A real Parisian favorite, the Luxembourg gardens are a beautiful 25 hectares green oasis on Paris fashionable left bank.

Spread with statues, fountains and flowers, the Luxembourg gardens have many attractions for children: ponies, merry-go-round, puppet shows.

They are constantly animated by students, children, lovers, outdoor chess and tennis players.

The Luxembourg palace in Luxembourg gardens was built in the 17th century by Marie de Medicis, a French Queen, on the model of Palazzo Pitti in her native Florence.

Near-by Luxembourg gardens, the traditional student district called "Quartier Latin" was the stage of the 1968 student riots which shaked traditional French society.

With the Sorbonne university and the Odeon theater as landmarks, the Luxembourg gardens area is now a very beautiful and pleasant district of Paris.
