The Luxembourg Garden is a beautiful place. There's a palace as well. (Check the times before you go if you want to go inside the palace) Very quiet and peaceful. Perfect place to snap photos.

great walking track, lovely gardens and quiet corners to read a book. Definitely worth a visit the next time you are in the Saint Germain neighborhood

Had missed seeing the gardens on previous trips to Paris. As the palace is home to the French Senate the gardens are immaculately maintained. The entire park is not crowded (weekday visit) and a very peaceful spot.

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.
