Full description

Take a break from the hustling and bustling streets of Paris and join us on a relaxing walk through the beautiful Luxembourg Gardens. Explore the fabulous green areas with trees, flower beds and stunning sculptures, and immerse yourself in French history and culture.

During the 2-hour tour you explore the fabulous Luxembourg Gardens. This green, urban oasis is deeply connected to the history of Paris, as it was created upon the initiative of Queen Marie de Medici after the assassination of Henri IV. The showpiece of the gardens is of course the magnificent Luxembourg Palace, a formal royal residence now housing the French Senate. Nowadays, the 60-acre park is a popular hanging out spot for Parisians, known for extraordinary public amenities. You will enter the park through the entrance next to Musée du Luxembourg, the oldest contemporary art museum.

Take a stroll through the fabulous gardens inspired by the Boboli Gardens in Florence. See some of the 106 statues spread throughout the park, such as the Chopin Statue, Statue of Liberty and bronze figure of ‘David, winner of Goliath’. Walk past the Pavillon Davioud and enjoy the large green space with ponds as well as French and English gardens. See also the historic, decorative Marie De Medicis Fountain with Italian-style statues. The tour will end at the Place du Pantheon square, featuring spectacular monuments such as Panthéon, Pantheon-Sorbonne University, Bibliothèque Sainte-Geneviève and the ornate Saint-Étienne-du-Mont church.

Choose the 3-hour tour to also visit the Panthéon, an 18th century mausoleum with colonnaded facade inspired by the Panthéon of Agrippa in Rome. It was first commissioned by King Louis XV as a church dedicated to Saint Geneviève. Enter the building with skip-the-line tickets to avoid long waiting lines, and discover a crypt with tombs of great French writers, scientists, generals, churchmen and politicians. Among some of the famous people buried here, you will find Victor Hugo, Voltaire and Marie Curie Sklodowska. It is a great way to learn more about the historic, cultural and scientific legacy of French men and women.
