Farmer's market Visit the Hidden Paris

Paris is known as the City of Lights, but for Parisians it is also a city of parks & gardens. Every arrondissement has its parks, some small and intimate, others grandiose.

In total, the city has 1200 acres of green spaces, parks & public gardens, not including the two Bois (Forests).  Lakes, waterfalls, belvederes, artfully arranged "faux ruins"...  french landscaping is designed to be appreciated for its beauty & artistry.
