- A visit to the Luxembourg Palace (completed in 1627) provides a feast for the eyes, highlighting both history and exquisite art in a natural setting. To begin with there are paintings by Rubens and fine works by Delacroix. Historically the area is interesting because during the French Revolution it was a prison and today it is home to the national Senate. Luxembourg Palace Gardens is really an extensive park filled with all types of flowers, plants, shrubs immaculately landscaped to create an Edenesque environment. The setting is perfect for a fun day out and depending on the weather you can rent a small boat on one of the ponds. Or simply, as a visitor, you can enjoy all of the historic statuary recalling France of past eras.
