Change pace from the excitement of Belle Epoque to bask in lush exotic flora. Jardin des Serres d’Auteuil is a series of sprawling gardens and greenhouses on the fringe of the city. In the true spirit of The Beautiful Era, the Jardin had to take on a new level of grandeur. Cathedral-like glasshouses made from cast iron, painted with a captivating turquoise hue, were incorporated into a garden begun by King Louis XV in 1761. Tropical plants were ferried specially by steamship to fill the indoor gardens. Stroll through lanes of cacti, palms trees, and rare plants—the humid environment has allowed them to thrive like an oasis amidst the temperate European climate.
