Misconception regarding the city: there is no greenery in Paris, no parks and gardens in Paris, only buildings. If we pay attention to leaves, to trees everywhere, we realize that the city has many green spaces. And while the summer is there, Hotel de Seine is taking a tour of parks and gardens in Paris for you.
First of all, two minutes walk from Hotel de Seine, is the former painter Eugène Delacroix’s studio, now a museum. A beautiful house on the romantic Furstemberg Square, as well as a delightful garden. We can easily imagine the artist find inspiration in this quiet greenery …
At the end of the rue de Seine, you will appreciate the superb Luxembourg Garden, its musical kiosks, ice cream at the entrance, small boats on the central fountain or the majestic statues of the queens. Did you know that you can rent a tennis court and play in the heart of Paris? 🙂
On the other side of the Seine, 5 minutes from the hotel, the Tuileries Garden borders the mythical Louvre Museum. Sculptures, fountains, tree paths, and even now the Tuileries Festival. Take a seat on one of the famous green chairs and enjoy the view of the Concorde and the Champs Elysees ….
The Garden of Plants, where you can also visit the Museum of Natural History, is home to gigantic greenhouses with many varieties of plants. A menagerie will satisfy the little ones as well as the adults. Leaving the garden, discover the Arènes de Lutèce, built in the 1st century. This Gallo-Roman amphitheater hosts some events but most of the time, the place is very calm as a tribute to history, perfect to land with a book.
A little further, in the 12th arrondissement, the Parc Floral de Paris. This botanical garden will be the scene of the festival Classique au Vert from August 11 to September 2, and for the occasion, classical music concerts will take place every weekend.
Book your summer stay at Hotel de Seine, and enjoy the parks and gardens in Paris …
