It’s easy to spend an entire day wandering around this sweeping city park, which is the second largest in Paris and is the garden of the French senate. The beautifully landscaped garden, which was built in the 17th century, contains hundreds of statues, monuments and fountains – including the first model of the Statue of Liberty by Frédéric Bartholdi – which you’ll stumble across as you make your way through the well kept flora. Only a short walk from many of Paris’s main attractions, the park is the perfect place for any sightseer to put their feet up, read a book and enjoy a picnic.
