Unwind and Relax in the Tuileries Gardens

Large arrow left

Before the French Revolution, this beautiful park used to be the site of the Royal Palace. Today, visitors can enjoy fresh air, flourishing fountains and elaborately landscaped gardens. We recommend taking a moment to relax and soak in the scenery.

If you've never been to Tuileries Garden you may be surprised to find that there isn't as much greenery as its name suggests. In fact, it's overwhelmingly gravel, stones and statues. Despite its lack of vegetation though its an excellent place to stop and rest after a long afternoon cooped up inside the Métro or at nearby museums like the Louvre and Musée d'Orsay.

There are metal chairs available for visitors. Most are congregated around ponds where you can enjoy your book or a snack while taking in the view. We highly recommend a cup of mulled wine if you're here during the chilly months.

Whenever you come though, we recommend you don't wear your finest shoes as the ground is gravel and your kicks can get quite dusty.
