They don't have the bold, grand features of the Tuileries or Jardin du Luxembourg....but are definitely lovely in their own quiet way.
(1) Garden at the Musée de Montmartre....this hidden oasis of calm was just up the hill from our first apartment in Montmartre. On the way to the garden, you pass Lapin Agile, that infamous Montmartre nightclub....that still attracts the crowds today.
The garden of the musée is not grand....but it is lovely....and there's also a fabulous bronze sculpture (above) positioned at the side of the garden.
Inside the musée, through one of the windows, you can also spy the close Montmartre, a rare working vineyard in Paris about the size of a tennis court!
|And this is the little clos Montmartre....|
a working vineyard right in the heart of Montmartre.
|Isn't she romantic...and I love the artwork|
in these old Parisian posters that would
have been all over Montmartre and Paris.
Again it's not grand...and is attached to the Musée de la Vie Romantique....once the home of the 19th century Dutch artist, Ary Sheffer. Apparently, Ary would have little Friday evening soirées here.....and invite his 'artistic' friends Delacroix, Ingres, George Sand and Chopin......n i c e!
|Just down this shady path...you'll find the romantic garden|
|The 9th arrondissement is not known for its greenery....|
but this little patch of green
is a quiet haven in La Nouvelle Athénes.
