It's difficult to believe that you're in the heart of Paris when you wander around the Flower and Bird market.
Strolling through the stalls of this market, you feel as if you are in a sort of natural paradise filled with flowers, plants and singing birds. It is composed of two large buildings and lots of smaller stands where you can buy roses, orchids, lilies, tulips, bulbs, birdcages, books on gardening and plants.
