THE TUILERIES GARDEN
Located between the Palais du Louvre and the Place de la Concorde, the Tuileries Garden is a must-see when you visit Paris.
A FRENCH-STYLE STROLL
A walk through the Tuileries Garden is the perfect way to soak in all of the elegance of French architecture. The Garden is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site. Its highly classical arrangement is also home to a modern art museum, to the Orangerie museum, and to contemporary art collections.
Created in 1553 at the site of a former tile-works, it was the park of the Tuileries palace that formerly stood here, home to Catherine de' Medici. It is the oldest and most typical French garden in Paris. Its main walkway extends between two ponds. Two vast terraces frame the garden and offer beautiful viewpoints. The terrace along the water is part of the Orangerie Museum. The Feuillants Terrace is part of the Galerie Nationale du Jeu de Paume. The side paths are bordered with pruned trees, and the children's play areas take nothing away from the beauty of the landscape. You can walk between famous Rodin and Maillol sculptures, and enjoy the attractions of the funfair every summer.Visit the Jardin des Tuileries website
