Favorite Spots in Paris, Part Seven - The Gardens


And where better to do nothing than a lovely Paris garden?

The two gardens we hear the most about are Luxembourg and Tuileries, both pretty darn fab.  A lot of bloggers seem to choose one over the other, resulting in "Team Luxembourg" vs "Team Tuileries." 

Me?  I'm totally am an ALL the gardens gal.

There's a lot here to see so don't stop exploring after you've enjoyed the large lawn and palace.

The carousel is the oldest in Paris.

The Medici Fountain is lovely and peaceful.

The little cafe is a perfect spot for a bite to eat, a cup of coffee, or a glass of wine.

It's a wonderful stroll from the Louvre pyramid to the Orangerie to see Monet's water lilies

And - there's a carousel ❤

There's more, lots more, in the way of gardens.

A book I recommend is by Susan Cahill, with photographs by Marion Ranoux.

Many of the gardens and parks have carousels. 

If that's of interest, I have another recommendation -  😊

j'espère que vous reviendrez
