Some say that Paris lacks green spaces. Not so! The city has an abundance of beautiful parks and gardens ranging from big and famous to small and intimate. Some lovely ones are just a few minutes’ walk from your Hotel Les Deux Girafes.
The must-see Parisian parks and gardens
No visit to Paris is complete without enjoying at least one of its classic parks that are perfect examples of jardins à la française. The Jardin du Luxembourg and the Jardin des Tuileries, with their beautiful paths, their impeccable lawns and wealth of statues, retain an unparalleled charm. The more modern Jardins du Trocadero offers a breathtaking view of the Eiffel Tower. Finally, the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont commands a unique panorama of Paris and is the perfect meeting place for a romantic picnic or an aperitif with friends on the flanks of this hillside green space.
Lesser-known parks and gardens
You may not find them in tourist guides, but your Hotel Les Deux Girafes team certainly recommends the following parks and gardens for charming walks. They’re all within a fifteen-minute walk. Step back in time in the intimate and immaculate garden of the Hôtel de Sens, a beautiful Gothic and Renaissance style mansion. The Jardin des Rosiers Joseph-Migneret is a hidden green space of remarkable loveliness much loved by children. Finally, for a stroll by the water, visit the Jardin du Port de l'Arsenal, a verdant park following the course of the Canal Saint-Martin. With its flowering pergolas and pleasure boats, it’s uniquely delightful.
