Located at the heart of Tête d'Or Park, the Jardin Botanique de Lyon is a place after a nature-lover's heart. France's largest municipal botanical garden (eight hectares/20 acres) is mostly made up of greenhouses, home to some 15,000 species of flora divided into thematic sections: florals, tropical plants, Mediterranean and Alpine flora, bamboos, desert plants, a section devoted to roses, and many more. One of the coolest may be the greenhouse devoted to carniverous plants ("feed me, Stanley!"), while other highlights include a number of endangered species. It's open every day, and free to enter; it's also possible to book free guided tours given by botanical experts.
