When I think of Paris, one of the first things that comes to mind is the Jardin des Tuileries. Located between the Place de la Concorde and the Louvre Museum you are bound to run into this Garden and Ferris Wheel when touring the city! Seeing countless instagram and blog posts about the view from the Ferris Wheel, going on it was a MUST for me when I was in Paris. I ended up going here my first day in the city…I got off of the plane in the morning, slept for a few hours in the apartment we were staying in, and then got ready for an afternoon adventure!
Thankfully the line to ride the Ferris Wheel wasn’t too long and in just a few minutes we were in our cart! I pulled my camera out, ready to snap away!
As the cart’s began to rise, an aerial view of the Jardin des Tuileries was exposed to us. Lush and green, perfectly manicured, clean and symmetric…this garden was impressive to say the least.
This garden not only provides a serene spot to relax in the city, but is also a great place for family fun. During summer holidays there are amusement park rides for the whole family that are sure to be a great time! After going on the rides, enjoy an ice cream or crepe from one of the many stands in the gardens.
Seeing the Champs Elysees has been one of my lifelong dreams. Being able to see this street my first day in Paris is more than I could have wished for! Perfectly trimmed trees line the street of some of the most expensive shopping and restaurants in the world. If you look straight ahead, down the street, you will be able to see the Arc de Triomphe…incredible!
My favorite view of the entire Ferris Wheel ride had to be the Seine and the Eiffel Tower. It was an emotional moment for me seeing what I had dreamed about looking at since I was a little girl in real life…so surreal!
After we got off the Ferris Wheel we strolled around the beautiful garden, enjoying the beauty of Paris!
More about my travels coming tomorrow!
