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.

Jardin des Tuileries Reviews
This was a trip down memory lane for my wife and I as we first visited the gardens in 1981. We were not disappointed and spent several hours walking around the wonderful gardens and tree shaded paths.... more »
Aspettative più che deluse... Dei giardini che potrebbero essere meravigliosi, sono lasciati alla noncuranza. Ghiaia che solleva un polverone al primo soffio di vento, alberi e cespugli coperti di pol... more »Expectations more than disappointed ... Of the grounds that might be wonderful, are left to carelessness. Gravel which raises a fuss at the first gust of wind, trees and bushes covered with dust, a few flowers and not treated, garbage on the ground (perhaps for a few bins as well as for the rudeness), but the worst thing is seeing people urinating on the walls , on trees and in bushes and the following smell invading the grounds. A disappointment.
I visited this gardens several times in the past but this time I had a purpose! I wanted to see the spot where one of my favourite bands recorded a video near the entrance from Place De La Concorde. Generally its a relaxing park with statues, ponds and trees. Very tranquil atmosphere overall.
One of the most beautiful gardens in Paris. I literally hang there every time I go in city. Facing the Louvre Museum, it’s one of most chill places in Paris. The only « problem » is that there is almost nothing to eat in the garden probably as it’s a historical place. You also should take a look on the edge of the river just on the left of the gardens cause it’s just LOVELY and peaceful. If you care about your shoes I advise to take some you don’t really care about cause they will be white and dusty in the end. Have a great time !
