I spent a week in Paris leading a tour of the gardens in and around the city. I was joined by a wonderful group to see what the gardens had to offer.
Luxembourg gardens holds a special place in my heart as my family and I stayed near the gardens for a week five years ago. We spent every day in this special place. Not only is it an amazing garden, it’s a place for locals just to hang out. When our group visited on a Tuesday afternoon, the vibe sure felt like a quiet Sunday morning.
Seeing Claude Monet’s Giverny is a once in a lifetime experience. To walk around the famous Lily Pond was amazing. Monet painted many of his masterpieces at the pond.
Quite frankly, there’s nothing like the Palace and Gardens of Versailles. Nearly 2000 acres of pristine gardens are astounding. One of the things that makes the gardens so magical are the groves which flank each side of the main ally. Each one is filled with new surprises.
