Strolling through Parc de la Tête d’Or
I’m up very early today. A delicious breakfast that barely touches the edges, and I’m heading out on the advice of my concierge towards Parc de La Tête d’Or! He tells me that a gold head is supposedly hidden here. I decide to entrust my gold to his keys and not go in search of that famous head! The first joggers bolt onto the pathway surrounding the park. They’re brave! The rhythm of their strides gradually disappears as I walk along the lake. It’s so big! Had it been the afternoon, I would have happily rented a boat or a pedalo. All of a sudden, the rose garden rises up before me. It was inaugurated by Princess Grace of Monaco who called it a “wonder”. I proceed and it reveals itself to me completely. The pale pink of Audrey Hepburn, Barbara’s black outline and Brigitte Bardot’s powerful scent. All these great ladies invite me to step further into this intimate abundance of colours and fragrance… I am intoxicated. I am drowning. I swoon and faint. Parc de la Tête d’Or is open every day of the year from 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.
