Neighborhood: Louvre / Palais-Royal
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 to open the door for you or park your car. You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops or lingering over a meal at any of its chic eateries. After all that indulgence, the Tuileries gardens provide stately respite, while theaters compete for your applause. It's a neighborhood that draws admirers from around the world, all attracted to the luxe life in Paris.

Even in the rain these gardens are a beautiful peaceful spot. To have such an amazing place right in the center of Paris is Paradise found. Make a point of giving your spirit a rest.

hidden gem
May 2021
A peaceful park where you can take a break from the crowds and noise of the Louvre. At least I suspect that’s how it works in non-COVID times. The tree lined paths are gorgeous and I assume more so in the fall. The fountain in the center has chairs where you can sit with a snack or take a break while the kids run around the rest of the park.

Huge park
Sep 2020 • Couples
A very nice vast park with parallel trees that give you a wonderful illusion while walking amidst them. There is also a nice fountain in the middle where you can see people enjoying their books or just the nice weather.

Quite, comfortable, peaceful
Jun 2019
The Jardin du Palais Royal is a relatively small but popular garden in central Paris. It's obvious this is a place for locals to come to relax, read, enjoy quiet conversation, or simply get lost in thought. Some beautiful greenery and flora surrounded by a large and imposing building. (Our actual visit was in late May 2019). A very enjoyable visit followed by a nice lunch at the local cafe.

Favourite garden
Jan 2020
We have visited a-lot of gardens/parks, during our stay in Paris. This beautiful garden is not as touristy as its close by cousin, gardens tuileries. It has everything it has just in a smaller scale. Due to the lack of crowds, there is plenty of seating to have a picnic lunch or read a book, so peaceful. Definitely worth a visit, before the word gets out.

Nice gardens in the city center
Dec 2019
Nice gardens with benches beneath the tree lines just behind the National Domaine royal palace with a fountain in the middle.
Small, yet nice place to take a break in the very city center.

Lovely secluded garden, great for relaxing since it's much less crowded than majority of nearby places.

Poetic and refreshing at all times of the year
Nov 2019
While the summer sees this little park bristling with people, outdoor seating and activity it is no less interesting to visit at colder times of the year.

It is of course much more quiet - a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the Rue de Rivoli and the next door Louvre museum.

Accessing from the Rue de Rivoli, you first pass through the courtyard with the back and white columns in different heights installed by the artist Daniel Buren in the 1980's. They give a brilliant new perspective to the square and some excellent photo opportunities of course.

Walking further into the real garden of what was the Cardinal Richelieus personal palace, there is a beautiful square garden with galleries on all sides where you can find interesting shops and cafés and restaurants.

The garden has chairs available for a sit-down - and you must take some time to read the quotes sculpted through holes in the chairs. They are in French of course; but all very poetic and interesting.

A rare oasis of peace in Paris!

Nice spot in central Paris
Oct 2019
Nice little green spot in central Paris - you see people playing boule, often newly married couples are photografed here. Nice restaurants or just enjoy the nice surroundings.
