We enjoyed our visit to the Garden. What a beautiful place. There were plenty of chairs if you want to sit down. It would have been nice if we were not in a hurry. This is the place where you can sit, relax, read, take your children to play, etc. The gardens were well kept.

It would be fantastic if there were parks like this everywhere but sadly no. What a wonderful hour we spent people watching as we relaxed in the plentiful chairs and admired the symmetry of the gardens. Must see!

Beautiful flower gardens, interesting color arrangements. The Italian Grotto is lovely and shady. The park is so big, even on a sunny Sunday it didn't feel crowded. So many available chairs to sit on, watching the children float their sailboats, have a picnic or just read. It was a very pleasant surprise how much we enjoyed it.

After a Saturday family lunch in the 5th, we took a stroll past the Pantheon through the Luxembourg Gardens. Half of Paris had the same idea, but the park is large enough that there was room for everyone. Lots of free chairs around the pond, some lovely lawns (no sitting!) and beautiful flower-beds, even in late summer. Plenty of activity... More

A really nice alternative to the hussle and bustle of the Tuileries and other more central spots. Tucked away it boasts some lovely gardens, a playground for young kiddies and a decent cafe to buy lunch and snacks. A small 'lake' can be used for hiring sailing bioats, Eu3 for 30 mins. all in all not a bad place to... More

Want to dawdle through a kaleidoscope of flower beds, cosy little spots with tall greenery leaning over you and a "coupla" reasonable cafes nearby? These gardens are for you. We arrived lunchtime and saw French folk chewing up the tracks trying to get fit..the sweaty bodies only added to the whole atmosphere, come dinner time when we returned the place... More

The day we visited was a picture perfect day, with temperatures in the low 70's and bright sunny skies. Absolutely delightful. Every part of the garden is worth exploring, but definitely don't miss the Medici fountain.

Beautiful flower beds, fountains and boating 'basin' for model yachts. Sheer style and elegance and right in the Latin Quarter. Very relaxing and uncrowded
