Paris is an amazing city, with many incredible monuments and beautiful parks filled with flowers and fountains – such as Tuileries garden.
But if you want to see something more natural and really get in touch with nature – rather than one of many man-made parks, then welcome to Parc des Buttes Chaumont!
To be honest, you won't feel like you are in a city.
At Parc des Buttes Chaumont you can appreciate the grassy hills partly-covered by lots of trees, which make you really feel like you are in a forest.
You will feel like going on an adventure trip that's just like a high school mountain camp. You can walk in the undergrowth around the rocks and even go to a cave to see a waterfall.
And if you're nostalgic and already miss that amazing city of Paris, just go to the highest hill in the park to enjoy the most beautiful view in Paris over Sacré-Cœur.
