Paris: Hiking Activity Holiday
The City of Lights
Paris is a beautiful city to discover and this is best done on foot. Paris is small enough to make it possible to sample a number of different quartiers just by taking a stroll. In two and a half hours you can walk from St-Germain-des-Pres to Montmartre, so you are never far away from anything. There are some lovely parks in Paris, such as the Jardin des Tuileries with its formal gravelled paths lined with trees, or the Jardins du Luxembourg (Luxembourg Garden). Like most European cities, if you are looking for more of an adventurous walk rather than a sightseeing stroll, it is best to venture to the outskirts of Paris where you can find countryside that is more appropriate for hiking.
