Things to see in Jardin des Tuileries
Tuileries Garden in Paris was originally commissioned by Catherine de Medicis, and it mirrored and improved upon other Renaissance gardens from around Europe. The Jardin des Tuileries has expanded over time and prospered under different architects and rulers.
The attraction is famed throughout France for the stunning stone and marble statues which adorn it. The statue of Renommée riding Pegasus by Coysevox at the Jardin des Tuileries western entrance is perhaps the most iconic, although the park also has work by Rodin, Barrias and Lévêque.
The Tuileries Garden in Paris is also home to The Orangerie, which has displayed part of the world famous Water Lilies series by Claude Monet since 1927. After seeing the paintings holidaymakers can visit the garden's fountains or walk in the shadows of its decades old trees.
