Why locals recommend it
Majestic park overlooking the Luxembourg Palace. A visit here is most enjoyable at any time of the year. So much to see: the ducks swimming in front of the enormous Medici Fountain, children sending an armada of small boats across the pond, the parade of sculptures of the queens of France, the manicured Palace gardens. Take a seat and enjoy the people-watching! You can also just relax, enjoy a sandwich or read a book (plenty of chairs and benches). To do some jogging this is also a great place! Free entrance.
Tips from locals
A 62 acres garden ideal for children where you can jog, play tennis or chess, or just hang out
A bowl of fresh air in the heart of Saint Germain with magnificent french gardens.
Just to walk, for early morning run, to seat on a bench and read, to get kids outdoor... At 5 minutes walk. Traditional kids playground; our kids were fans of the small wooden boats that you can rent, in the central bassin. Bees houses at the Vaugirard corner. Avoid on windy days.
It was created beginning in 1612 by Marie de' Medici, the widow of King Henry IV of France, for a new residence she constructed, the Luxembourg Palace.

“Emblematic building of the Latin quarter, the Pantheon is not only the last residence of France's great names - Voltaire, Victor Hugo, Jean Moulin, Simone Veil and other history makers are resting in peace here - this is also a very impressive piece of art to walk through. If you look up, you'll be awed by its 3-dome ceiling, letting a zenithal light coming in to exagerate the majestic view if the main room.”
