Palais Royal, Paris
(4.4/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
Nestled between peaceful, nostalgic gardens, Palais Royal features magnificent 17th-century architecture and is the home to contemporary sculptures by Bury and Buren. Because the palace houses the Constitutional Council and the Ministry of Culture, the building is not open to the public. However, you can tour the gardens for free. You'll notice four rows of lime trees planted during the 1970s, chestnut trees dating back to 1910, and more than 450 trees providing shade for two vast green areas. Elegant marble statues include "Le Charmeur de Serpent" carved by Adolphe Thabard in 1875, "Le Pâtre et la Chèvre" by Paul Lemoyne in 1830, and more. Several buildings surrounding the garden have restaurants, shops, and galleries. Our Paris travel itinerary maker makes visiting Palais Royal and other Paris attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Come walk from Opera to the rue Saint-Honoré, and seen the Palais Royale building. No remnant was a Royal Palace, was the Royal Palace, but it looks decorative,. Became a Royal Palace, but then moved to Versailles palace, building things and change tracking, now enters the administrative organs of the State. Unnoticed in here and go to a local small town hall even gilded decorated with or by 見se付kemasu authorities and officials, but the sober. Tourists like no interest in building more and more through the side of the building, aiming at the courtyard and cloister. We also stepped on the courtyard, followed by the tourists.

  • Next to the big Louvre complex and away from the bus tours is this Palais. Partly a sculpture garden and partly and old fashion garden with unique shops. 
  • Within a classical architecture, a very nice squares conform, it is an ideal place for rest of harassment of the town, beautiful gardens, sculptures modern, arcades, restaurants and cafes, they form this beautiful place, which should not miss on your visit to the city.

  • When you want to feel royal 😍 This palace is a beautiful place and its garden is definitely one of the best in Paris. Must see!
  • Beautiful urban square/gardens. A retreat in the heart of the city.
  • Formidable. I did not expect to find a such beautiful place in the heart of Paris. You just go frim the Louvre across the street, under the bows to see an astonishing garden. Big garden, with flowers and seats.
  • You just have to check out the gardens! You can't see from the outside but they are actually very beautiful and peaceful with lots of flowers and pretty monuments.
  • For me this is a hard place to rate. The grounds are great and a wonderful place to sit around and enjoy the day. But at the same time it is kind of a shame to see a building so historically significant to be turned into coffee shops and what not.
