After visiting Pissaro exhibit at the museum we spent over an hour in the gardens which are beautiful. Parisans were playing cards and chess, jogging, and playing their version of bolls. We quickly joined in the fun and cheered a good shot. An excellent free break on a hot day.

We were there on one of the first beautiful days of spring. It was like most of the city was there enjoying it with us. There were runners, family, tennis players, music enthusiasts and toy boat sailors of all ages. What a wonderful way to spend the day!

Beautiful gardens but view limited due to large numbers of people. Maybe due to it being a Sunday?? Worth the visit though.

Witness little children pushing a toy sail boat with a stick, just like in the movies and pictures. The garden is huge! It is a special place, luxurious but it doesn't feel overboard.

I used to stroll there a lot, so it really is a normal place for me. I guess it is just a nice classical garden.

It was relaxing to walk through the gardens and see them well kept during all this time. I specifically Loved the trees and their shape. They are not as breathtaking as the gardens at Versailles, however it was on the way back to our hotel so hey might as well see them!

This is one of my favorite places in Paris to sit and take in the beauty of the city. Make sure to bring a snack and a blanket if you want to picnic in the grass. The park is filled with stunning flowers, statues and people watching.

This was such a fun place to hang out. We saw men playing boules, rode the carousel, played with boats, and just ran around. Also had a pay to play playground but it was closed by 6pm. Mini Statue of Liberty was cool to see also.

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.
