Nice for a little afternoon break, the Luxemburg Gardens were close to my hotel and St. Sulpice. Nice place to stroll around and just relax. Small café where you can grab a coffee or cold drink.

This 400 year old building, also serves some of the French Senate's "official" needs, Originally built as a "Royal Palace", it still has a "Royal Character". The architecture of the building... and the associated magnificent well designed gardens makes it DEFINITELY WORTH a visit!!

Located in Jardin de Luxembourg (Luxembourg Garden), the green lung of Paris, Luxembourg Palace is the meeting-place of the French Senate. It is open to the public when the Senate does not meet. We were there on a Friday, which was fine.

Although the Palace was closed while we were there, we did manage to visit the beautiful gardens twice. Be on the look out for the miniature Statue of Liberty.

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

The garden is free, there is no charge to walk through the gardens. The actual Palace is the offices of the French Senate, I do not think you can access the building, but we did not go into the building.
