Paris being the most beautiful city in the world really needs some breathing space and that's exactly what the Luxembourg Gardens gives it's citizens.

I came here on a grayish Saturday in late October and overall the gardens were nice but certainly not a must visit especially compared with other attractions in Paris. Perhaps they would be more enjoyable in the summer but this shouldn't be on the agenda for someone with limited time.

Phenomenal gardens. Expansive, colorful, fountains, stonework, and rows of exquisitely-kept trees. It's what the French senate deserves!

Lovely gardens laid out with great symmetry and bordered by the Palais de Luxembourg. Central Lake frequently filled with remote controlled boats and lovely tree lined avenues

Must see gardens in Paris. Everything from ponies to politics, sculptures and fountains, cafes and tennis courts. Whatever you fancy, it can be found in this park...

Don't you dare! Wake up as soon as possible and enjoy it. Without the crowds. Get acquainted with the French queens who overlook the inner lake and garden.

A must visit for any tourist in Paris. Although it isn't one of the traditional tourist spots, the beauty and expanse of the garden and how well maintained it is is amazing. A true testament to the love of a husband for his deceased wife.

I would recommend visiting the Luxembourg Gardens during the morning when the foot traffic is light. There were a lot of morning joggers and a few people taking their morning stroll. I really enjoyed visiting in the morning before the sun was completely out. The garden is gorgeous and a must see for people who love flowers. Check the time... More

Beautiful garden! It is huge and right next to the metro station. Beautifully designed. Worth a visit- very romantic. Family/pet friendly- there's little boats for kids to play with.

To find the Luxembourg Gardens in the middle of Paris was a lovely surprise for a stop between visiting the museums. I also recommend checking the exposition at the Luxembourg Museum. I saw Henri Fantin exhibition.

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.
