The Jardin des Tuileries leads you from the Louvre to the Place de Concorde, in an ordered French formal style of wide tree lined promenades decorated with mirror ponds and sprouting ordered pathways.

As soon as it was opened to the public, and it was one of the first public parks in the world, it became a place to be seen and was way ahead of its time with deck chairs, a kiosk, café and public toilets in the 18th Century. These days it’s no less charming. In the 90’s new statues were added and the several large fountains re-furbished. Here you’ll often find a carousel, children sailing wooden boats and you’ll always see people strolling.
