  • It is on the quai Saint-Bernard, on the left bank of the Seine, between the Pont de Sully and Pont de Austerlitz. A museum open air, with the parts without fences is or perimeters. It's a beautiful walk stuck to the shore of the River, with lots of vegetation, very well maintained and ornate, according to Tino-Rossi garden along different paths.

  • On the banks of the Seine in the garden Tino Rossi Museum of sculptures. There are about fifty sculptures representing the art of the second half of the 20th century. To the pluses can be attributed to the fact that the sculpture is no fenced off, if you prefer, you can go over and touch them

  • We found a nice shady spot to have a picnic on the banks of the Seine where we could eat and watch the tourist boats sail by. The gardens are very nice with many sculptures
