    Description :

    While the Parc Monceau has remains of the Roman times, the Luxembourg Gardens have the fountain of the Medici’s, created by the spirit of the Italian Renaissance. And there is also a difference between the children playing in the park. Generally the French—even the poorer—dress their children very nicely, but in the Parc Monceau one gets to see real dolls always hurried by the nanny, who shouldn’t rampage as they wish, while in Luxembourg park the children of all social classes play very freely and joyfully.
