After getting ample rest, the next day Reza and I were ready to hit the museums. On the way to the first museum for the day, he led me to the Tuileries Garden, a massive park located between Plaza de la Concorde and the Louvre — a former royal garden turned public park, post the French revolution.
From the Tuileries station, we walked towards the large and unmissable pond located in the middle of the park. Surrounding the pond were large statutes involving human and mythical creatures, some capable of making you go WTF?
Case in point:
Took me a while to figure out what was happening. Tch tch. Asna would disapprove!
Anyway, I think this is a good place to chill. While exploring the city, tired elders can chup a seat and get some rest, while kids can run around the spacious park. Beautiful in winter, I bet even more in spring or fall.
We walked straight ahead, climbed some stairs and walked some more until we saw our destination across the Seine river, Musee d’Orsay.
Here’s the location of Tuileries Garden:
