The Tuileries Garden was created by Catherine de Medicis as the garden of the Tuileries Palace in 1564 and opened to the public a century later.
Today, the Tuileries is where Parisians celebrate, meet, stroll, and relax.
This is the real Paris. This is how Parisians live and you can enjoy life as Parisians do whilst experiencing the magnificent carefully manicured landscape, which comes to life on a sunny Paris day.
A true open-air museum, statues of Maillol stand alongside those of Henry Moore, Rodin, and Giacometti. Its two viewing pools are a delightful oasis for a break during a jog or stroll. They are relaxing to see the water or watch children sail small boats on them. Small wooden houses under the trees also sell refreshments so one can sip and savor all of life in Paris.
