One of the prettiest gardens in Paris with several fountains, lots of chairs for sitting, but best are the arcades of the Palais Royal that surround the garden. Louis XIV played here as a child.

I would not say that its a must visit place. But good. The gardens are beautiful. Palace is good. Good place for spending a few hours if you have leisure time. And just like any other place in Paris, be careful.

About a block from the Louvre across the street. The area is the Palais Royal which was a series of old houses making up a large courtyard where this garden is. Not a lot of tourists go there. But it is an oasis of calm...More

These lovely gardens are surrounded by the old 18th houses of the Palais Royal, now shops and restaurants. On a sunny day this is a great place to be.

From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighborhood oozes luxury. The grand arches along
Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front of
decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is lined
with the world’s best jewelers and their glittering
window displays. Every other establishment has someone

spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops or

You can go from the north entrance from Rue des Petits Champs. Jardin du Palais Royal is filled with classical parisian architecture and a famous art installation.
