Luxembourg Garden, what to do and info
Luxembourg Garden is one of the most important parks of Paris, together with the Tuileries. Even if you are not so into parks, it’s one of the attractions of Paris to visit, without any doubt.
This is a historical garden. It was inaugurated in 1612 from Maria de’ Medici and that is why you can admire the Fountain dedicated to her family. Plus, it is still one of the best places where you can take a break from the chaos of a huge city.
If you go to the Luxembourg Garden, you can admire many species of plants. Plus, there are many attractions like the Statue of Freedom made by Frédéric Bartholdi. Or, you can also take a look to the statues of very important personalities as Charles Baudelaire and Ludwig van Beethoven.
What’s the real plus of Luxembourg Garden, according to me? If you go there, you can play with little sailboats! You can play with toy boats around the Grand Bassin duck pond! Even this is historical since it is a 90 years old tradition!
