L'île aux Cygnes, Paris

4.1
#5 of 8 in Nature in Paris
Discover a small, unique escape from the city at L'île aux Cygnes, an artificial island in the middle of the Seine. The narrow islet mostly consists of a tree-lined walkway where you can jog, stroll, or simply people-watch from one of the benches. At the end of the path stands a Statue of Liberty, a one-fourth scale replica of its larger relative in New York City. Nearby, look out for the public workout space and playground tucked under the Grennelle Bridge.

  • Beautiful and romantic
  • Swan island is an artificial island that has been restructured at the time of the construction of the bridge of Grenelle. It is very appreciated by walkers and allows to see the Statue of liberty, a copy to 1/4 in New York.

  • If you want to see the real statue of liberty, you have to visit this place in Paris, the New York statue is a replica of this gift of the French to the Americans in one of the world exhibitions, I understand

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
