    Port de l'Arsenal - Céline & Jesse's Journey

    Port de l'Arsenal south of Place de la Bastille

    After their walk along the Promenade Plantee in the movie Before Sunset, Celine & Jesse pick up a Canauxrama at Port de l'Arsenal for their journey up the Seine. This is where it gets tricky as it appears they get off somewhere at the Port Henri IV.

    Click HERE to continue the journey to the disembarkation point of the Port Henri IV.

    Promenade Plantée - Céline & Jesse's Journey

    by BeatChick Updated Apr 22, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The next jump in Before Sunset involves going from Le Pure Cafe to la Promenade Plantée & Viaduc des Arts in the 12th arrondissement. Formerly a railway line, this long train tracks area has been converted into a series of shops below with a long narrow park running atop. A fantastic idea that NYC is in the process of putting to use.

    To easily traverse from Le Pure Cafe to the Promenade Plantee, walk back down Rue Faidherbe to hop back onto the line 8 Metro at the Faidherbe-Chaligny stop, direction Creteil-Prefecture. Travel 3 stops to the Daumesnil stop where you'll switch lines to catch line 6 to the Bel-Air stop (direction Nation). This stop provides direct access to le Promenade Plantee which you may walk west all the way to Place de la Bastille. The trip from Le Pure Cafe to the Promenade Plantee is approximately 20 minutes. The walk from the Bel-Air stop to Place de la Bastille is roughly a 40-minute walk dependent upon your pace.

    Click HERE to continue the journey to the Port de l'Arsenal where they embark onto a Canauxrama bateau.

    Le Pure Cafe

    After their jaunt in the Marais in the film Before Sunset, Jesse & Celine take a quick jump to Le Pure Café in the 11th arrondissement (near Place de la Bastille). To get there quickly, from Rue St-Paul take a right onto rue St-Antoine, walk about 10 minutes to Metro Bastille, hop on line 8 direction Creteil Prefecture, get off 2 stops later at the Faidherbe-Chaligny stop. Walk north 2 long blocks along Rue Faidherbe, take a right onto Rue Jean Mace. You'll find the cafe at the intersection of rue Jean Mace & Impasse Franchemont. The address is 14 rue Jean Macé. Walking & using the Metro yields another 20-minute trip.

    Click HERE to continue the journey on the Promenade Plantée/Viaduc des Arts.

    Click HERE to go back to Rue Charlemagne & Rue Eginhard.

    "Before Sunset"

    by CALSF Written May 30, 2005

    Rue Galande from

    I viewed both "Before Sunset" and it's prequel "Before Sunrise" as have many here I'm sure. Both movies tell the tale of French Celine and American Jesse finding each other by chance on a train ("Before Sunrise") and again in a Paris bookstore ("Before Sunset"). These two films are a couple of my favorite all-time movies.

    One of the joys of watching "Before Sunset" is getting to see Paris again and again! There are lots of landmarks in the film and some that are ordinary yet you know that you probably have walked the same streets and seen the same sights before as the two characters have done.

    Celine and Jesse took a walk from the Shakespeare & Co. bookstore to the rue Galande nearby. It's a short curved medieval street that's in the Latin Qtr.
