Parks & nature in France

Monument / Landmark
“If you go to the Eiffel Tower you should avoid the elevators (where will have to wait at least one hour) and take the stairs. It is far easier that it seems until the second floor (the third being quite high). Morevoer climbing inside the tower make feel being in the heart of the structure and let you take time to see”

“Big hilly park within the city that, besides having spectacular views of the city and sea, is chock full of Gaudi's fantastical mosaic creations (such as the famous mosaic dragon), surreal rock structures, even a museum.”

Park
“An unexpected treasure in the city! Gorgeous views in a tranquil setting. Perfect for lounging in the grass with a good book. It's not a flat park so be prepared to walk up and down hills. There are cute surprises like a waterfall too.”

Garden
“Majestic park overlooking the Luxembourg Palace. A visit here is most enjoyable at any time of the year. So much to see: the ducks swimming in front of the enormous Medici Fountain, children sending an armada of small boats across the pond, the parade of sculptures of the queens of France, the manicured Palace gardens. Take a seat and enjoy the people-watching! You can also just relax, enjoy a sandwich or read a book (plenty of chairs and benches). To do some jogging this is also a great place! Free entrance.”

Park
“Go see a movie outdoors. In summer in Paris (from July 17 to August 18 in 2019), you can go see beautiful movies on the lawns of La Villette. Very good atmosphere guaranteed. The movies begin at sunset, and I recommend going early, for a picnic for example.”
