Lying just four miles from the centre of Paris and easily reachable by hire car, Pantin is a commune located in the city's northeastern suburbs. Known for having been the focus of the award-winning French comedy, So Long, Stooge and the one-time chief operations centre of French bicycle and motorcycle manufacturer Motobécane, Pantin, it has some quirky attractions for visitors.
The cemetery in which the Fratellinis, France's best known circus family, are buried attracts a number of visitors who come to pay their respects. The greatest attraction of this destination, however, is its proximity to Paris.
Paris can be reached in less than 15 minutes by metro, with Hoche, Église de Pantin and Bobigny-Pantin-Raymond Queneau stations all serving the area along Line 5. Alternatively, avoid the masses and nip into the capital in the comfort of a rental car. Avoid the hassle of booking your car hire when you arrive and book online in advance.
Pantin has a few pleasant open spaces and greenbelt spots where visitors can enjoy a stroll or relax with a book on a sunny day. Among the places worth visiting are Diderot Park, Courtillières Park and the Montgolfier garden.
Pantin has a small selection of accommodation options, among which are the Hotel Reference Paris Porte de Pantin, Ibis Paris Pantin Eglise and Etap Hotel Paris Porte de Pantin; all owned by the reputable Accor hotel group. A variety of smaller independently owned establishments can also be found.
