In the heart of the Left Bank, Luxembourg Gardens is arguably the loveliest park in Paris, with lush lawns radiating out from a pond centerpiece. Inspired by the Boboli Gardens of Florence, these gardens were created in 1612 by Queen Marie de Medici. Whether you're by yourself or with a whole group, this park is a relaxing reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the city. You can watch locals play the legendary French game of boules or simply stroll past over 100 distinct statues. Luxembourg Gardens is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Paris Edition.

C'est très différent de ce que tu connais des parcs anglais, ici géométrie maîtrise tout l'espace, c'est très beau, très français, il faut venir ici absolument. Je l'aime ! more »It's very different from what you know about English parks, here geometry masters all the space, it's very beautiful, very French, you have to come here absolutely. I love him!
Local encantador, repousante mas pulsante de energia e vida. Um lago no centro do Jardim se presta aos pequenos barcos de aluguel, com ou sem controle remoto, que são alugados no local. more »Lovely, restful but pulsating place of energy and life. A lake in the center of the Garden lends itself to small rental boats, with or without remote control, which are rented on site.
What an amazing Gardens. When I went there it was bright and sunny and the flowers looked amazing. I noticed that there were certain areas being worked on, but that did not distract us from relaxing here after long walks. Go buy a nice baguettes and some cheese and enjoy a small picnic on the tables there. I would highly recommend this place.
A much needed large public garden with lot of statues everywhere. Nice to visit to bask in sunlight. Lot of ad shoots happen in this garden with models flaunting their best dresses.
