Picnic with a View
Paris is without question one of the best picnic cities. The only challenge is finding a park or garden that allows you to sit on the grass. To keep the land looking lush and pristine, guards mill about to police picnickers sprawled on off-limits sections (though spaces aren't always well marked). Surprisingly, most of the green space in back of the Louvre/the Musée d'Arts Décoratifs - called the Jardin du Carrousel - is open to all and is one of the most sun-dappled spots in the city during the warmer months.
