Looking for green ?                  Gardens and Parks

 You could visit all of Paris  around a park and garden theme!

 

Parks:

  • Secluded, historic,elegant, foodie Jardins du Palais Royal, behind Comédie Française, across rue de Rivoli from the Louvre
  • another close one is les Tuileries, between Louvre and Concorde.
  • A very well known one is the Luxembourg on the left bank.
  • The Jardin des Plantes offers strolls, zoo, Natural History Museum, A great Botanical section and a charming Alpine Garden.
  • Enjoy Buttes Chaumont and Belleville in the East of  Paris

Just to name a few. I can share lists and maps if you are interested.

 

Gardens: little gardens are spread all over the City. Some secluded. When weather is warm enough, it is a good plan to buy a nice eating out lunch, and enjoy  on a bench, taking advantage of a quiet atmosphere or watching the crowds.

 

I am happy to share with you my picnic tips and some garden addresses wherever you'd like to stroll
