Jardin du Luxembourg, 75006 Paris
Located in the Latin Quarter, the stomping ground of the student community, it is a key part of Parisian life: safe in the knowledge that, close by, the senators are working on reformulating our country’s laws, you can make yourself comfortable on the ancient wooden chairs, littered around the big pond, in which little children sail small plastic boats. Sitting there, cast your mind to Maupassant, who, once upon a time, wrote: “It was like a forgotten garden of the last century, as pretty as the gentle smile of an old lady. (…) here and there one came across beds of flowers, lines of little trees looking like schoolboys out for a walk, companies of magnificent rose bushes, or regiments of fruit trees.” And things haven’t changed a bit. Simply add puppet shows, carriage rides. And you.
Open from 7.30 a.m. to 9 p.m
