Jardins du Palais Royal

Metro: Palais Royal–Musée du Louvre's insider take:

Prior to the French Revolution, the Palais Royal was one of the most vibrant (and debauched) hangouts in the city—a hive of shops, cafés, theaters, and ladies of little virtue. It was here, in fact, that Camille Desmoulins whipped his listeners into a Bastille-storming frenzy on July 13, 1789. Today, these elegant gardens are still anchored by two survivors, La Comédie Française (on the southwest corner) and Le Grand Véfour (on the northern side). As quirky shops specializing in coins and vintage medals have ceded to a younger, fashion-forward crowd, the Palais Royal has become a trendy shopping destination. Alongside senior tenant Didier Ludot (who has been selling vintage couture here for over 30 years), international labels such as Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Rick Owens, and Acne have found a home among the Palais Royal's poetic arcades. You'll also discover the one-of-a-kind Les Salons du Palais Royal Shiseido by Serge Lutens; a Pierre Hardy shoe boutique; the up-and-coming leather house Corto Moltedo; and galleries, such as Joyce and IBU, for haute art, objects, and jewelry.
