“beautiful garden and palace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

Jardin de Luxembourg is one of my favorite places in Paris. I come here every time. And it differs from season to season. Leaves in autumn, sometimes snow in winter, beautiful flowers in spring. It' s really great for picnic or for sun. Palace is situated in the garden. And is interesting for me as they hold exhibitions here. for example, in February 2013 - Chagall. So I recommend you to consult the event program in Paris. Sometimes there is a queue, you have to wait for 30 min. usually they open entrance on Vaugirard street.

“Spectacular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

The gardens around the Palais du Luxembourg are simply amazing. Even in winter when I visited Paris merely having the opportunity to walk around the incredible gardens here was great. Aside from the cold, I bought a coffee and pastry from a nearby boulangerie and sat in the gardens and it was perfect ! I recommend this place for others to go to when visiting Paris !

“Just Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

This is a photographer's dream and is a beautiful building to photography with the small lake in front of it. A great place to come in the summer and watch the small boats on the lake, but in winter it is still beautiful.

“the senate”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

you need a special permit to visit this palais du luxembourg as it's there that stand the senate of France....the palace also hosts a place of exhibitions...but watch out it's not the Louvre...it's very small the fee is often expensive.....but the gardens of luxembourg just outside are one of the most pleasant stays in Paris where you ll have a chance to meet hundreds of students from the Sorbonne or other universities

“Beautiful palace and grounds. Lovely!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

The palace at one time was a royal residence until the revolution and even used as a prison at one time and is now the home of the French Senate and it hosts world class exhibitions. The grounds are so beautiful with flowers everywhere (even in October), a fountain with ducks waddling around and sculptures everywhere. Great place to take pictures, have. Seat and people watch. Make sure you go I to the Luxembourg gardens as well while you are here. Absolutely lovely.
