Just a beautiful space. Even in winter with not much green Parisians flock there. Boats in pond just so charming. A serene place. Have stayed nearby a couple times and a nice place to walk through.

Even in the heart of winter, a walk through the Luxembourg Gardens is a joy. There are always people to watch in this expanse of parkland.

You could see what this would be like in bloom -- lots of beautiful hedges and shrubbery, with broad expanses of open space that is so rare in Paris. I'd love to buy a baguette (and some chocolates!) and spend an afternoon relaxing and watching...More

Lovely place for an evening walk. Beautiful gardens. Great place to sit and relax in central Paris. The Pantheon is close by also and worth a visit.

After the busy Boulevard St Michel one finds oneself in this haven of quietude. The “bassin”, totally beautiful, the pond with its surrounding chairs on which you can sit and contemplate regardless of the weather, the puppet shows........a must for everyone to experience.

The Medici Fountain is my personnel favorite spot in Paris. At every turn these Gardens are a delight.

Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is

ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
