Discover the joyful green of the most Florentine of the Queens of France and, together with your guide, relive the garden's history.

You will never grow tired of discovering and rediscovering the 23 hectares of this luxuriant garden and its sculptures, miniature model sailing boats, intimate concerts in the gazebo, carousels, famous fountains, beehives, and majestic trees. In the springtime, centuries-old orange trees line the paths alongside the garden’s statues and surround the Palais du Luxembourg (Luxembourg Palace), imparting an exotic fragrance to the lawn where countless species of flowers blossom. It is undoubtedly one of the best places to roam and stroll around in when in Paris!
