"For the seasoned Parisian traveller or the novice looking to get off the beaten track Cahill provides a roadmap to parts of the city most visitors will never see"
In a city that is the destination of millions of travelers every year, it can be difficult to find your way to its lovely, serene spaces. Away from the madding crowds, the gardens of Paris offer the balm of flowers, tall old trees, fountains, ponds, sculptures, with quiet Parisians reading "Le Monde, " taking the sun, relishing the peace.
These places are often tucked away, off the beaten tourist track, and without a guide they're easy to miss: The "Jardin de l'Atlantique, "out of sight on the roof of Gare Montparnasse. The enchanting "Jardin de la Vallee Suisse, "invisible from the street, accessible only if you know how to find the path. The "Square Boucicaut," its children's carousel hidden inside a grove of oak and maples. "Square Batignolles," the shade of the old chestnut trees an inspiration to the painter edouard Manet and poet Paul Verlaine.
"Hidden Gardens of Paris" features 40 such oases in" quartiers" both posh and plain, as well as dozens of others "Nearby" to the featured green space. It is arranged according to the geographic sections of the city--"Ile de la Cite, Left Bank, Right Bank, Western Paris, Eastern Paris--"a lively and informative guide that focuses on each place as a site of passionate cultural memory.
