Beautiful gardens with two types of garden areas. One that is very lush and then the more formal type. Not too many people.

We visited the indoor parts of the botanical gardens. A nice break but found it rather high priced, when comparing to Danish indoor botanical gardens where you see larger space, more variety and for free. All signs where in French. Park seemed nice (and free...More

A pleasant garden but not overwhelming. Ideal for families and outdoor activities - yoga, pilates.... it is near another garden - the Kings Garden - and they could be visited 'ensemble'

It’s well laid out, beautifully kept, and so easy to access. It’s a zoo, a natural history museum, and very much a Parisian coiffured park.

Peaceful and expansive, nice park escape from the city even in November. Many Parisians use this as an escape to stroll, to watch their kids, to run though, to eat packed lunch, to appreciate the beauty. You can also visit the exhibitions. A must is...More

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
