paris: jardin du luxembourg


I think it is safe to say that the Luxembourg garden is one of the finest gardens in Paris. The garden is located in the 6th district and at the north end of it is the Senate building, Le Sénat. It has some beautiful statues; the Medici statue in the top photo is probably the one that attracts the most. There are benches and chairs spread all over the garden, which adds to the pleasure of taking a moment there to breathe and enjoy the scenery. It truly is a peaceful area.

    1. No, I didn't see a show. It'll have to remain on my list of things to do in Paris ;-)

  2. I love this garden, Lisa...I have so many happy memories of times spent here. Next to Hyde Park in London which is my favourite park it is definitely the Jardin du Luxembourg ;-)
    Beautiful photographs!
    Have a good week.

  5. Beautiful, atmospheric photos, Lisa! We love this garden also and are always struck at how incredibly peaceful it is in the midst of the city. One can really relax and recharge here. Love see your autumn views there. A bit melancholy and so lovely.

  6. There's something about you and Paris that go so well. I lived quite close to Jardin du Luxembourg and would go there all the time. Such a beautiful place regardless of season.
