Paris is particularly renowned for its monuments and gastronomy, but it also has some great parks and gardens. In total, the urban area boasts 2,300 hectares of greenery. With small public gardens, secret havens, big modern parks and the woods of Paris, the Parisian capital has no less than 500 parks and gardens in its 20 arrondissements. Each cultivates its own style and history: the very intimate Jardin du Palais-Royal, the vast Parc de la Villette, the romanticism of the Parc de Bagatelle … every park and garden in Paris has an identity of its own!
