The Luxembourg Palace (French: Palais du Luxembourg, pronounced [pa.lɛ dy lyk.sɑ̃.buːʁ]) is located at 15 Rue de Vaugirard in the 6th arrondissement of Paris. It was originally built (1615–1645) to the designs of the French architect Salomon de Brosse to be the royal residence of the regent Marie de' Medici, mother of King Louis XIII. After the Revolution it was refashioned (1799–1805) by Jean Chalgrin into a legislative building and subsequently greatly enlarged and remodeled (1835–1856) by Alphonse de Gisors. Since 1958 it has been the seat of the Senate of the Fifth Republic.
Beautiful place to relax. The grounds are extremely well maintained.
The park is stunning. Escape from the city but still inside. Lovely for kids, reading books, little boats for kids to hire €4 to play with in the pond.
Great place for a leisurely walk and a break from the busy streets.
Long queue. But it's free on European heritage day. I side decoration is magnificent and luxury. Visit the library
the park is huge and beautiful. I was in January, and I can only imagine how it is beautiful when it is spring or summer. The park is very safe. You have public toilet (very clean like others in beautiful Paris)
