The third sight in our Paris countdown is the Palace and gardens commissioned by Marie de’ Medicis.
#3 Jardin du Luxembourg
The romantic Jardin du Luxembourg is one of the largest public parks in Paris and well worth a visit, especially after a hectic day at the museum! Take your time as you meander through this garden, commissioned by Marie de’ Medicis (second wife of Henry IV), towards the Luxembourg Palace which houses the French Senate, and the famous Medicis Fountain.
