Jardin du Luxembourg

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   Jardin du Luxembourg
Jardin du Luxembourg
I just returned from a wonderful trip to Paris and Amsterdam. The Luxembourg Gardens cover 60 acres in the heart of the left bank in Paris. The Luxembourg Palace has been used as a royal palace, a prison (briefly), and in World War II it was the headquarters of the Luftwaffe. It is now the home of the French Senate. It was designed by Salomon de Brosse, who built it in the style of the Pitti Palace in Florence, and was completed in 1631.
