Garden Nature / Park
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.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.

  • Very nice garden .. Big enough though a french friend of mine insists is not that big :p Visited it three times during my stay in Paris. French people visit this beautiful garden for a variety of reasons: exercise and practicing sports like tennis for example (there are indeed several tennis courts), walking and walking their pets, relaxing on very comfortable chairs, reading. Bottom line: Luxembourg Gardens are worth at least one visit :)
  • I went here on a lovely sunny day, and it was beautiful.. it had a lot of locals enjoying the sun, and also tourist like me wondering around and taking photos. It's a well looked after gardens with plenty of space of everyone to enjoy and relax
  • Great place to have a picnic and people watch. Perfectly manicured grass that make sleeping in a park seem like a reasonable life choice. The lawns are well kept and people are only allowed on the southernmost lawn facing the front. Gardens close at 2100h at which point the park guardians go to town with their issued whistles.
  • Beautiful to walk through during the day, or enjoy a baguette picnic lunch. Sadly, the gates are closed during the early morning so your morning runs will be around the gates - lots of Parisian runners to keep you company though! There seems to be an unspoken 'no one on the grass' rule, so people only sit on the chairs provided in the gravel areas - a concept foreign to most Australians. A bit weird to bask in the sun and not be lying down on the grass with your eyes closed. Still a lovely place.
  • Very beautiful area and very spacious. Unfortunately I was limited on time and was not able to explore it completely but the parts I saw were great. Would definitely come here often as a local.
