of Paris which I learned to love during my year-long stay in 2000-2001, followed by many visits in the years after. I have begun the process of putting online my photos, maps and descriptions of this part of the city, a process that will never be completed. Please check back occasionally for new additions.

Thanks for visiting ....Tom Sommers

The major waterway in Paris is of course the river Seine. But there are also three canals that are owned and managed by Ville de Paris, a situation unique in France. Each canal is very different from the others:

Canal St Martin

Canal St Denis

Canal de l'Ourcq
