The Jardin des Tuileries is the quintessential French garden, with its verdant lawns, manicured rows of trees, and gravel paths, was designed by André Le Nôtre for Louis XIV. After the king moved his court to Versailles, in 1682, the Tuileries became the place for stylish Parisians to stroll.
Between the Louvre and Place de la Concorde, the gravelled alleyways of these gardens have been a chic promenade ever since they opened to the public in the 16th century; and the popular mood persists with the funfair that sets up along Rue de Rivoli side in Summer.
Being the Louvre the top spot to visit, it is the world’s largest museum and also most visited. It is a city within the city, a vast, multi-level maze of galleries, passageways, staircases and escalators. It’s famous for the artistic glories it contains within, but the very fabric of the museum is a masterpiece in itself – or rather, a collection of masterpieces modified and added to from one century to another.
