Jardin du Luxembourg
On my last trip to Paris I wanted to visit the Luxembourg Garden but didn’t get a chance to do it. This time I was not leaving Paris unless I got to see the beautiful garden. It’s the second largest public garden in Paris and it absolutely took my breath away.
After the garden, we walked down to St Germain des Pres for lunch. St Germain des Pres is located on the Left Bank. I always think of the Left Bank as the place to find the most authentic French restaurants and where the locals are eating. Also it’s a great place for just walking around and discovering little shops for souvenirs and stationary. Many high-end boutiques are located on the left bank including Hermes, Isabel Marant, Christian Louboutin, Margiela, Celine, Louis Vuitton and more.
St Germain des Pres also reminds me a little of Le Marais. We also spent a day there and loved it. If you are in Le Marais, you have to stop by the Azzedine Alaia outlet. Everything in there is 60%-70% off. Also, you must go to Merci. It’s a unique boutique that carries anything from painter tape, pens, flowers, silverware, clothing and accessories…they also have a wonderful restaurant! The store is reflective of typical Parisian elegance. They have some of my favorite designers like Isabel Marant, Paul & Joe and Roseanna. Here are some photos from the trip. Enjoy
