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.

Even though it was Autumn, there were still flowers out and the trees were turning autumn colours. Nice to walk through, with interesting statues and nice surrounding buildings and area. A restful place to sit and contemplate, and watch the world go by.
