Always a pleasure to amble (flanker) under the chestnut trees of the Tuileries. If you are tired after a morning at the Louvre, the Muse’ d’ Orsay, or shopping along the rue de Rivoli it is a lovely p...
Pseudo-antique sculptures and flowers for phlegmatic people, rides for choleric people.
The Tuileries was created by the will of the fatal Queen of France Catherine de ' Medici. After the absurd death of her husband Henry II in a tournament, the Medici moved from the Tournelle Palace on ...
The Tuileries Garden is located along the banks of the Seine and looks impressive from a glance, featuring exquisite statues throughout the garden that have all come from the hands of famous French sculptors, hence its nickname "open-air museum". Among them, works of "father of French modern sculpture" Auguste Rodin including "The Kiss", "Eve", "The Shade" and "The Thinker" are worth a visit, although some are replicas.

So yesterday we were blessed with some snow in the city and I could not miss this opportunity to finally capture the Tuileries Garden under a snow blanket ! It is the first time I was able to take snow shots here because the Garden is usually close when it is snowing too much like in 2018 ! I am pretty happy with the pictures I got for this morning session ! Let me know your favorite one !
Tuileries Garden, Paris - France: This is large public park with beatiful view and colorful flowers. This is good for taking a walk or going for a picnic. The green chairs by the water seems to be a signature of this place and good for instagramable.
From the Louvre, it is the Tuileries Garden. The Tuileries Garden was originally the garden of the Tuileries Palace. It was originally an Italian garden. After the fire was burned, it was changed to a French garden. There are not many visitors to the phoenix tree on both sides of the garden, but it is a place for many movies.
Going further to the Place de la Concorde, the most eye-catching is the Egyptian obelisk, where many historical times have taken place, and many French military parades are held here.
After all the way to the Alexandre III Bridge, this is the most gorgeous bridge on the Seine. There are many beautiful carvings on the bridge. This was donated to France by Russian Tsar Nicholas II as a gift of French-Russian goodwill, and was named after the father of Nicholas II, Alexander III. The Alexandre III Bridge, completed in 1900, can accommodate two-way six-lane and two-sided sidewalks, and is basically flat on both sides of the road, without affecting the riverside landscape.
From the Louvre, if you take these places slowly for a long time, it is quite pleasant, then go to the Champs Elysees just for an afternoon tea, haha.
