“Go again and again”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We strolled through the gardens on a sunny Sunday afternoon and had an afternoon tea at a cafe near the centre. The gardens are beautiful and its a great way to rub shoulders with lots of local families and tourists alike. We found ourselves cutting through the gardens a number of times last week just to enjoy the ambience and its beauty - a definite for any visit to Paris!

“This is where I took the most photos of Paris!”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

This garden is like walking in a French movie. The guards had on historical French hats and uniforms. The garden sections were gorgeous, the gravel paths meandering and enchanting. I love this garden so much and hope to visit again.

“A very nice park in the center of Paris”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We recently stayed in an apartment a few steps away from les Jardins de Luxembourg. Even if we hadn't any kids we would have visited this beautifull park. But with kids it is a must: they kan run, the can play (nicely equiped large childeren's playground with minimal entrance fee), the can ride the merry go round, during summer season there a ponies to ride and miniature boats in the pond.

There are lots of activities going on in the park such as joging, tennis and gymnastics but it is also veru suited just to be lazy en sit/lay in the sun

This was the first sight we saw in Paris! Wow, what a place to start! The sun was shining, lots of people sunning themselves, reading or playing sports like tennis or bowls. There were lovely lawns, statues, flowers and plenty of places to sit, have coffee, or tracks to wander around. Be careful of pick pockets.
