Spring n Paris at Hotel Balzac
Parks and Gardens in Paris
Famous in Paris at this time of year are the Parks and Gardens with their blooming flowers which give this special scent to the city during spring.
Paris' parks and gardens have long been a source of inspiration for the impressionist painters which so often painted Parisians at picnics in romantic green settings. In Paris, a park is almost never a mere plot of grass reserved for sports, and a garden is a unique selection of flowers and plants. Parisians pride themselves in making their city's parks and gardens places of elegance and artistic detail. Even the romantic gardens have been carefully planned to imitate nature. Take a stroll, picnic, and revel in Paris' best green spots.
