Take this in-app audio tour to explore an oasis of calm in Paris at your own pace! The Luxembourg Gardens lie in the middle of busy, bustling city. Constructed in 1612 by Queen Marie de Medici, the gardens are open to the public and have become one of the most popular in the city. If you want to escape the city's bustle, get some fresh air, and see one of the most striking embodiments of the Renaissance in architecture and garden art – you will enjoy this self-guided in-app audio tour of the green heart of Paris! With 4 million visitors per year, the gardens are a favorite with Parisians, a place to relax, read a book, catch some sun, have a quick nap, or just people-watch. Families love the park's playgrounds and traditional activities. Adults come here for sports and music in the summer and to enjoy the fresh air all year round. The Renaissance-style park was inspired by the Boboli Gardens in Florence, adapted in the inimitable French style, with clipped lawns, colorful landscaping, and extensive leisure activities. The crown jewel of the gardens is the famed Medici Fountain, the loveliest in Paris. Spend a few hours relaxing in the park with this audio tour, and escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
