AROUND THE CLUNY GARDEN
The Jardin de Cluny, the ideal starting point for your Parisian strolls
If Paris is a party, it is above all an endless walk and the Jardin de Cluny is the ideal starting point.
The Latin Quarter, Notre-Dame de Paris, Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the Pantheon, the Sorbonne, the Louvre and the Centre Pompidou, the places that have made Paris famous, can all be reached by foot from the Jardin de Cluny. But there are also many other, more confidential and no less fabulous places.
The most "chic"
Ironically, this district is named after a church. However, if Saint Germain des Prés is a chapel, it is definitely the chapel of free thinkers and daring people.
The most "romantic"
Second of the five royal squares in the capital, it was named after the son of Henri IV, the future king Louis XIII, when he was "dauphin of France".
The most "lively"
Covering most of the 5th arrondissement, the Latin Quarter includes some of the most emblematic monuments in Paris.
Shakespeare and Co
The most welcoming
Made world famous by Hemingway, this century-old English-language bookstore is more than a bookstore, it's a place to live.
The most "Roman"
It is here that they installed their Cardo Maximus, from North to South, and their Decumanus Maximus, from East to West, the two structuring axes of a Roman city
The oldest tree
is a Robinier planted in 1601, just opposite, in the Square Viviani.
The most "historic"
The Musée de Cluny houses one of the world's most important collections of objects and works of art from the medieval period.
Notre-Dame de Paris
The most 'religious'
Along with the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame de Paris is probably the most famous Parisian monument. So much so that you think you already know everything about this almost thousand-year-old cathedral.
The most "cosmopolitan"
A historic district par excellence, the Marais district, located in most of the 3rd and 4th arrondissements of Paris, is above all a lively district with exceptional architecture.
The most "monumental"
The neo-classical design of the Pantheon's architect, Soufflot, was nothing less than to rival the most famous monuments in Rome!
The arenas of Lutetia
The most "confidential"
It is the perfect place to improvise a picnic, or even a game of pétanque on hot summer evenings.
The most "garden"
Validated by all Parisians, this is one of the most beautiful gardens in Paris to discover in any season.
The most "private"
discover the architecture of its many private mansions cradled by the Seine.
