This royal palace, first home to Cardinal Richelieu and later a childhood home of Louis XIV, is longer open to the public, although its exquisite gardens can still be enjoyed.

As a fan of DUMAS this was a must for me. Who could resist going to the Palace where Cardinal Richellieu was based. For people who don't know it, it is a quiet haven in the middle of the city which is great for jogging,...More

On our walk to get to the Louvre, we passed through this lovely quiet area. There may be tours to get inside the buildings. We just walked around the gardens. There was a rose show going on when we were there. Many royals have lived...More

For me I love returning to Palais Royale Gardens, particularly at a time of day when others haven't discovered it yet. It is gorgeous in the afternoon if you can get a seat by the main centrepiece water fountain, gorgeous anytime of the day but...More

Paris is full of natural and material splendours, but I do not find this park and surrounding buildings one of them. You get a much better park complete with (similarly expensive) covered arcade shops and restaurants in the Place des Voges. And if you want...More

with the world’s best jewelers and their glittering

spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops or

Yes, it's free. It's a park for the surrounding buildings but open to the public, at least every time I've been there. Retail shops are along the arcade in the first floor of the buildings.
