To me, there’s no place more romantic than where Parisian architecture and gardens meet. And Palais Royal is the coziest and quaintest of them all. In the middle of the city, almost hidden to those who might not know about it, lies the courtyard inside the Palais Royal.
Palais Royal Gardens
Columns frame in a “secret” garden, with little cafes and restaurants all along the perimeter. Rows of trees, one of Paris’s signature features, take you from one end to the other, with a fountain and small garden between.
Each time I return to Jardins du Palais-Royal, it’s just as beautiful as I remember. It feels special to me, knowing that there are few places on earth where a beautiful palace garden has been transformed into a public park where you can visit for free whenever you feel like reading a book in the sunshine, amidst the beauty.
I think that’s what strikes me the most about Paris. The history and the architecture intrigues and inspires me. I am in love with the elegance and charm that was put into every corner of this city, and it’s a love that started small and grew over my multiple trips there. You can really delve deep into the details of Paris to find its magic, because it’s not like what the movies depict. Once you see Paris for what she really is, you will love her like no other.
