Come alongside the Seine and explore this great and historical art museum. Although you can’t see inside, the building and grounds are a work of art in its own right. To the left of the Louve is located the Place du Carrousel and the intricately green Jardin des Tuileries.

A crystal-faceted brilliance strikes you when you first see this building. Take a second glance and you can see the activity behind the massive skylit roof. Opposite the Grand Palais is…you guessed it…the Petit Palais. Lovely gardens surround all.
