    What calm and serenity! But no trouble for the little ones with the playing field, Horn and the ponies... and the seating everywhere

    This is a beautiful palace but it is not open to the Public. But the gardens are worth the effort with toilets, food and places for everyone.  more »

    The park is stunning. Escape from the city but still inside. Lovely for kids, reading books, little boats for kids to hire €4 to play with in the pond.

    Incredible outdoor experience. Buy a sandwich and relax on the grass with a bottle of wine. Couldn't have had a better afternoon.

    Awesome place too just sit and relax for an hour and escape. Take a picnic, or at least jambon et formage and pick up so bread and a drink en route. If you can't be bothered with that, there's plenty of places around the as you approach to get something. It's a really beautiful place too chill. For kids there are donkey rides and also hire a wooden sail boat to float in the pond.

    Wonderful parc to walk around at any time of the year. And museum in the parc with great exhibitions.

    Lovely park. Places for eating, sitting on grass or in shade, places for kids to play and people to play tennis or basketball, concerts.. But also very full and popular on a nice Saturday afternoon.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
