The “Jardin du Luxembourg” is a beautiful place to visit in Paris. According to Wikipedia the gardens were created in 1612 by Marie de’ Medici the widow of King Henry IV of France.
We entered the garden at the most southern point, at the "Fontaine de l'Observatoire". What was cool about this perspective, is that we were passing through from one end to the other. At the very extremity was the Palace, where you may recall seeing miniature sail boats in the Medici Fountain. A really fun activity for the kids !
Furthermore, walking through the garden from south to north, brought a pleasant feeling and sense of labyrinth as we walked down the green rows. We noticed lots of green areas, beautiful gardens and colorful flowers. In terms of resting areas, there are two options. There are benches throughout the garden that offers shade. Otherwise, there are many chairs around the Medici Fountain directly under the sun.
There isn't much to do in the garden, however it's a nice place to visit and relax. You will find a little history, few statues a playground area, which offers a vintage carousel for children to enjoy.
