Meudon Observatory Park

What do Rodin, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Johnny Depp all have in common? They once lived in Meudon, a charming suburb located about 6 miles/10 km southwest of Paris!

France is known for having beautiful parks and gardens. At the Meudon Observatory, I got to see artfully trimmed trees, manicured lawns, as well as a splendid view of the Paris skyline.

Astronomer Jules Janssen founded this observatory in 1876
You can see the Eiffel Tower and Sacré-Cœur from the park

Watch my short video of the view from Meudon:
