  • Incredibly beautiful french inspired building outside the city. The park is so nice for a long relaxing walk. There is also a Chinese pagoda: nothing special but good to walk around. The place is like 20 minutes from the center by public transport, highly recommended a visit to escape the city kind of atmosphere.
  • I wasn't particularly impressed by the palace. The exterior is quite nice but the interior was all done at once and is a bit second-rate. The Chinese Pavilion was well worth going to see, for the Chinese mirror paintings mainly. The Theatre was also worth it and there was a good guide. It's a nice trip to do on the boat.
