HD photos of Allee Arthur Rimbaud in Paris
This time we were visiting the 13th Arrondissement in Paris, close to the National Library of France, when we can across the Allee Arthur Rimbaud walkway, and as you will see from these high definition photos this is a split level promenade that runs alongside Quai de la Gare and Quai Francois Mauriac roads and the River Seine.

Although it was very quiet on the Allee Arthur Rimbaud promenade when we took these photos, at certain times of the day you will often see office workers sitting on the concrete side by the plants eating their lunch, and as you can see in this image, there are bins strategically placed to get rid of your rubbish.

This is a photo we took of the signpost for the Allee Arthur Rimbaud, which was eventually inaugurated in 2006 and named after a French poet, and as you can see from the plaque, it also provides the year he was born and died being 1854 - 1891.

We took this HD photo looking down the Allee Arthur Rimbaud towards the Bibliotheque Nationale de France - Bibliotheque Francois-Mitterrand, and although there is a road called Quai de la Gare running alongside this part of the promenade, which would be to the right of the image, it was a quiet tranquil place to take a walk on a nice day.

It was when the area close to the River Seine in the 13th Arrondissement was being redeveloped to provide offices, housing and cultural centres including the Francois-Mitterrand Library, that it was decided a promenade style walkway should be designed, and this photo shows a section of it with its split level and steps going to either side.

Now the Allee Arthur Rimbaud travels along the River Seine in between the Port de la Gare and the Quai Francois Mauriac and the Bibliotheque Francois-Mitterrand is behind this, and in this picture you can see one part of the library which is the tall modern building to the right of the image.

As you can tell from this HD photograph, there are numerous different shrubs, bushes and flowers that have been planted along the Allee Arthur Rimbaud, which provide a lovely line of greenery on what would otherwise be a rather boring concrete path.

Also, as you can see from this photo we took, there are several different sets of steps that allow you to access the different parts and levels of the Allee Arthur Rimbaud as splits into two separate paths.

This is a close up photo we took of one planted section of the Allee Arthur Rimbaud, and as you can no doubt tell, there are numerous different variety of plants and shrubs, including grasses and lots that are happy close to water, which was one of the design features to make it look like a canal towpath.

As we were walking along the Allee Arthur Rimbaud, we took this photo that shows a part of the Bibliotheque Nationale de France - Bibliotheque Francois-Mitterrand next to the walkway, which is a relatively new and ultra modern library that was designed to be like an open book.

This part is of the Allee Arthur Rimbaud is very close to where this promenade travels underneath the Passerelle Simone de Beauvoir, yet as you can see, and again, there are steps leading up to the upper level of the walkway that take you to the footbridge.
