Parc des Buttes Chaumont – Fresh air and relaxation



Description The Parc des Buttes Chaumont is a public park located in the 19th District. With a size of almost 25 hectares it is the fifth biggest park in Paris after the Bois de Vincennes, the Bois de Boulogne, the Parc de la Villette, and the Tuileries Garden. But it is by far the most romantic one!Created in 1867, this urban park has roads and paths so that you can easily cross it even with a pushchair..

The most famous feature of the park is the Temple de la Sibylle, a miniature of the Temple of Vesta in Tivoli (Italy), perched at the top of a cliff thirty metres.

This park is the perfect place to enjoy the sun and have a break after a long day of visits. You can sit on the grass along the artificial lake.

During the evening you can go to the famous guinguette called Rosa Bonheur and have some drinks.
