This park was one of the prettiest places in the most beautiful city in the world. Lots of great areas to relax, great views, and places to get snacks and drinks. Also seemed like it was great for children!

I came here by chance, always looking for a place to sit and rest my feet. I loved it at first sight. Calm beauty and sheer tranquility. Such a marvelous place to escape to.

This is a true Parisian Oasis. Because it is not located in the very part central Paris, many people will miss this spot completely and will then have truly lost out on something spectacular. It looks as if it's part of a movie scene but is in fact all purpose built in an old gypsum quarry. On top of a... More

If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the capital, you don't need to go too far. Just in the 19th arrondissement, this amazing park welcomes you with its lake and trees. You can go for a stroll, jog or a picnic.

In the last day of our stay we had 3 more hours avail and we decide to go to Butte Chaumont parc. It was very relaxing to take a walk along the alleys to see the artificial water fall and a replica of a small cave. We understand that in the park neighborhood the are a lot of apartmens to... More

If you look for a beautiful park (and you've already been to the Bois de Vincennes & Bois de Boulogne) I highly recommend this beautiful spot. It's a bit hilly and therefore it sports some magnificent views (e.g. of the Sacré Coeur). There are two restaurants in the park. Bus number 75 (leaving from Quai de l'Hôtel de Ville) takes... More

it is a very beautiful, relaxing, quiet park. My roommate and I would bring blankets to lay on the grass to do homework... of course we'd always wind up ditching the homework to eat and sleep because it was so peaceful. Additionally, they have an outdoor bar that opens at night on the weekend. Makes me really miss Paris

I had been looking forward to visiting this park with my family (wife and two kids, age 8 and 10). However, it was somewhat of a disappointment. The bridges (suspension bridge and suicide bridge were underwhelming). The waterfall and grotto were dry. The Sybille Temple was closed off for renovations. The paths were choked full of joggers/runners. What's left to... More

Rest, let things be, and enjoy the surrounding. Don't forget to bring your umbrella and a sleeping bag. Plenty of fluids during the summer. Shade is plentiful. A great place for a picnic.

We had some extra time and thought it would be nice to visit somewhere off the beaten track. Easy to get to via metro and worth a visit. It wasnt very busy and we saw a beautiful bride and groom having there wedding pictures taken.

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.
