Parc Luxembourg as Never Seen Before

The second largest public garden in Paris, the Jardin du Luxembourg, populated with more than 106 statues, has many stories to tell.  We will reveal the history of one of the greatest French queens, dearly missing her native hometown, and an attempt to recreate a slice of it.  We will hear of famous French writers and poets, such as Victor Hugo and Verlaine, and mythological legends, such as Acis and Polyphème.
Come and join us as we travers through one of Paris' most magnificent parks, still haunted by the spirits of its illustrious walkers.

Please come prepared for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. 

Instructor: Emmanuel Putois, Agrégé de Lettres Modernes, and instructor for 20+ years.
