Parc des Buttes Chaumont is an enchanting space where you can forget that you're really in the city. The rolling hills, beautiful vegetation, sculpture, and walkways create a peaceful atmosphere more suited to quiet contemplation and relaxation far from the madding crowds. An unexpected treat! You could easily spend many a quiet hour either sitting and soaking up the sights... More

Came here only once but wanted to go straight back. Had heard about the views of the Sacré Coeur but was blown away by just how stunning they were. Went up to the pagoda thing at the centre of the park to get the best view across. I imagine it would be even better if you visited when it was... More

You would never expect to find a park like this in Paris. It has hills and the natural topography and vegetation are inthe English, not the French style. A piece of heaven in Paris. Do plan on going.

Parc des Buttes Chaumont doesn't offer much to me at all. Okay, it's a green space in a big city, and that's worth something, but it seems that the main attraction" is the Temple de la Sibylle, inspired by the Temple of Vesta in Tivoli, Italy. This concrete monstrosity is perched at the top of a cliff overlooking an artificial... More

poorly maintained. No security. just felt very much un- easy in this environment. Maybe if you are from the Middle East, you will be accepted but anybody else is perceived as a foreigner.

I was there in January and even without many flowers or leaves, it was pretty cool. I guess it should be wonderful during the summer. There was also a lot of joggers. Really worth a diversion if you 're in the Belleville or la Villette areas.

A big park in 19em arrondissement northeast of Paris with surprising undulating hills with grassy slops, some quite high, waterfalls in rocky man-made gorges and Sybille Temple right at the top of a rocky cliff with a suspension bridge and many other features. You can find out more about the interesting history of the park and its many features on... More

A lovely space to unwind and sit and watch Parisians relax. A quiet space in a wonderfully busy city

I came across this by accident and so very glad I did. This is certainly not the usual tourist location but what a beautiful way to spend an hour or two relaxing. Was a wet drizzly day and there was virtually no one there; perfect. It is a multi-level park with fountains, waterfalls and follies. If looking to fill in... More

One of the most beautiful artificial gardens of Paris. Great for jogging, family and couple walking and seeing a nice view of Paris. But it suddenly turns to a unsafe and dangerous place after evening.

Staying in Belleville / Pere Lachaise

Neighborhood Profile
Belleville / Pere Lachaise
At the eastern edge of Paris lies Belleville / Père Lachaise, an understated wonderland of local treasures. Alongside the world-famous cemetery, family-owned delicatessens and cafés nestle between local stores and establishments. The richness of the population here has created a little Chinatown of Asian restaurants, and the area comes to life at night by a funky underground scene. Façades change from one street to another as one passes from white walled provincial homes to tall blocks and reconverted homes. The whole area is an inspirational mix of people from all corners of the world frequented by artists, students, immigrants, and Parisian families. Once home to supporters of the Paris commune, its rebellious nature is now offset by its rural charms.
