Les Tuileries Gardens are part of a spectacular Paris perspective: they connect the Louvre Palace to Arc de Triomphe on a 5 kilometer straight line that goes through Place de la Concorde and Champs Elysees.
A five century long effort by the Kings of France to embellish their Louvre Palace and the city of Paris.
There is one good open air restaurant in Les Tuileries Gardens: Saut du Loup. There are in addition a few kiosks (Paul) and Cafes. Besides the Louvre Museum, Les Tuileries Gardens feature two smaller museums: the Orangerie, famous for its Monet's water lilies and Jeu de Paume. The Tuileries Gardens are also a central hotel district, a good starting point to visit Paris.
