Jardins des Tuileries

113 rue de Rivoli, 75001, Paris and probably one of my favourite places to walk.
Access by Metro 1 is the easiest (Concorde or Les Tuileries metro station) will give you access to the gardens.

A few cafe’s can be found, ponds, impressive statues, birds and ducks, tourists as well as locals sitting on the benches and chairs sunbathing, quiet areas filled by couples and picturesque moments just waiting to be captured.

One of the better known ‘Jardins’ because of its location.
Between the Louvre Museum and La Place de la Concorde at the other end.


Alors, un peu d’histoire! (From Wikipedia) 

Created by Catherine de Medicis (Italian noblewoman who married King Henri II at the age of 14) as the garden of the Tuileries Palace in 1564, it was eventually opened to the public in 1667, and became a public park after the French Revolution.
In the 19th and 20th century, it was the place where Parisians celebrated, met, promenaded, and relaxed.

Last Saturday, on my way home, I decided to take 10 minutes in the park and enjoy the sun (which was out in full force) and the pink blooms which I’m in LOVE with.

And why not take a few photos while i’m at it?
