This is a really beautifully designed botanical garden. The section with alpine plants was on of the most stunning things I have ever seen. I could have spent all day there! I strongly recommend this to any fellow plant nerds.

If you've been to NYC's High Line, then you've seen the Plantes' little brother. This($free) garden walkway above the city streets is surprisingly pleasant and quiet and just magnificently beautiful! When in Paris and in need of some down time away from the madding crowds,...More

The vast area of well-maintained beds is a delight for the senses. By chance we were fortunate to enter [free of charge] via the gate opposite the Pont d’Austerlitz and were greeted by the sight of horticultural excellence stretching into the distance; the view ending...More

The Jardin des Plantes is simply beautiful. A must see to getaway from the hustle and bustle of the busy Paris streets. The sights, sounds and smells take you back to Mother Nature.

I really enjoyed "discovery" this spot. Associated with theZoo and the Natural History Museum this is a great place to spend an entire day.

The gardens are a lovely place to just wander and to look at the various plants and herbs on display. Pick a sunny day and the sun flowers will follow the sunshine.

The collection of flowers and plants is astonishing. The garden is really the place to spend a couple of hours in.

If you want to rest a little bit, go there. Nice walk among many many plants, nice flowers, singing birds, ducks and comp. We didn't visit the animals part. but the rest was really pleasant.

it's a public park with a sad soon inside. If you want to see sad old monkeys in tiny cages looking out at you, this is the place to be.

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During

I can tell you it's part botanical garden (like 70%) and part Zoo. For both places is required a fee, can't remember exacly how much, butis very acceptable (for the Zoo was like 5-6 euro).
