Tuileries & Reveries
I think it’s about time I tell you about my favourite neighbourhood in Paris..
The 8th arrondissement that is. In particular the Jardin des Tuileries which I went to every day while I was in Paris. And I mean it, every single day. hah
Not only is the “garden” beautiful by itself but it is also surrounded by a bunch of things I love. For starters, even though it was pretty cold while I was there (meaning: less tourists and therefore a very happy Carolina), there were so many people jogging! Next time I’m bringing my trainers to run amongst statues.. ha!
One of the main reasons why I love the Jardin des Tuileries so much is because of all the museums around it: the Louvre, l’Orangerie and my favourite, Musee d’Orsay. Yeah, you heard me, I did not say Louvre.. I also heard some great things about the Rodin museum but it was closed when i wanted to go.
The Musee d’Orsay is just across the river and I absolutely love it there. The atmosphere is just so peaceful and every time I go I find something new to be inspired by. However, if you’ve never been to the Musee de l’Orangerie I would definitely recommend it. Although fairly small, the first room (Nympheas room), with Monet’s art is just breathtaking! You can see it here but trust me, it’s way better in person..
One more thing to love about the neighbourhood? A magical sunset at Place de la Concorde..
À bientôt my friends! xx
