Tuileries - Jardin des Tuileries, Paris: 81 reviews and 200 photos
Behind the Louvre, right behind the Arc de Triomphe du Carroussel, you´ll find a huge parc called Jardins (gardens) des Tuileries. This is one of the oldest public parcs of the city, and also one of the nicests. This used to be the royal garden belonging to the inhabitants of the Louvre, but after the leaders of France left the Louvre and moved towards Versailles, the gardens were transformed into public area.
The gardens are a perfect example of France gardening: lots of symmetry, straight lines and geometrical shapes. In the centre of the parc there are two round ponds that really are the centre of the happening. Little boats are rented for children and the people of Paris come here to read their newspaper and to enjoy the sun.
From the Jardins des Tuileries you have a magnificent view all over Paris: the Louvre, Champs-Elysees, Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, Place de la Concorde, and so on.
In summertime there is a fairground at the northside of the parc, with a huge ferris wheel as major attraction.
