Jardin de Tuileries

TuilleriesThe Tuileries garden is like a red carpet (or perhaps green) that flows from the Louvre.  One of my favorite activities in Paris is finding one of those reclining green chairs near a fountain, and plopping myself down for some period of time.  When I think about slowing down, and taking Paris in, this is the place that comes to mind.  Let’s take a stroll through the park tonight.

Here are some of my favorite spots you might encounter on your walk:

  • Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel
  • Carnival (Summer)
  • Orangerie
  • Place de la Concorde
  • Ponds
  • Blooming Flowers
  • Statues
  • Celebrities (I’ve seen one here)

    Love the picture with the swings (good idea), and the sculpture with the little Eiffel Tower in the background. It is always nice to get a glimpse of the tower in any photo of Paris, I think.
