I was really looking forward to my first visit to Parc de Belleville after reading about the magnificent views of the city it afforded. Such a disappointment -- maybe I was there at a bad time, but it was in a state of total disrepair....More
My partner and I stayed with a friend in the Menilmontant area as we didn't want to be surrounded by tourists. On our first night we got a few bottles of beer and headed to this park with an amazing view of Paris and far...More
After you've seen all the major parks, check this one out. It's very big and was meant to provide some green space to this workers' neighborhood. A big cascading fountain and incredible views of the city below.
Tourists always flock to the usual places in Paris. But forget Montmartre, its crowds and tourist traps. Go to Belleville in the East side of Paris. (Subway Belleville or Pyrénées). From rue de Belleville, turn on rue Piat and walk up to the Parc. You...More
Given the location and some of the views this could be a very nice park, sadly however it's a bit of a mess. Of all the parks in Paris I have visited this one has to be the poorest in terms of maintenance. Lots of...More
Simply gorgeous... it helps you to disconnect from an agitated life, especially if you came to Paris for business;) I personally appreciated this place. During the summer it's obviously prettier but even in autumn, it's still a nice place. You can read there, admire flowers,...More
All the way at the top of the park at the rue Piat and rue Envierges there is a fantastisc view with the Eifeltower as a backdrop. Go there round sunset time and you will have a nice experience. Some nice bars and restaurants for...More
We specifically booked a hotel near this park because we had seen pictures of the playground that we envisioned our eight-year-old loving. We arrived and found a run down mess of a playground. There was a tape closing off part of it with hazard signs...More
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.
