Think of the Tuileries as the Central Park of Paris. It's a great place to bring lunch and sit down on the grass to rest and eat. There are little shops nearby; a special one is filled with merry-go-rounds that play music as they twirl; these make the best Paris-gifts!

Very large gardens right by the louvre. Nice for a stroll. It was winter but there were still plenty of people around. Nice sculptures all around

Jardin de Tuileries is a nice place to stop and visit when walking across the city. The gardens separate the Louvre from Place de la Concorde. The Musée de l’Orangerie, with works of Monet, is located nearby. The gardens got their name from the tile factories that used to stand on the site where Queen Catherine de Medici built the... More

This is a great place for a morning run if you are staying on the north side of the river. The surfaces are both paved concrete and hardpacked sand, so you can choose which surface you like to run on. I didn't care about the ferris wheel, so I don't know what that experience is like, but it has to... More

There was a fun carnival going on on the side closest to the Westin, which was really neat. Some things were lost in translation or maybe it was our horrible french, and we accidentally paid less than the price of the waffle. It was all good though.

A nice open area for running while site seeing. Adjacent to the Louvre and 1km to the Opera with loads of shopping nearby.

The structure of the gardens let you know that there is plenty to see when the season is right. Unfortunately, we went when it was cold and there really was not color, scents, or flowers to take in. If you time it right, it would be a magnificent stop.

Daybreak at the Tuilleries in December was breathtaking. Hardly anyone else present - a few couples, some people walking their dogs. With the sun behind rising behind the bare, manicured trees, my companion and I felt as if we were in another world, far from the noisy, busy Paris of the daytime. We stayed until the opening of l'Orangerie Museum,... More

I took the metro to the Louvre and then headed to the Tuileries. Beautiful gardens to stroll through. Visited in October 2013. It wasn't a warm day, but a fall day. Still nice to enjoy the peaceful setting provided. Located between the Louvre and L'Orangerie museums. There are some cafes also in the garden setting. Some benches to sit on... More
