The Tuileries Garden was created in 1564 by Catherine de Medici as the gardens for the Tuileries Palace. It was first opened to the public in 1667, and became a public park after the French Revolution. Today it is the place where Parisians and tourists alike come to meet, promenade and relax. What better way to recharge the batteries than spending a bit of time on the iconic green chairs, staring into space and smiling at the Eiffel in the distance. Wish I was there…..
