Jardin du Palais Royal

Palais Royal Photography
This beautiful courtyard, modern art installations, hundreds of Corinthian columned walkways and perfectly placed fountains and gardens, make the Palais Royal a photographer's playground.

Personally, I can never get enough of the reflection opportunities in what these gorgeous silver balls are able to capture.

Be sure to soak up the Palais Royal on your way to or from the neighboring Louvre Museum.

Palais Royal Pillars
If you have an eye for photography, you'll love your options within the courtyard of the Palais-Royal in Paris' 1st arrondissement. Originally called the Palais-Cardinal, you'll now find permanent modern art installations that inspire greatness and creativity behind the camera. Charge those camera batteries or load that old school film, you'll love what you can capture here.


Paris through the ages
Strolling narrow, cobble paved streets of the Latin Quarter and up to the Cluny museum instantly evokes medieval Paris. Today, kids run wild in the foot steps of a young Louis XIV who played in the ornamental gardens, fountains, and covered arcades of the classically beautiful Palais Royal. The wide, bustling, Champs Elysées was where 18th century society would meet before Napoleon built his Arc de Triomphe to celebrate his military success. The Eiffel Tower is a monument to the creative energy of the Belle Epoque. Sweeping views from the 2nd floor highlight the buildings of modern Paris.

Stroll the Royal Gardens
There's the picture-perfect Luxembourg Gardens, the vast Tuileries, the intimate Place des Vosges and the Buttes Chaumont, a local hangout. But for a majestic stroll through history, head to the Palais Royal gardens, a quick walk from the Louvre and the Comédie Française theater. Opened in 1633 following the request of Cardinal de Richelieu, the small park/garden remains open all year round and maintains its royal charm even when its lush sheen lays dormant during the winter.

During the warmer months, take a book and relax near the fountain situated in the middle of the gardens. For especially well-heeled travelers, browse the illustrious arcades (with art galleries, antique shops, clothing stores and cafés) surrounding the park.
