8. There's an entire hidden countryside village
In Belleville, make your way to Rue de Mouzaïa. Here and in the surrounding streets you’ll find what feels like its own small town village. Why? Nearby Buttes Chaumont park was a former quarry, and the houses in this area were constructed in the late 1800s to house the quarrymen. Today, walking by these villas is a step back in time -- small houses with gardens that make you feel far from Paris. This street is part of a neighborhood sometimes referred to as Quartier Amérique, because the gypsum extracted from the quarry was sent to America.
