On the garden’s grounds sits a botanical school, four galleries of the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle, several specialized gardens, a labyrinth and even a small zoo. (more…)

When we started having families,post 1968, many of us shifted our quarters to the 14th arrondissement,a leafy, more villagey neighbourhood just a bit further south, young enough owing to the presence of the Cité Universitaire.

Paris Life: the Jardin du Luxembourg

Luxembourg gardens, ParisWritten by  Linda Donahue

I discovered the Jardin du Luxembourg completely by accident. It was my first trip to Paris – my first day in the city – and I was staying at a lovely little hotel on the rue Monsieur Le Prince in Saint-Germain. I strolled up toward the Boulevard St-Michel and suddenly found myself walking through the gates of a beautiful sprawling park. (more…)
