Paris is home to many different parks. Some of these landscaped areas are what you might expect from a city on this scale. However, the culture and personality of Paris mean that there are some slightly more unusual parks and gardens to find in the city limits. Here are 5 of the best gardens and parks in Paris.
An emblematic Parisian monument, the Eiffel Tower stands a proud 324 metres high against the city’s skyline. As much a symbol as a landmark, it’s the most visited paid monument in the world. Unique and beautiful as she is, it’s amazing to think that the ‘Iron Lady’ was not expected to be permanent.
Tucked away and picturesque, the covered passages of Paris are the very essence of quaint charm. Take a stroll through these sheltered, historic, beautifully preserved and elegantly lovely shopping arcades, each of which has its own special ambiance.
Every winter, Paris immerses us in the magical atmosphere of Christmas with exquisite illuminations and beautifully designed display windows. A break in the capital to soak up all this enchantment is surely the best gift you can give to yourself and your loved ones as the year draws to a close. Experience the incomparable ambiance of a Parisian Christmas when you stay at the Hôtel de la Motte Picquet.
Discover hidden corners of the capital, get plenty of exercise, be filled with a sense of freedom and take the time to linger… Discovering Paris by bike is a delight at all times, but especially in the sunshine. The Hôtel de la Motte Picquet warmly invites you to take a magical and unforgettable break. You can rent your bikes at the hotel’s reception !
