Well, actually, this was some years ago. We were renting an apartment in Vicennes and frequently rented bikes. We would ride through the forest and often ride to down town Paris, park the bikes and visit the city. This is the best way to actually...More
One of the green lungs of Paris, a huge park on the East side, with a zoo, the remnants of an international expo, lots of bike and hiking paths, a castle, and best of all, lakes where you can rent boats for rowing.
Bois de Vincennes is perfect for a stroll or a run at anytime of the day. It's larger than it looks with lots of pathways to explore. Great for taking a break away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Yes it was an accident that we got here. Wow, what a great place. Lovely gardens. Didn’t see the zoo, too busy walking but would spend more time next visit .. autumn colours everywhere... saw the little driverless Navette in the park. Strange looking. I...More
Really worth a half day walk or if you're as fit as the locals, a run or bike ride around. Very bushy with main pathways ans many sidewalks into the bushland. If you're into sunbath in natural style there is a designated area for nudists.

Hi - last week in Paris we went to the races at Longchamp (Bois du Boulogne) and it seemed pretty easy to just buy a ticket at the gate (5euros). Not sure if it will be more difficult in the height of summer but as with all things in Paris in tourist season, getting there early would be the key. Try the Paris Info website for contact details and info on times etc - for the Hippodrome de Vincennes, Paris.
Also very easy to get metro to Vincennes but it's a huge place so you might want to check if there's a courtesy bus from the Metro to the race track - there was one at Longchamps but as we were running a bit late we chose to get a taxi instead. Good luck and enjoy the races!
