Would you like to go and see the Jardin des Tuileries? It really is a masterpiece of French garden design. It was the brainchild of André Le Nôtre, and is not to be missed. To make sure that your trip is a success right from the start, you should book your parking in advance! Save yourself the stressful scouring of Paris’ streets looking for somewhere to park - plus parking in Paris isn’t real ideal anyway, as you even if you do manage to find a free space you can only park there for a maximum of two hours.. it’s just not enough time! So reserve your space in advance, so you can be parked exactly where you want for however long you want!
After the French Revolution, the Jardins des Tuileries were opened to the public, and even two world wars couldn't ruin the beauty of these gardens. After the war the gardens were restored and became a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can find this historic garden in Paris’ 1st arrondissement, and it extends over 25 hectares along the Seine from the Louvre in the east to the Place de la Concorde in the west.
The largest and oldest gardens in Paris has just so much to offer! Stroll through the park admiring the 20th century artwork like ‘The Kiss’ by Auguste Rodin and the ‘Good Samaritan’ by François-Léon Sicard. Relax and sunbathe by one of the two large ponds or perhaps stroll along the lawn after a picnic.
Want to see even more? Well how about the Musée de l’Orangerie? In this gallery, you can experience the countless Impressionist and Post-Impressionist pieces. You’ll even get to see Claude Monet’s ‘Water Lilies’.
Like your art more modern, do you? You should definitely check out the National Gallery Jeu de Paume, it features a wide range of art - from photos to videos.
Every Summer, the Fêtes des Tuileries takes place in the Jardin des Tuileries. Here there is over 60 things to do, or taste! From crêpes, to candy floss to sandwiches - there’s something for everyone!
Book a parking space and enjoy Paris!
