The Tuileries Gardens are located in Paris' first arrondissement, in between the Louvre and the Place de la Concorde. Running parallel to Rue de Rivoli and the Seine River, this is the oldest and biggest Parisian garden, which has now been declared a World Heritage site by Unesco. The gardens take their name from the old tile factories built in the same location before the 16th Century, 'tuile' being the French word for 'tile'. During this period, Catherine de Médicis replaced the factories with the 'Tuileries Palace', which is no longer there. André le Nôtre transformed the site, giving it the unique perspective of a long garden organised around a magnificent principal promenade bordered with beautiful trees. Today, the gardens' great lawns supplemented with ponds and a collection of statues by Rodin, Giacometti and Maillol, welcome tourists from Paris and the world alike. The gardens are found on the Axe Historique that passes from the Louvre's Pyramid, via the Concorde, the Champs Elysées, the Arc de Triomphe and finishing at the Grande Arche de la Défense. Across the river can be seen the Musée d'Orsay, which contains an incomparable collection of impressionist artwork. The western corners of the garden house the Musée de l'Orangerie, with Claude Monet's famous water-lilies and a remarkable collection of works by Cézanne, Renoir, Picasso and Matisse, and the Jeu de Paume, an exposition site of photography and image. Each Summer a carnival is held by Rue de Rivoli, with a huge Ferris wheel that offers a beautiful view of Paris.Enjoy an hour's pause between our City Tour and our audio guided visit of the Louvre Museum to stroll along the Tuileries Gardens, located just in front of our agency.
