If you are visiting the capital with children, Come to Paris strongly recommends a detour to the menagerie of the Paris Botanical Garden, also known as the Jardin des Plantes. This zoological park located in the 5th arrondissement of Paris, which is part of the National Museum of Natural History, was inaugurated 220 years ago and today covers an area of 5.5 hectares. It houses more than 1,000 animals and several specific facilities such as a wild animal, a monkey house, a vivarium and a large aviary. You can notably approach orangutans, kangaroos, rhinos, flamingos, pythons, snow panthers and red pandas.

Il pleuvait et malheureusement nous n'avons pas pu voir les animaux. Mais malgré le froid et la pluie ceux que nous avons vus étaient en forme.
