The gardens are gorgeous. If you're visiting with kids, check out the play park. Perfect for a sunny day in Paris.

We visited the gardens one rainy evening in August, just before dusk. These gardens are lovely, the formal design is elegant and soothing after a day of walking the city streets. We loved the garden plantings, including an unusual planting of swiss chard (silver beet) at the base of a Statute!. A beautiful garden. A must se e!

I visited these gardens many times during my three months in Paris. They are a great place to sit and relax and watch the world go by or eat lunch.

The Luxembourg gardens are somewhere you can spend a few hours of a day or even all day if you wished, looking around and taking in the authenticity of the Parisian heritage. They are extremely well maintained and easily accessible from many of the arrendisimos, and surrounded by many lovely brasseries. One of the guards of the palace was very... More

This was a great place to take our kids to give them a break from all the museums on our trip. They played with the boats and loved the playground. It was a fantastic place for them to be kids while the adults could sit and relax and just take in all that's around you while in this fascinating city.

You can experience Palazzo Pitti and Boboli Gardens in Paris. Great for a nice walk(or run) or have a picnic. You can read your book under trees with fresh air or watch people playing tennis.
