Located on the border between Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the Latin Quarter, the Luxembourg Gardens were created upon the initiative of Queen Marie de Medici in 1612. They are today, the favourite gardens of the Parisians on the Left Bank of Paris. The gardens, which cover 25 hectares of land, are split into French gardens and English gardens. Between the two, lies a geometric forest and a large pond, where generations of Parisian children played with sailing boats. With 106 statues spread throughout the park, including a version of the Statue of Liberty and the statues of the queens of France, the gardens offer a variety of works of art and are the home of the Luxembourg Museum, the oldest major fine arts museum in France. The beautiful Luxembourg Palace, the former Palace of the queen, with its classical architecture from the 17th century, is now the home of the French Senate. Exploring the gardens allows us to discover other various impressive buildings such as the Orangerie, a greenhouse and the monumental and recently renovated Medici fountain. Join Florent and stroll with him in his favourite gardens of the Left Bank!
It's an understatement to say Florent knows Paris. Born in this wonderful city, Florent says he confidently knows every nook and cranny. Having completed over 2000 tours, we believe him. He's a self-declared history, art, and archaeology fan. What he loves most is sharing the best parts (and secrets) of Paris with you! “In French, if you add two letters to Paris, it becomes Paradis (Paradise in English)” he laughs. And paradise, it truly is. Be it exploring Paris' gastronomical delights or catching an auction, walking along the River Seine (which Florent gallantly swam), exploring spots where Hemingway lived or its sprawling gardens, Florent takes you on an exciting tour through his favorite city. “I love sharing my discoveries, explaining the boisterous history of Paris and showing places that are very hard to find otherwise, and of course getting to know new people every day!” Florent says.
