So this is where the Parisians spend a lazy Sunday afternoon! We had traveled from the Eiffel Tower and needed a place to sit for a bit! And there it was, a park and garden welcoming us with open arms! It was a bit cold, but we realized we weren't alone in feeling the pull of the garden!

With a busy schedule in Paris, only do to tif you have time or are staying in the area. Note that there are gravel/dirt walk ways so your shoes will be dusty. Not a good walk in the winter because it can be a bit muddy. Great to do on a summer or spring day to start the day when... More

best garden in Paris by far - well kept and offers lot of activities and for 2.5 euros kids can play in protected playground for as long as they want. There was flowers even in winter when in all other parks/gardens it was nothing. And in summer it might be even more better. We visited this garden 2 times while... More

Not only it is a marvellous garden with flowers and a lake, but inside this eden there is also a wonderful museum of art with excellent exhibitions. Always a place to be and see when in paris. Only problems if you have dogs . They are not so pet friendly.

Instead of taking buses or metro between the 5th and the 6th arrondissements, why don't you have a walk through this magnificent garden?

I was lucky enough to stay at an apartment within walking distance of the Gardens, so I was able to visit it several times during my visit to Paris last summer. Not only is it gorgeous, it also very peaceful, always has something going on, and it's great for people watching. I spent many hours there just enjoying the beautiful... More

This historic parc with it's castle show the french spirit. Just grab a coffee with croissant and find a chair near the fountain to read a book in the sun.

I have no idea why this is number 2 of things to do in Paris, me and the wife walked all around, everything was dead and dull. Maybe due to winter, but end of the day it's just a park nothing fancy really going on! We stayed 5 minutes' walk away from the park, I guess it's worth visiting but... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
