It is situated in the great Garden of Luxembourg and is currently the seat of the French Senate. It is free entry, but controlled access, and only being able to visit on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays, as long as the Senate is not in work.
リュクサンブール公園に面して建っている宮殿です。以前はフランス政府の元老院の議事堂として使われていたそうです。また、ナポレオン・ボナパルトの王座などもある歴史の舞台にも出てくる建物です。近くに寄っていくと小銃を持った兵隊か警察官がとこちらを威嚇するような厳重な警備をしていました。 more »This palace faces the Luxembourg Park. It used to be used as a capitol of the French government's Senate. In addition, it is a building that appears on the stage of history, such as the throne of Napoleon Bonaparte. When I approached, soldiers or police officers with rifles were on tight security to threaten us.
Beautiful landscape, touring the garden area is a must! But be wary of doing so on a sunny day, it will be busy for sure! I went when it was slightly rainy and cloudy, and while there were still a lot of people it wasn't too bad. Not sure if you're allowed to have picnics here - certainly no one was stopping for a meal when I was there - but it would be a great place to relax over lunch.
Beautiful but beaware of of going in the rain. Will destroy your shoes. However there are a few nice pavilions to take shelter in. Check out the fountain, it really is lovely. Across the street there's several good cafes with a view of then palace.
