The 21 hectares of green spaces around Palais du Luxembourg were opened to the public around 1780.

Beautifully adorned with statues and a grand basin, Jardin du Luxembourg has a quite formal layout with perpendicular alleys.

During the summer months and non only, the green park is attracting many students and young persons coming here to spend a little time to play tennis or just have a pleasant walk.

Straight ahead, entrance from Boulevard Saint-Michel, a wonderful view of Tour Montparnasse can be admired.

Address: Rue de Médicis, 75006 Paris
