Very beautiful. I will have to see it on my next trip to Paris.


Thank you I have been to Paris many times and never visited. Now I will. I always love reading your emails.

Thank you et merci


While this isn't on most first time visitor's Paris to do list, it is definitely worth working in the tour. Of particular note is a very approachable Tadao Ando structure; his trademark style is well evident. The sculpture garden is a place of great peace, and the tour itself (which discusses the mission and history of UNESCO is also quite interesting).

Tours in English are only offered on Wednesday afternoons, and this is not a last minute decision you can make. Try and write to the email address specified above 6 - 8 weeks in advance of your visit to make sure you don't get shut out. Tours in French are twice daily and hence more available.


These are very lovely photos- don't think
I ever visited this garden when I was in


thanks brian appreciate the extra info>


Oh Richard, I've been waiting for a profile on UNESCO's art collection. My uncle is actually a librarian at UNESCO. I recall my lunches with him there with the Eiffel tower in close view, the stories he divulged to me, especially the absence of fish in the Jardin Japonais. Love from NY
