Luxembourg Gardens in Autumn

The Jardin du Luxembourg may be my favorite park in all of Paris. With such close proximity to the Latin Quarter, it makes for the perfect stop after a day of wandering. After browsing the Abbey Bookshop, a charming English bookstore overflowing with used and new books, I headed over to the Jardin with a new book to read and a few hazelnut chocolate truffles to satisfy my constant, never ending chocolate cravings. The park’s tree lined walkways are spectacular and more colorful than ever this time of year, and the warm fall weather encourages both locals and tourists alike to relax in the sun for a bit and perhaps even sail a toy boat in the Grand Basin.
