I had looked up hidden gems in Paris for our trip and this was recommended - and a hidden gem it was. It was easy to get to from the centre of Paris by metro and then a walk up Simon Bolivar Boulevard, if I...More

This was a highlight for me having the kind of atmosphere depicted in many an old impressionist painting.The art deco mini village on the hill bearby is also well worth a look.

This medium-large park is a good escape from the hectic Parisian life. It has large height differences, a charming little island with two spectacular bridges and small temple like look-out point on top and a cave with an artificial waterfall in it. It makes for...More

We'd read about this park, its beauty, charms and size and are so very glad we found it. It's a bit off the beaten track but not too far from the St. Martin Canal area--which is also a great area to people watch and eat....More

I visited on October 7 which was a Saturday and the park was abundant with bridal parties taking pictures and going by in the streets honking their car horns in celebration. Very hilly park and you can follow lots of paths that are marked with...More

When I hear the word "park", I think of a flat space. And I don't think of Paris as having hills. But more than a 100 years ago, planners took this space (previously a quarry, and town dump) and made a beautiful park with rolling...More

I've been here a few times in 20 years. It's a little of the beaten track. I suggest that you start at Republque and walk north along Canal St Martin then turn north east near Jaures Metro. It's interesting to contrast the poorer neighbourhoods north...More

If you are coming here by metro get off at Buttes Chaumont Metro. Its free. I did walk all around the park taking photos almost feels like I was in New York city central park. Go higher up the park and see the city view....More

This is one of Paris' major parks, a huge area with lots to see and do. A favorite place for strolling, jogging, and basking in the sun. Built on the site of a former rock quarry. Nineteenth Century landscape architecture. Off the beaten tourist path.

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

No it is not! Çan't believe those who said yes. Last year I got a Velib at the metro and rode over. Signs clearly say No Bicycles (in French)

Hi Viktor, If you're facing the lake and the Mairie de 19eme entrace is behind you, just start walking to your left around the lake and you should find it. Hope this helps! Enjoy Paris :)
