Since 16 May 2012, the carriage interiors of some trains of the RER rail line (Regional Express Network), which serve Paris and its suburbs, have been completely transformed and decorated with views of the Palace of Versailles and its gardens.

The carriages have views of different places and decorative features of Versailles adapted to their interiors to evoke the rich atmospheres of the Palace and its collections. Ornate paintings and golden sculptures line the aisles and even the ceilings are intricately designed.

HH:  I like train travel, but I should really enjoy a ride on this train.

These beautiful bubble gardens recently popped up in the streets of Paris to offer passersby a bit of respite from their concrete environs. Designer Amaury Gallon created each bubble sanctuary with a unique environmental inspiration. One hosts a jungle, while another garden features hundreds of amazing orchids woven into the metal structure that frames these transparent igloo-shaped rooms.
