DIY Paris Treasure Hunt @ Luxembourg Gardens Paris 

- Queen Marie's Treasures in Luxembourg Gardens - 

Luxembourg Gardens Paris

Get Out in the Fresh Air and Explore Paris in a Different Way!

Paris hosts some of the best museums and art galleries in the world but when the weather is nice, it is hard to stay indoors in the City of Lights!

Or perhaps you don’t mind spending a full day at Louvre Museum or Orsay Museum but this is not the idea of fun your partner/ friends /kids have…

If you are blessed with a day of sunshine and blue sky, by all means, take full advantage of it and head outdoors to get the most out of Paris, that’s what Parisians do! Paris is a city rich in history and culture but this is not something exclusive of museums, churches, and palaces. You can also learn about Paris and its history through some cool outdoor activities in Paris like a Paris Treasure Hunt.

Treasure Hunts are also a great way to explore Paris for the first time, especially if you are looking for alternative or unusual things to do in Paris. Treasure Hunts are great for couples, families, with the kids or just adults, when visiting somewhere new because they take you past many local attractions, opening your eyes to so many things you would ordinarily just walk straight past.

World in Paris is launching Queen Marie’s Treasures in Luxembourg Gardens Paris, a treasure hunt in the 6th Arrondissement of Paris for those who want to explore Paris differently whilst having fun.
