A bit out of the city. What a wonderful place. The rose garden is endless and the rose varieties are numerous. A great spot to visit. Very romantic and beautiful. a change from the busy Paris.

Best park in Paris if you enjoy nature with botanical gardens and ponds. You can jog for long distances seeing beautiful scenery. Best way is via metro to Porte Maillot o Porte Dauphine stations. Enjoy!

Dear Londoners, no offence! Although inspired by Hyde Park, this park is definitely more relaxing and charming. Lac Superior is a must see. I highly advise you to enjoy a Horse Race in the racetrack located in the park.
