Is Paris Flat or Hilly?

paris-hillsParis is not the City of Seven Hills. Although there is a rumour that it is, like Rome, built on seven hills. Nevertheless, Paris has its hilly sides. Most obvious, of course, is Montmartre. But also in the 16th arrondissement, Paris has a hilly streak. Especially at metro station Passy this becomes very obvious. This is where metro line 6 comes above ground to cross the Seine on the Bir Hakeim bridge. And it actually comes above ground at the station, of which one end is in the hill, and the other elevated from the ground.
