There are approximately 450 gardens in Paris. In addition to our regularly scheduled tours we can arrange a visit to the the following:
Our tours specialize in historic landscapes but also recognize the diversity of garden cultures in and around Paris.
Kitchen Gardens: the roof top permaculture gardens at the Bazar de l’Hôtel de Ville and Galeries Lafayette.
Botanical Gardens: Specialized tours to gardens of particular botanical interest include the Jardin des Plantes, Paris or the Serres Auteuil.
Buttes Chaumont & la Villette: This tour explores the intersection of landscape design and urban renewal at the Butte Chaumont, one of the greatest examples of the picturesque in 19th-century Paris, and one of the earliest examples of an urban renewal project and La Villette, a 20th century garden.
Modern Gardens: Promenade Plantée (precursor to the High Line in New York City); the Parc de Bercy, located at the former wine center of Paris; Gilles Clement’s Jardin En Movement, one of the first sustainable gardens at the Parc André Citroen.
We are also happy to arrange tastings and other sensorial experiences to complement any of our garden tours.
