Paris: Beautiful Jardin du Luxembourg

One of the beautiful spots we've been to in Paris was without question the Jardin du Luxembourg. It was just so beautiful even at Fall. I think it will even be prettier at Spring.

Jardin du Luxembourg is located in the 6th arrondissement, near the Sorbonne University. We were fortunate that this park is just walking distance from Holiday Inn Notre Dame, where we were staying.

Well, a lot of attractions are close by Notre Dame area actually. So we were really lucky to have chosen the perfect area to stay in Paris and just have to walk to everything.

However, if you are with a group of people or a large family travelling, I suggest you get a car hire in France. It's going to be cheaper and not to mention very convenient when you move from one area to another.

Anyway, here are some of the pictures that we took of Jardin du Luxembourg:

This is the point of entrance for us.

I just love how the trees' trunks are so pitch black.

Beautiful potted flowers!

Another angle. It's just so pretty!

Palais du Luxembourg. It served as the headquarters of the Luftwaffe during the Second World War. Now, the building currently houses the French Senate.

This has got to be the most beautiful shot of the batch. My husband perfectly captured the mood. Somber but pretty.

Another one. Unfortunately, we did not see the original model of the Statue of Liberty which is inside the park. I guess we will see it some other time.

I hope.
