A typical French style public garden, formal and symmetrical and full of statues, right in the heart of the city between the Louvre and the Place de la Concorde. A great place to eat a picnic lunch or just take a rest from the sightseeing. There is a big pond where kids can sail toy boats which I think can be rented nearby.
It's a beautiful park between Louvre and Palace de la Concorde.. We've seen many people doing sports, even playing football.. You see a stunning landscape design detailed with sculptures, pools fullfilled by sympathetic ducks, running around children, young, old people... A perfect place to have rest and my preferred..
The Jardin des Tuileries is slap bang in the city centre, along the Rue de Rivoli, linking up the Place de la Concorde and the Louvre.
Lots of chairs around if you need to sit down and take your weight off the ground. :) However, it seems from personal experience that you have a good chance of getting chatted up if you happen to be resting on a chair, some nice young french man will feel honour-bound to keep you company!!! :-)
Jardin des Tuileries
A beautiful parc between Louvre and Place de la Concorde, with lots of green, trees, water pools and nice cafés.
Here you can enjoy beautiful days, only hanging around and watching the people. You meet people from Paris taking their lunch, and of course tourists, holding on for some minutes between their sightseeing tours. A very romantic place!
Beautiful gardens with pools/fountains and sculptures at the foot of the Louvre. This is one of my favorite spots in Paris. It is much nicer in the spring/summer (more barren during the fall).
The Jardin des Tuileries is surrounded by the Louvre, the Seine, the Place de la Concorde and the Rue de Rivoli and it covers about 63 acres.
Spent ages here in November 2005 playing in the leaves. The biggest playground I've ever seen, and ice cream available as well !
The Jardin Tuileries is a wonderful spot to take a break from museum madness and touriste terrible. The colors, smells, fountains, all contribute to balance a visit to the Louvre.
This beautiful park - of 25 ha - is situated between the Louvre museum and the Place de la Concorde. The park is decorated with lots of statues.
Go to Jardin des Tuileries on a sunny morning. Walk through the sculptures and have a rest by the fountain. You won't regret it.
We walked from Notre Dame to the Eiffel Tower and these gardens were just spectacular. Neat as a pin, and full of romance - they are not to be missed.
That pic shows me and my friends Corny, whom I visited in Paris. The park just opposite of the Louvre is a relaxing place!
This museum houses 144 paintings, many by Renoir, Cezanne, Picasso, & Matisse. Monet's waterlily series can be found here. Open daily (with the exception of Tuesdays) from 9:45 a.m. to 5:15 p.m.
Paris is more than history.There is also a lot of attention for the world of today.A good example is this artwork by Bernar Venet at the Jardin des Tuileries.
Now part of the jardin des Tuileries what was once the posh entrance of the palace des Tuileries.Set on fire in 1871 by the Communards.
