  Jardin du Luxembourg - my preference...
by Lilasel

Favorite thing: I love parks & gardens, actually I'm from green city...
Two huges parks - Bois de Boulogne at the west of Paris and Bois de Vincennes at the east part - are saving parisians.
But there are a few famous gardens as Tuilleries or Luxembourg as well as less famous but also beautiful - the park of Monceau.
It's not raining all the time in Paris, so you can have a good rest in one of them, just find a suitable book somewhere in popular "Gibert Jeune" shop (la place St-Michel 5 arr. or Boulevard St-Denis 2 arr.) or somewhere at the second-hand book-sellers along the Seine...
My best way for respite
