  • They are beautiful gardens, with very peculiar and beautiful columns. He's very comfortable walking, especially if it's early in the morning.

  • The Palais Royal. Get there early if you want a clear no-crowd picture with those short cylindrical pillars, otherwise the place will be full of children running around.  more »

  • May or may not have came here because it was a shooting location in Mission Impossible: Fallout. That doesn't mean it detracts from the beauty and peace found in this garden. Definitely pay this place a visit while in Paris. You won't regret it.
  • Beautiful garden where you can sit quietly and enjoy the view of water fountain, tree lines and flowers. Or stroll and enjoy window-shopping the small unique shops and high-end boutiques.
