"Sitting in the shade of the Tuilleres." Tuileries - Jardin des Tuileries Tip by Bela_LUng

Tuileries - Jardin des Tuileries, Paris: 81 reviews and 200 photos

From the Louvre museum, walk to the west along the sidewalks and paths into the Jardin des Tuilleres. The Jardin, whose first inception was in the late16th century by the order of Catherine de Medicis, did not establish itself as the beautiful gardens you see now, until the late 17th century when it was redesigned to be a showcase to the Palais des Tulieres which was burned to the ground in 1871.

Today the Jardin is a beautiful place where parisians and tourist alike come to take a break from the busy day. The Jardin is quite breathtaking and I suggets walking through it, and taking some time to explore its many interesting corners.
