What a wonderful park. This is my favorite place to spend a quiet afternoon in Paris. On the weekends you can watch the locals playing bocci ball and the kids sailing their boats on the small pond. The many chairs there make it a great place to bring your coffee and a book and just chill. It is just a... More

Wonderful place to relax while visiting the St. Michel district of Paris. Places to sit beside the fountains and coffee shops just outside the gardens.

Absolutely adorable. To me personally it was a place where all the stereotypes about France proved themselves to be true. It is so nice and peaceful there. I didn´t notice hoards of tourists, so had a chance to enjoy my ice-cream next to one of the refreshing fountains.

Traveling can be overwhelming, especially on big cities like Paris. The Luxemburg Gardens offers a great escape to find a bench in the corner of a garden and escape the busy city life. Its in a fantastic, prominante and safe neighborhood, so don't forget to go exploring once you've regained your walking legs. Don't miss out on this gem if... More

A beautiful little park about one kilometer south of the Seine, reached by crossing the Pont a Change and continuing along the Boulevard St Michel, passing the famous Sorbonne along the way. Fronting the park is the Luxembourg Palace, seat of the Senate of France--terrific architecture, even in a city full of it, but don't expect to visit. Entry is... More

Walking through the gardens is a dream. I love to stop by the espaliered fruit trees and the apiary. Even when there are no flowers it is an oasis in the city.

The formal gardens are magnificent, but you can also do as the Parisians do and just enjoy the space: come to run, to walk, to sit, to read, to watch children sailing their toy boats, to enjoy outdoor concerts or coffee in the pavilion under the trees.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood’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 neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
