Inspirock Rating:
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.

  • This monumental complex and just a few steps from the opera and close to the Louvre. Place loved by Parisians who appreciate its beauty and tranquility to read, relax and enjoy the weather. Pie no of exclusive shops of various kinds. And a place of where you fall in love easily and will remain attached to the memory. Fine art installations on completion of the courtyards of the colonnades.

  • From the hotel relatively close, I came in passing of the passage. It is a space fountain, away from the hustle and bustle of Paris and the shop has become a corridor and passages here, rather than a sense of inertia is a little dark, but is, on the square in the Middle comes out. Daytime on weekdays to work? And Japanese way of thinking, I look at young people taking a break (hehe) Lehman, as Hibiya park, Ueno Park in Tokyo, speaking of which, I'm dazed and... looking at this fountain take a NAP once in a while. Your energies, also went to the tourist. Still, horse chestnut? The beauty is breathtaking in like a symbol. Go look at the history and deep emotion.

  • I can't speak to the interior, but the Jardin is, perhaps, my favorite in Paris. I love the roses, the fountains, and the square trees all sorry under by the Palais Royale. On top of that there is an awesome sculpture garden (all black and white pillars) that is not to be missed!
  • Beautiful spot near the Louvre. It can get quite crowded but the food and service were really good. We will go there again
  • The Palais-Royal actually encompasses whole courtyard area you find behind this initial façade. It's where King Louis XIV learned to ride horses as a child and where famous people like Cocteau and Colette have lived. It beautiful in the summer. It's stunning in the winter.
  • LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION, The Louvre is, of course, magnificent, fabulous and groovy, if you will but Le Palais Royal leaves me wishing I better under understood the French language since the staff was rather, humph, how do I say? Um-mm, er, well at least it's an exemplair LOCATION!
  • It's a touristy location so you would expect high prices but my hot chocolate was tepid and water. More about the ambience than the beverage - avoid if possible.
