What’s going on in Paris this October.

18 October 2018 |

Paris is all decked out in autumn hues and the light is at its softest, creating a vintage nostalgic atmosphere beckoning to be explored. October 2018 looks promising.

Forest-bathing anyone?

Not deep woods but Paris has some gorgeous parks to stroll through and admire the trees wearing their fall collection. Here are our favorites.  The stately Jardin des Tuileries (Metro: Concorde, Tuileries) is right in the back yard of the Louvre Museum, if you happen to be in the neighborhood. The Buttes Chaumont, in  the 19th arrondissement, (metro: Buttes Chaumont) with its extravagant, romantic landscaping, perfect for an afternoon stretch.  The Jardin du Luxembourg (metro: Odéon) near  St Michel and the Sorbonne quarter affords a real slice of French savoir vivre with its graceful and perfectly maintained gardens, dreamy walking paths and inviting benches. Finally if you are near the Champs Elysées, the Park Monceau in the 8th arrondissement, (metro:Monceau) is a welcome break from the city rush with its decorative oddities and lush greenery which so inspired  famous painters and photographers.

Royal Fountains

Musical waters at the palace of Versailles, every Saturday night you will be entranced by the musical fountain shows.  Check their web site before going as times vary and frequency is subject to change in function of water supply.
