Tour Luxembourg Gardens & Play Petanque

Stroll inside the Luxembourg Gardens park, home of the French Senate, with its peaceful French-style gardens, or “jardins à la française,” and its statues (including a replica of the Statue of Liberty). Learn about Paris history while observing local Parisians soaking up the sun and children pushing their vintage wooden sailboats on the pond.

Your personal tour guide also takes you to any current exhibition at the Orangerie art gallery.

This great outdoor activity winds up in what was once the luxurious backyard of a French queen with a fun and playful initiation to a French ball game known as PÉTANQUE.
