This is a large park in the center of Paris - a nice respite from the hustle and bustle of urban life. We enjoyed walking through the park to appreciate the outdoors. Even in mid-september, the gardens were well-tended and beautiful.

Watching Parisian life 1st hand, wonderful park no matter what time of tear, Sunday's give a warm glow when all of the families are crowded in. Love the park attendants blowing their whistles at 4.15pm on a winters day to let you know the park us closing. Boules, ice cream, chestnuts, carousels, tennis or just sitting by the fountain watching... More

Always worth a visit, at all times of year. A real oasis in a delightful area of the city. There are cafes, a very interesting collection of apple and pear tree varieties, and of course the Senate building - previpusly a royal palace - surrounded by wonderful (in most cases!) statues.

This is my favorite garden in Paris. I have been there throughout the year and though the gardens are mostly "put to bed" in winter, it's still a peaceful place to wander. Other times, the flowers and shurbs are beautiful, as are the fountains. Kids sail toy boats in a large pond. There are beautiful sculptures, lots of hidden benches... More

This is a must see while in Paris. I was doubtful about walking the distance to see this but it was so worth it. Just beautiful. Bring a coffee, snack, sit back and people watch.

We went to the Luxembourg Gardens twice during our stay in paris. The second time we visited we brought with us the makings of a picnic and spent the afternoon soaking in the beauty of the gardens and people watching. So Parisian.

We went in the summer and it was beautiful, we walked from taking the water bus and it wasn't very far from that point maybe a 15 20 minute walk and we got to see the city while we were walking. There are so many flowers and fountainsp, it's great for taking pictures,

Beautiful Gardens and a good variety of things of interest to look at. Useful places for a cup of tea! Handy for nearby museum.
