Long Walks Along Avenue des Ternes in Paris

Last evening, we took a walk along Avenue des Ternes in the 17th arrondissement of Paris. It is one of the prettiest avenue in Paris and it is just a few blocks away from the Arc de Triomphe and the Avenue des Champs-Elysees.

You will find plenty of boutiques, specialty stores, restaurants, cafes, boulangerie (bake shops), and traditional Parisian buildings and apartments.

Since it is summer when we took pictures and videos, you won’t see many people around because August is not the busiest month in Paris. The locals are on vacation away from the city traveling elsewhere.

You can reach the place via Metro line 2 (RATP). Just get off the Ternes station…or is just a few minutes walk starting from the Arc de Triomphe if you are planning on taking a walk around the neighborhood of the 17th arrondissement.

Parc des Buttes-Chaumont: A Green Paradise Inside The Busy City of Paris

In the north-east of Paris, in the 19th arrondissement of Paris, is a huge public park called Parc des Buttes-Chaumont. It’s so big it is measured at around 25 hectares of land. It is the fifth largest public parks in the city of Paris.

One of it’s main attractions aside from the lush green grasses and beautiful lake, is the Temple de la Sibylle at the peak of the hill, and the small grotto with waterfalls.

Jogging and walking are one of the favorite activities here and the beautiful green grass all over the place is a picnic haven among locals.

A 63-meter-long suspension bridge, eight meters above the lake, allows access to the belvedere. The bridge was designed by Gustave Eiffel, the creator of the Eiffel Tower.

The park boasts many varieties of indigenous and exotic trees (many of which are Asian species).
