Jardin des Tuileries, Paris

4.4
#4 of 50 in Parks in Paris
Garden Nature / Park
Separating the Louvre from Place de la Concorde, Jardin des Tuileries are semi-formal French gardens that have survived centuries. Catherine de Medici created them in 1564, and they were revamped 100 years later. The gardens serve as a cultural walking space, where Maillol statues complement those by Rodin and Giacometti. To relax, go towards one of the benches at either of the two ponds, where people drive model boats on the water. For a quick snack, stop at one of the cafes, ice cream shops, or crépe stalls surrounding the space. The low cut of the impeccably manicured hedges around the statues allow you to photograph each one in full sunlight.

  • Once again walk in these gardens and Park in front of the pond. What can I say. Awesome place like garden, admirable Louvre buildings. A short walk one of the world's most important museums, bars, restaurants, shops. Soothing. A wonderful way of loafing

  • Very good and nice and clean park to be. Chair for everyone and you can sit under the tree's if you want, hide from the sun. Nice place to eat snacks. There was also theme park in june, don't know how long it will be there :)
  • This is a wonderful place to picnic with a bottle of wine at sunset! It's a popular spot but for good reason! Grab a blanket or table cloth (the vinyl kind keep you dry if the ground/grass is a bit damp) at a market, pop into the grocery store for meats, cheeses, and fresh bread (a must in your in France!). Also, I had a collapsible wine pouch and silicone cups; lighter in weight and they won't break! Don't forget your wine key! When in Paris picnic like a Parisian! #wheninparis
  • Fantastic gardens with lots of fountains and artwork. The lounge chairs are the best for sitting. Be aware that you can't walk on the grass. There are some places close to the Louvre where you can sit on the grass but they are in full sun.
  • Love Tuileries. It comes alive specially in the summer with the fairgrounds. Perfect place for a weekend picnic and some rides after.
  • It's the Tuileries, after all. Too many people for me on the weekends, and some of them just don't understand why they have to give up the metal chair on which they have put their feet so you can sit down. But otherwise it's beautiful. Oh, and the gentlemen walking by themselves and looking at others by the Orangerie? Don't worry -- they've been doing that since the 16th century, dear.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
