The Tuileries garden is one of the oldest parks in Paris. Modèle des jardins dits « à la française », il doit son aspect actuel à André Le Nôtre, qui s’était déjà illustré à Vaux le Vicomte then who will realize the gardens of the Palace of Versailles.
The Tuileries is one of the most beautiful parks in Paris. Ideally located, it is a good place to rest after a stroll in one of the surrounding museums (the Louvre, Orsay or the Orangery) or after the descent of the Champs Elysées. If it is not the richest Parisian park in activities for children (no clowning, no ponies...), but its very central location makes it a very pleasant haven of peace for a lunch break or snack for example.
