It has always come as a surprise to us that the Palais-Royal, although situated in the heart of Paris, is so often missed by visitors. Perhaps it’s because the entrance isn’t obvious or perhaps visitors are distracted by a visit to the Louvre, which is opposite. For a weary visitor, the beautiful gardens of the historic Palais-Royal are a haven of peace and relaxation away from the crowds of the Louvre and the hustle and bustle of the city.
Those who think of Paris as simply a collection of historic monuments, or a city with food and fashion around every corner, are in danger of missing the many fabulous exhibitions that are held at various times of the year.
This is a city filled with major museums and galleries that you must return to time and time again.
