“Palais du Luxembourg, Paris, France”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

A very interesting palace! Seat of the French Senat that I knew from TV since I watched senat's debates from time to time. We participated in a guided tour, offered only in French, and visited the hemicycle, the hall of "Livre d'Or", several other absolutely beautiful halls, and the staircase. The palais will be open to public during so-called Heritage Days (Journees du Patrimoine), 14-15 September 2013. It would recommend to get some knowledge about the palace prior to the visit - this would help to understand and APPRECIATE its historical, artistic, and political richness!

“Very charming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Luxembourg Palace and Gardens are a must-see in Paris. The Palace itself is quite charming with great architecture. There was some kind of kids' competition going on in the front lake, with kids floating boats representing their country's flags. The gardens nearby were also pretty neat and worth spending some time at.
