I'm keeping this review short and sweet because it's one of those places I think everyone should visit during the Spring/Summer in Paris and see for themselves - I don't want to paint a picture for anyone because I went to Luxembourg Gardens by chance on my way to Notre Dame and was overwhelmed by the beauty of it -...

The Luxembourg Gardens are pure delight in the heart of the Left Bank. This is often an overlooked Parisian site because it is not particularly near some of the other more traveled sites.

In early September, on a beautiful sunny day, the grass was a deep green, the flower borders were in full bloom, and Parisians were out in force. In addition to the more formal areas, where you can relax in metal chairs and do whatever, there are also a number of statues to study, paths to wander down, and more. We... More

My partner & I spent quite a few hours here at the Luxembourg Gardens. Taking in the beauty of the landscaped gardens, and equally surrounded by a number of well placed fountains was a sight to behold. Even though there were many a tourist attendance, we had no problems locating a nice quiet spot to ourselves. This was our first... More

What a beautiful way to spend a Sunday in Paris. Bring a picnic and sit in one of the chairs or stroll the gardens. A nice slice of Paris life.

It was great to see seats placed all around on paths so that people could rest, read or chat. Well-kept lawns, interesting statues and one of the prettiest display of flowers in gardens in Paris. Lots of joggers and activities and a community atmosphere.
