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 Edition.

  • This huge park is such a gem, full of great art and sculpture, flowers and trees, even bee hives! Tennis courts, ponds with kids floating boats, and lots of chairs and benches for sitting in the sun....  more

  • A beautiful park great for people watching, cute toy sailboats in pond. Lots of chess players and good seating near pond to sit and relax. Pretty fountains and beautiful flowers and trees.

  • Huge park in Paris. Just love the place! Very impressive the way the trees are trimmed and lined up. They look like enormous hedges. Public restrooms were usable and actually had toilet seats. This will make sense to anyone who has visited France before!
  • It might be beautiful in some other season of the year, or when it is specifically decorated for people, but I visited in July, I did not find it very worthy to spend an hour here. Only if you want to take some rest while exploring the city, definitely you can find a chair beneath a shade and just rest for some time.
  • Nice garden in Paris to visit on a weekend. It is specially nice for kids to play with little sailing boats on the central fountain. Don’t go there wearing black shoes or trousers, they’ll get all dusty and dirty because of the park white soil. Better to wear clear colours if you visit here.
  • Astonishing place to visit. Huge park made for everyone! From the earliest age to the older generation, there's so much for all to do and absorb. Being in the nature while still being in the big amazing city of Paris. You can sit down, get some sun, have a coffee, read and go close to the lake and admire the beauty of it and all the statues and monuments surrounding it. Really a place I'd spend a lot of my time in if I lived in Paris!
  • This is another great photo opportunity if you are looking for some local park photos and there are always so many dogs being walked around these parks. There is a lovely water feature in the middle and it has some public deck chairs where you can look to have some time by the centre of the park and enjoy the park as you people watch. I would definitely recommend. Will be returning.
