The Luxembourg Gardens is a private garden open to the public, located in the Sixth Arrondissement of Paris. Created from 1612 at the request of Marie de Medici, it has undergone a restoration led by the architect Jean-François-Thérèse Chalgrin under the First Empire
Garden full of charm, called 'Luco' remains, despite its prestige and grandeur, a garden area. It was attended by successive generations of Parisians, carrying in their adult lives the memories of racing sailboats on the central pool, pony rides, drop-candy in small wooden green huts (there exists seven) or swings that seemed gigantic. This beautiful French garden is also a museum of outdoor sculpture and educational place where you can learn the secrets of the tree culture and beekeeping.
It covers 23 hectares (21 open to the public) filled by flower beds and sculptures. Appointment favorite of Parisians, students or walkers, it also attracts visitors from around the world.
