In a city that is the destination of millions of travelers every year, it can be difficult to find your way to its lovely, serene spaces.

The enchanting Jardin de la Vallee Suisse,invisible from the street, accessible only if you know how to find the path. The Square Boucicaut, its children's carousel hidden inside a grove of oak and maples. Square Batignolles, the shade of the old chestnut trees an inspiration to the painter edouard Manet and poet Paul Verlaine.
