Day 1 Paris – Jardin des Tuileries – 1st Arrondissement (Part 1 of 4)

Leaving the Place de la Concorde I headed into the Jardin des Tuileries (still no idea how to pronounce it…).

  • Cool buildings on the northern side (one day I’d love to live in one but I doubt I could ever afford it)

I enjoyed the garden as by this stage the sun had come out and was warming me up. Coming from Sydney, I’m not used to so many trees without leaves, but they looked kind of romantic laying on the path.

I could also make out the Musée d’Orsay on the other side of the river through the trees.

The gardens were created by Catherine de Medici 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.
