Butte Chaumont

The quest for a quiet park away from the hoards of tourist that have taken over the more central gardens leads to some lovely places.


Not always true of Butte Chaumont. This was the hill where executed criminals would be left on display in the medieval times, and later it became a dump. Generally, an unpleasant bit of real estate until the mid-19th century, where it was made into a sprawling, hilly park.


It's a great place for a relaxing, wine-fueled picnic and you get a nice view of the city and a beautiful sunset as well. That's pretty much a Paris storybook tale right there.
