Italie 13 (0.26 km)

Italie 13 (or Italie XIII) is the name of a large urbanism project in Paris which started in the 1960s and was interrupted in the 1970s. Its purpose was to profoundly modify the structure of some areas of the 13th arrondissement, mainly around the Avenue d'Italie which inspired its name. The partially completed project led to the creation of numerous towers in the south of the arrondissement, notably Les Olympiades.

Les Olympiades (0.27 km)

Les Olympiades is a district of residential towers located in the 13th arrondissement of Paris, France. Built from 1969 to 1974, the district consists of a dozen towers built along a huge esplanade, elevated eight metres from the ground, that is dedicated to pedestrians. A shopping mall, known as the Pagode, stands at the centre of the esplanade. Below it are streets dedicated to vehicular traffic. Shops and boutiques can easily receive deliveries on the lower level. The main entrances to the residential towers are on the esplanade.

Butte-aux-Cailles (0.41 km)

The Butte-aux-Cailles (a name that could be translated into "quail hill", although it originates from its former landowner Pierre Caille, who bought a vineyard here in 1543) is a hilltop neighbourhood of Paris, France located in Paris' south-eastern 13th arrondissement. A now extinct river, the Bièvre (from Latin 'Beaver'), once made this area important for the tannery and tissue trades. Today the Butte-aux-Cailles area assembles a young, trendy and festive Parisian population in its many small bars and restaurants.

Italie 2 (0.44 km)

Italie 2 is the name of a large shopping centre in Paris' south east in the 13th arrondissement. It features a Printemps, fnac and over 130 stores, most of which are based overseas. The centre is situated over 3 levels with one level being subterranean (bas), one at ground level (rdc) and one above ground level (haut). The shopping centre is the largest within the perimeter of boulevard périphérique, Paris' ring road that typically confines Paris itself and is an unofficial boundary.

École supérieure de journalisme de Paris (0.48 km)

The École supérieure de journalisme (ESJ Paris) (in English: Superior School of Journalism of Paris) is an institution of higher education, a French Grande École in Paris dedicated to journalism and related studies.

It was made a separate Grande Ecole in 1899 and claims the title of the "world's first school of journalism".
