Paris is a beautiful city with incredible architecture and countless picturesque bridges to photograph but if you, like me, sometimes prefer to escape the hustle and bustle of shops and cars then Luxembourg Gardens is a must! These incredibly well maintained gardens are perfect for a picnic on a nice day, a gentle stroll or even just to sit on... More

I checked out Luxembourg gardens before I went to Notre dam as they are quite close to each other (walking distance). I got to Luxembourg by metro and then a short walk. Definitely something to check out, even for a rest on the many green chairs available around the main garden fountain. 2 hours are a good amount of time... More

(Perfect for a proposal!) We then visited the following day when the sun was shining. There is a lovely lake/pond in... More

Grab a picnic lunch from Gerard Mulot and head over and spend as much time as you have. We have gotten to where we plan a day around just visiting the garden. The gardens are beautiful and you really get swept away to a different time! You will love the chairs!

What a jewel to visit in Paris. I went there at lunch time - it was amazing! There were many people eating lunch, taking in the sun, reading, relaxing, etc. Awesome!

We took a picnic and sat for hours in the gardens. there is something for everyone. A lovely little area for model racing boats, people playing chess, friends meeting. Very relaxing and worth a walk around

An evening or morning stroll through the park was bliss. A must see. The sculptures were fabulous, the architecture of the buildings inspiring and the people watching amazing.

Even if you're only in Paris for a couple of days, go to the Luxembourg Gardens. They won't disappoint. They're magical, beautiful, relaxing and peaceful. Go, you'll love them!

Was here in early April. Beautiful flowers. Interesting fountains. Manicured trees. It's right by the RER B station so you can cut through the gardens and partake the view if you don't have the time to spend an hour or two to dedicate to this place. As a bonus, there's a Dalloyau at the corner by the RER exit on... More
