Paris has loads of museums and other attractions. One of the best on a sunny day is the Parc de Butte Chaumont, with its little waterfall, old trees, the lake with the island and the temple on the island. This green lung can actually make you forget that you are in the center of a huge and busy city. The... More

Beautiful park where you can live as a true parisian, away from the turisty places. Great for a Saturday morning for jogging, walking your dog or just relaxing over bread, cheese and wine on the lawn.

We bought a picnic on the way to the park to sit and enjoy on the grass. It was a lovely day so many others were doing the same. On a previous visit the little temple was closed off so it was nice that we were able to visit on this occasion. The temple was very busy when we visited... More

Was fortunate enough to stumble across this park when staying at a nearby hotel. What a beautiful place to easily spend a few lazy hours in the sunshine! Well worth a visit if you're in the area.

I've been meaning to go here for years. It's peaceful and has great views. A nice break from the busier areas of the centre.

I LOVE this place!!! Discovered it a couple of years ago when I was trying to figure out how to replicate a photo I saw of Sacre Coeur on a postcard. Figured out it was taken from this park. Every time I go to Paris I make sure to visit this park. It is peaceful and majestic. So many interesting... More

We've started to visit this park on every visit to Paris. We particularly like it because it's kind of a 3-D park; there is the lake to walk around trying to identify the birds which live there, and to walk up the hill and across the bridge and even up to the gazebo for the views, especially of Sacre Coeur...

This park is hidden away on Rue Botzaris. We accidentally found this gem while walking in search of a suggested restaurant. It was originally a limestone quarry which was turned into the park around 1860. The park is a haven for the local community, and many native Parisians were picnicking with family and friends or just sitting on the grass... More

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.
