Tuileries Gardens, Paris

Paris is a green city thanks to her many 19th century tree lined boulevards, famous gardens and large parks. Luxembourg Gardens on the left bank and Tuileries Gardens near the Louvre are must do. To get out of the beaten track, try 19th century Parc Montsouris, Buttes Chaumont or 18th century Parc Monceau. Lovely. Very parisian. Few tourists. Paris gardens map.

Romantic Paris gardens

Parisians love the romantic Luxembourg Gardens. The classical Tuileries Gardens are part of the famous triumphal way from the Louvre Museum to the Arc de Triomphe.

Place des Vosges, Parc de Bercy, Parc des Buttes Chaumont (Paris map), Parc Monceau (Paris map) and Parc Montsouris (Paris map) are great Paris gardens too. The Giverny Gardens near Paris may be the most famous of all through their link with impressionist painter Claude Monet.

Paris parks and forests

The Bois de Boulogne and Bois de Vincennes are large and pleasant parks in Paris with many first class attractions including the Fondation Louis Vuitton and Paris Zoo.

The magnificent royal Versailles Gardens are the perfect example of 17th century French parks around Paris.

We love the large Compiegne and Fontainebleau forests. These royal forests attract many Parisians for hiking, cycling and horse riding during a day or a weekend. Both feature a spectacular royal castle and other top attractions.

Versailles Gardens are a great complement to Versailles
