The park is very good, with a great atmosphere to relax and enjoy the sun and flowers. We went to a National Geographic Exhibition at the Geological part, that was great and had a fair price.

It was a nice sunny day and beautiful flowers and greenery around was very refreshing. Local people were very helpful in guiding the way. Recommended if you are looking to just chill.

We visited the garden as part of the Batobus itinerary. As a Botanic Garden, It is not very impressive. The ones we have in Australia are way better, especially Melbourne and Sydney. You even have to pay to see the greenhouses housing tropical plants and...More

I visited this beautiful garden twice. There is so much to see and the plants are all very well tended. The greenhouses have many tropical specimens. If you like gardens and plants, you will like to visit here.

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During

I can tell you it's part botanical garden (like 70%) and part Zoo. For both places is required a fee, can't remember exacly how much, butis very acceptable (for the Zoo was like 5-6 euro).
