Happy 1st day of Spring from the Tuileries Garden in Paris. The 55 acre garden is all that's left from the Tuileries Palace, a royal palace from 1564 until 1871 when it was burned down during the Paris Commune. Louis XVI and his family were forced to live here from their palace in Versailles in 1789. Napoléon Bonaparte also lived here in 1800. The garden separates the Louvre and the Place de la Concorde. There are over 200 statues and vases here dating back to the 17th century. You can tour the gardens for free from March until November.
