I visited Luxembourg Gardens just few days ago and there is really not much to see there. It's definitely a summer attraction but it made a quick shortcut walk to Saint-Mitchel area.

If you are anywhere near the Louvre, it's well worth a stroll through these gardens. They are laid out to a very geometric design and are usually quite busy but the boulevards are so wide a group of 50 tourists with their guide are barely noticeable. Admittedly, it was a wee bit cool but a small glass of wine soon... More

whether you want to enjoy a walk among the park, sightseeing the beautiful statues, or take your kids in the play area, or loose a few pounds of that so tasty french food playing tennis for a couple of hours, you'll find the perfect place at Jardins du Luxembourg, right behind famous St Germain des Pres. A wonderful family place... More

These gardens are really beautiful even in the winter. But of course it is just great during summers where a lot of flowers are grown. There are also very comfortable chairs close to the pond where you can relax after a long walk. Take a lunch and enjoy it next to the pond with beautiful ducks and amazing beauty.

We took a slow walk to the gardens and even in February,they were soon nice. Had a break there at a small stall selling coffee. We watched the runners doing their training. I wished I could have joined them . Would love to see the gardens in the summer

Where better to have a lovely stroll in Paris? These gardens are clean and pretty, an absolute must see in Paris. No one around to take advantage of tourists either.

The Luxembourg Park, housing the Luxembourg Palace and its gardens, is one of the prettiest spots to spend a leisurely day in Paris. The park has a central fountain and abundant gardens and benches, and is surrounded by numerous statues, mostly of French queens. One may sit, on warm days, under the trees and eat a picnic meal, or sit... More

Such a lovely place, so colorful yet so elegant at the same time. A must see while in Paris. The only thing to be reproached is a crowd of people and the dust cloud they create but again you can understand them wanting to be there. Go see it, the most beautiful park in Paris.

This place seems to be where the French come for lunch and after work! It is beautiful and the flowers are stunning! I recommend a picnic lunch here!
