Description

The Jardin de Tuileries is the largest park in the city. It is 1 kilometer long. The garden is in the center of Paris, boasting a nice landscape and an abundance of works of art.

The Jardin de Tuileries is a French styled pleasure garden and you can walk its paths with the views extending from the Louvre to the Arc de Triomphe. Trees line its lanes and you can see flower bushes and floral arrangements around.

Many statues of famous people are in the Jardin de Tuileries, accompanied by the statues of creatures from myths. Take a look at the richly-decorated Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel. The reliefs illustrate victories of Napoleon Bonaparte, while the figures adorning the tops of the columns illustrate the corps of his army.

In summer, the children can enjoy a fun park at the northern edge of the garden. The Ferris wheel offers an engaging ride and marvelous views.

Once, the 4th wing of the Louvre existed here, known as the Tuileries Palace. What remains of it houses two museums. The Musee de l'Orangerie displays works of art by famous artists, while the Jeu de Paume is a photography art center.

River Seine

The Seine River, which bisects the city, is a water corridor lined with most top tourist attractions in Paris. The river is a thoroughfare as much as a leisure area, with many water buses and cruisers sailing in both directions. Thus, you can discover much of Paris by following the flow.
