Jardin des Plantes (Botanical Garden) Review

In these luxurious Botanical Gardens you'll find remnants of the once-huge Amphithéâtre des Trois Gauls (Three Gauls Amphitheater), built in AD 19.

    Not where the guide says it is

    Les Jardins des Plantes is not where the guide book says it is (it was in 1807!). It is now in Parc de la Tete d'Or. We didn't end up seeing it, but I am sure it is lovely!
