Cardinal de Richelieu, the prime minister for King Louis XIII, commissioned the construction of the palace surrounding Jardin du Palais Royal in 1629. These gardens, enclosed within the walls of the palace, were first opened to the public in the 18th century. There are numerous restaurants inside the gardens, including famous Le Grand Véfour. Seek out the controversial modern art piece Colonnes de Buren, installed within the interior courtyard.

  • In the heart of the 3rd arrondissement of Paris, you will find a French garden framed by buildings of the 17th century. The garden is bordered by aisles with large plane trees and many benches, where Parisians come to lunch. Personally I prefer this place around noon in early spring, a pretty fountain sits in the middle of the garden.

  • Very nice scenery, even in the winter. A nice place for a walk lined with trees. Benches and water fountain available.
  • A hidden plaza in the center of Paris. This fully enclosed plaza is a favourite among locals to sit in the sun and have lunch.
  • Beautiful gravel garden with very expensive shops and a few restaurants liking the sides.
  • Graceful and calm place. People playing petanque, walking under tree alley, working out, reading on elegant chairs. Unforgettable atmosphere.
  • I can finally escape Chinese tourists with selfie sticks.
