The luxembourg gardens are one of the oldest gardens of Paris. They have always been popular among the parisians who like spending their free time in a sunny sunday to sit down and read a book or just walk with their dog. As a reference, this is also the place where Cosette met for the first time Marius in Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables.
You will always find empty chairs and benchs in Luxembourg gardens, which are quite popular for the parisians. The atmosphere in the gardens can be really peaceful on a sunny afternoon.
