An address near the Latin Quarter- Résidence Luxembourg
3 Palais Jardin de Lux
 La Residence Luxembourg, a luxury one bedroom apartment in the 5th, is tucked away between the  Luxembourg Gardens  (which I traversed each day to attend classes at the Sorbonne ) and the dome of the Pantheon. The Latin Quarter,  whose streets and squares embody "old Paris" is filled with cafés, shops and galleries.


Statue Jardin de Lux

About 20,600 Vélib' bicycles are in service here, with more than 1,450 self-service rental stations. The stations are only some 300 yards apart, and there are four times as many as there are subway stations, even in a city so well served by its metro system.  Read on...
