Medici Fountain


I agree with Virginia on her Paris Through my Lens blog when she says that the Medici Fountain in the Jardin du Luxembourg is a "must see" in Paris. The whole garden is absolutely beautifull and this fountain is a kind of magic romantic spot in the garden.
I used to work just outside this place and come for lunch here as soon as the weather was good enough.

Moi, j'aime aussi la Fontaine des Médicis! Avec ses petits canards, son miroir d'eau... C'est un petit coin du paradis parisien...

I love this fountain and took a ton of photos when I was there. I'll be back in October and will be staying nearby so I'm sure I'll be taking lots more.

This is one of my favorite spots in Paris. You are so right, it does have a sort of magical quality. Wish I could stand there right now!

Hi I just came over via Paris Through My Lens... I have just been to Paris to Cat Sit, (great job) and meet up with lots of friends and bloggers.

I am going to be a cheeky and ask if you have a photo of Medici Fountain that I could use on my blog, that is one of the photos that didn;t come out :-( cannot believe it, looked good when I took it. Thanks hope to hear soon.


I am doing my posts at the moment, I had the most awesome time, hightlight, was a Picnic on the Seine organized by my friend Leesa!
