    Wow! Beautiful! I almost missed this amazing attraction in Paris and kind of stumbled upon it by accident. Definitely worth checking out!

    This gorgeous spot is a nice green break from the city with glimpses of the Eiffel Tower and senate to boot.

    Jardin du Luxembourg is a famous park in the 6th arrondissement and it's a lovely destination for families. It's a perfect spot for picnic among the fountains, statues and impeccably cared garden, and for the little ones, there is a fenced-in playground with zipline, slides, swings and a carousel. There's an admission fee of couple euros per person, but it's definitely one of the best playgrounds in Paris.

    This is one of the most beautiful parks in Paris, in my opinion.

    An enormous and beautiful garden, Le Jardin du Luxembourg is perfect for runners and it's a great spot for a summer picnic.

    I'm sure there are better things to do here (look at statues? fish in the pond?) but the grass is extremely comfortable and there's a supermarket nearby where you can buy cheap bottles of pink wine (that's what everybody else seemed to be drinking) and cheese or snacks of choice and you can sit and watch people do yoga, kids play, birds poop or whatever else is happening at the time for a few hours..

    There's nothing like sitting on a bench overlooking the sailboat pond to make visitors feel briefly Parisian. The gardens are stunning and the families gathered here really make the area feel alive.

    I think there are few better ways to see a country than to experience how people live. After a day sightseeing at museums and the like, spend a few hours here. Watch families sail model boats on the lake, stroll the gardens, relax.

    The Jardin du Luxembourg (Luxembourg Gardens) is a quiet, tranquil place in Paris and is a good place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The bushes are nicely trimmed and the flowers are fully blossomed. I would suggest you come here, sit on a bench, eat your pastry, and watch the locals as they walk around the gardens.

    Особенно впечатлили пальмы и цитрусовые деревья, бережно сохраняемые в оранжереях зимой и выставляемые на улицу в теплое время года.

    The Luxembourg Gardens are a big green space not too far from the Left Bank and Latin Quarter. There's a small art musuem, food, places to sit, and some sport going on.

    A nice centralized park for the public in the heart of Paris, only a 20 minute walk from the Eiffel Tower.

    Entrée Place André Honnorat. The park is large with various areas to do nothing in and sculptures everywhere, but at the Fontaine de Medici it is lined with trees, almost enclosed, the space feels like you stepped into another country. You could enter from various gates around the park, the most impressive would be from the south on Place André Honnorat. A more interesting entrance would be around the corner on rue Guynemer; stroll under rows of trees, watch people playing ball, and then walk out into a grand open green space.

    One of the most beautiful parks in Paris, great atmosphere specially in summer months, read about it in citytripplanner.com with just 2 visiting the city, it was a relax way to end my eurotrip.
