We packed up a wonderful picnic dinner to entertain visiting friends from New Zealand who are Paris lovers and have vast experience of the city and its sites and attractions over many years but who had never been to this park. It did not disappoint and they were taken totally. We gravitated to a fave spot, laid out rugs and... More

This park is very accessible by Metro and is a delight on a sunny day. There are crowds of happy locals having picnics on the grass and there are great views to be had of the surrounding city. Rather than going to the central parks with more tourists than locals, go this urban gem.

A good idea is to take a plan of the park with you as there are few clues once you are in. I had a drink by the Pavilion du Lac, sat relaxing in the sunshine listening to Morcheeba- just superb. Lots to see. Very busy on a Sunday when I went. Great antidote to the busy streets of Paris.... More

What an excellent park to spend the afternoon wondering around and for getting lost in. There are 3 or 4 excellent places to have a drink at within the park, our favourite was Rosa Bonheur, friendly bar and good drinks. Allow at least two hours to enjoy and perfect for a picnic.

Peaceful paths on a green hillside, accented by a stunning vista to the west over Paris. The water adds an especially calming element.

Even though we visited on a cool and drizzly day, I still enjoyed wandering around this enormous park. There were places to sit and watch the world go by and there was a nice view towards the Sacré-Cœur from the top of one of the hills in the park.

The Parc des Buttes Chaumont is more off the beaten track than the Jardin du Luxemborg and Tuileries and s perfect for a wander, a picnic and walking up the butte to view Pars below. Well worth a visit and explore.

Went for a stroll with my wife and tiny baby. Saw all kinds of cool trees and all kinds of different people enjoying the park. Teenagers smoking! Old dudes doing Tai Chi and kickboxing! Dogs! They have it all.

The Buttes Chaumont is a green oasis which must be visited when coming around that part of Paris. Relaxing and welcoming the Buttes Chaumont host a unique sightseeing spot : the Belvedere from which you can get one of the greatest view over all Paris. I suggest to get their at the end of the day and to admire the... More

This charming, large park brings the countryside into Paris. Lush, rolling lawns, shaded trails, picturesque lake, waterfalls, and a fine cafe too. Well worth a visit to see this man-made park.

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.
