Where to take a walk in Paris.
If you're looking for a nice, not touristy garden to take a walk in Paris, I would suggest you pay a visit to Le Jardin des Plantes, in the 5th arrondissement. It's a botanical garden surrounded by several museums: Evolution, Mineralogy (where I took the photo of the crown jewels), Paleontology and Entomology! (See Wikipedia for a full description). But more that this, this garden also shelters an Art Deco wintergarten and two enormous greenhouses (of which you can see a part in this photo). Don't miss all this if you come to Paris.
