view toward rue de Rivoli
The Tuileries Gardens are where you go to rest your feet after a long, tiring day. That is not to say the gardens are not a prime destination in and of themselves. But the location is so central, it's impossible not to want to sit and rest there after walking Paris. They begin where the Louvre leaves off, and stretch all the way to Place de la Concorde.
Looking toward the Louvre and the Arc du Carrousel. You can rent a sailboat and push it with a stick around the fountain.
Many mythological figures overlook the Tuileries
There is always ice cream.
And lunch breaks.
