You can walk along the footpaths or see the gardens from a boat called the Barques à Cornet.

  • Really nice experience, the guide was good and knowledgeable. The place itself is really a green oasis within the city and well worth a visit.
  • Such a strange tour! I loved it but my French is poor so could have been better...but that's no fault of their own.
