This park was a nice surprise when lost in Paris. Wonderful views of the Sacré-Coeur from the top of the hill!

I would not travel specially to see it; But if you are in the area, it is worth walking around it for a few minutes.

go north and a bit outside the center of paris to see this copy of an Italiante park - planted with trees that are reminiscent of a garden in Italy, they have even replicated the house in Tivoli in the center - there are bridges and steps up and down, surprising trees - definitely unusual and a wonderful day trip...

Have you done the highlights of Paris than it's time to discover this Parc. There is no other park in Paris like this. It's like an Italian landscape painting. It has a mountain, a water fall, a grotto and a spectacular bridge. From the pagode you have a fantasic view of Paris. Plenty of places to eat and drink in... More

A very big park. not so many activities to do, but if you wanna be with nature, nice place to be. There are numerous waterfalls and a lake in middle. the awesome part is that both the lake and waterfalls are artificial which do not at all look like an artificial thing. That's the beauty. When we visited, it was... More

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

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.

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.
