Walk in the Parc de Sceaux

A walk in the Parc de Sceaux certainly the most beautiful park designed by our André Le Nôtre near Paris.

This park was designed by André Le Nôtre, gardener of Versailles. He elaborated here the same ideas as Versailles: the canal, the flowerbeds, the broad views. The visit of these French parks are often a pain because they are too large. Here that's not really the case the park is immense but still enjoyable. The entrance to the park is free. It is easily accessible by the train (RER B - Sceaux Park), you still have to walk 10-15 minutes to reach the park from the train station. Not to be missed if you are in the area.
