"People Watching" Luxembourg Gardens - Jardin du Luxembourg Tip by cjg1

The Jardin de Luxembourg is the largest public park in Paris. There is plenty of seats for people watching, people playing boules, children playing by the pond, vaious trees, plats, flowers, fountains and statues. The garden has numerous statues all over the grounds as well as figures of French Queens and female saints on pedestals.

The Palais du Luxembourg is also located in the park. The palace was build for Catherine de Medici.

When we came here it was late summer and the flowers were still in bloom. It was a nice relaxing day and we had a seat and did some people watching while enjoying some yummy macarons. It is one of Liz's favorite spots in Paris so I didn't mind indulging her a few hours of people watching and wandering about the park.
