It's a nice looking palace, but couldn't go in so there isn't much to see. There is a garden outside, but that's another item in Tripadvisor.

Nice for a little afternoon break, the Luxemburg Gardens were close to my hotel and St. Sulpice. Nice place to stroll around and just relax. Small café where you can grab a coffee or cold drink.

This 400 year old building, also serves some of the French Senate's "official" needs, Originally built as a "Royal Palace", it still has a "Royal Character". The architecture of the building... and the associated magnificent well designed gardens makes it DEFINITELY WORTH a visit!!

The ‪Luxembourg Palace‬, with the gardens around it, is one of the most beautiful places in Paris, perfect for a stroll or a picnic.

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is
dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented

The garden is free, there is no charge to walk through the gardens. The actual Palace is the offices of the French Senate, I do not think you can access the building, but we did not go into the building.
