Le The Luxembourg Garden is located on the edge of the Latin Quarter, about 15 minutes walk from the Hotel du Levant as you can see on this map. It is inspired by the Florentine garden Boboli.

A geometric forest and a large basin delineate the two parts. Like the neighbourhood in which it is located, the Luxembourg gardens offers a wide range of activities for everyone.
