Was on the Hop-on-Hop-off bus and got off at the Catacombs which was way to busy so we decided to go for a walk instead of wait to for the next bus. We did not want to view the gardens to begin with but while walking, we decided to pop in since we were "in the area" and boy am... More

In the shadow of the Senate house, you can sit on a chair around the pond which sometimes has model boats, and watch the pace of life slow down.

I gather this was a lovely place to visit in summer, but in winter, it's not worth the visit. Bleak, no grass or foliage, NEXT !

These gardens are beautiful, we came in December so the trees did not have any leaves and they were not as beautiful but still worth a visit. There are plenty of sports activities available in these gardens, tennis, basketball, skating etc. A good place for a picnic, good for kids. Should come in a nice weather.

Jardin du Luxembourg is one of the most beautiful parks of Paris, among Jardin des Tuileries and Jardin des Plantes. Lots of places to sit down and just relax in the sun. The main fountain area with the view of the palace is very nice. It’s a happy place full of kids, chair squatters, strolling talkers and lovers. The Grand... More

Running from a museum to another, take some time to relax here. Les Jardin du Luxembourg are the perfect place to have a rest in a sunny day, if it's warm outside you can also grab some food and have a quick lunch there. On Sunday you will find lot of Parisiennes jogging, reading a book or just relaxing. Furthermore... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
