Reviewed on 17 Aug 2011

Just on Paris' east outskirts is an immense stretch of green called the Bois de Vincennes, also referred to, along with the Bois de Boulogne to the east, as "Paris' Lungs".The site of a 14th-century fortified chateau, the Chateau de Vincennes, the Bois de Vincennes offers seemingly endless space to stroll, picnic, boat, and unwind. Even though the wood is located at the city's borders, a day at the Bois de Vincennes is enough of a getaway to count as a day trip from Paris.
