The Tuilieres Garden was once the private property of kings and queens. While they say it has been newly renovated, I found it quite disappointing as gardens go. I disliked the dusty, gravelly paths and none of the plantings were anything to 'write home about'. However, there were some relaxing outdoor cafes in the park that offered great vantage points for people watching. I also liked the way the
path of the park leads your eye straight to the Place de la Concorde (where the Tour de France ended today; Yeah Lance!)
and the Champs-Elysees.
