English landscaped botanical garden with a pool & waterfall, lawns, rare trees & Jewish memorial.
“10-minute walk to the museum. You’d admire Foucault's original pendulum which proves the rotation of the earth and once hung from the dome of the Pantheon. Museum staff members explain how it works.”
“The treasures of the museum retrace the history of techniques, from the sixteenth century, in seven fields: scientific instruments, materials, construction, communication, energy, mechanics and transport. It is the old abbey of Saint-Martin-des-Champs which serves as a showcase for the collections, presented chronologically. The visitor thus discovers a charming automaton from 1784, La Joueuse de tympanon, the unavoidable Pendule de Foucault (1851) or even an airplane from 1897. The visit ends… in the Arts et Métiers metro station, inspired by Jules' Nautilus Verne.”
“This is the place to go if you want some delicious french pastries in the morning! My favorite: Chausson aux pommes”
“Café and restaurant. Nice terrasse and good burgers. Very typical of the neighborhood. Next to the beautiful Carreau du Temple”
