Paris in July can be a test of patience, with massive lines to every sight! The Luxembourg Gardens was a wonderful surprise. Lovely lawns and flowers, a bit of quiet away from the hustle and bustle of Paris. Buy a coffee or an iced tea...More

It was a nice garden to visit but unfortunately they no longer allow you to see inside the Château unless you are accompanied by a member of the French senate. There are several small cafes and vendors scattered throughout the park.

Very well kept gardens which also have an orchard inside. Plenty of facilities, chairs, tables, everything very clean. Lot of statues to see and nice features. Nice place to hide from the city!

I took my young boys there and they had a blast with the safe playground, the "marrionettes" (puppets) show and the model boats with different flags that can be sailed on a big fountain :)) Enjoy!

This is a must see destination, away from the traditional tourist attractions. Go there by bike and take a picnic lunch and a bottle of wine

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

There were some crepes stalls and coffee stands. We got sandwiches from a shop just outside. Plenty of chairs and sears inside.
