TO DO | Sunset Picnic at Parc Des Buttes Chaumont, Paris


Bonjour Paris! Lovely to see you again…
The thing I love about Paris is every time I visit, I have an entirely different experience. A lot of that comes down to who I am travelling with and whether it is for biz or pleasure but I just love exploring and discovering the hidden local gems.

First on the list for this trip was Parc des Buttes-Chaumont. This is an elevated park in the northeast section of the city that features impressive views of the surrounding area. A friend who lives in Paris insisted I go check it out and suggested visiting at either at sunrise or sunset. So, on my first night here (aka yesterday), my brother and I went to the local grocery store, purchased a nice bottle of red and some picnic goodies and off we went.

It was BEYOND. The night was still with little wind and we were able to enjoy a laugh over a bottle of wine watching the sunset. It was a little too romantic for a brother/sister combo as it really is a great place to cuddle up to hunky boyfriend but it is still gorgeous.

So if you are planning a trip to Paris with your boyfie… add this place to the list ladies!!

Where? 1 rue Botsaris75019Paris (closest Metro – No. 19024, 28/30 rue Botsaris)

Tip? Bring a rug. Even though it’s Summer it gets pretty chilly.

Best time to visit? Anytime really depending on what you are going for. But if you want to experience the sunset in the Summer months I suggest 7:30pm.
