From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal, this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is lined with the world’s best jewelers and their glittering window displays. Every other establishment has someone to open the door for you or park your car. You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops or lingering over a meal at any of its chic eateries. After all that indulgence, the Tuileries gardens provide stately respite, while theatres compete for your applause. It's a neighbourhood that draws admirers from around the world, all attracted to the luxe life in Paris.
Monet's Water Lilies excellent! A small museum but well worth the time. The audio tour was wonderful. You can listen to commentary synced to the paintings you are interested in. We loved everything here.
You seriously need at least 2 days to see all the artworks. I suggest getting there early so it's not as crowded. We just bought our tickets when we got there but if you're planning to visit a lot of museums, you might want to look into the passes as they work out cheaper.
Be prepared to walk a lot...
This garden is more colorful, more like an English formal garden. than the average French formal garden -- it even looks English! It also has talking chairs. You can take in the sun and listen to your favorite author. Poetry is popular,

"Not really royal"
reviewed 1 week ago by Jeffry B
The Palais Royal was built by Cardinal Richelieu. Cardinal Richelieu was chief minister to King Louis XIII of France. No expense was spared on its construction. When the cardinal died, the palais fell into the hands of the kind, hence the name Palais Royal. Take a look around if you have the chance. Who said that clergymen lived in poverty?
"Good and it wouldn’t take much for this to be great"

There was a nice array of cheeses and more limited on the meats. The wines were inside so you had to go in and pick the wine by the bottle and pay a corkage fee. There were several by the glass, which was a nice selection but no information provided by the server. Service was slow and inattentive at best....
A dinner here is a wonderful treat. From the moment you enter and are seated in the spacious beautiful room that is a mixture of very modern with traditional lighting you feel you are in for a special meal. The options are all multicourse tasting menus. You only chose the main course from 3 options; the rest is a surprise...
I walk Into this place, and the guy says it’s the best place. But he was right. Also, he is quite funny. So, I’m about to go back right now for some baking and a coffee.
Good place to get some morning food or some crepes in afternoon. Or anytime.
It is the best.
Appetizers: cucumbers, shrimp special. Dinner: Veal, Hake special, Beef Burgundy special. The beef burgundy was a table favorite. Was tender and extremely flavorful. The scalloped potatoes served with it were a perfect match. Dessert was the pear mouse with raspberries and the trio of sorbets. Overall a wonderful experience, very friendly chef and our waiter was attentive. Would recommend 100%.
Simply great. Had a late drink and a bite in the garden on an unexpected warm day in Paris. A glass of rose and some dim sum was simply the perfect treat before rushing back to the airport. The calming influence of the garden, comfortable seating was just perfect. Service was on point, will be back in a heartbeat.
Great hotel and service. They need to open up more in terms of food options. You are pretty limited if you are vegan or vegetarian. Otherwise the service and other things are great. Hotel is located in a nice area.
This is my second time staying at this hotel and they did not disappoint. I had a great experience with the hotel last year for 1 night and decided to return to Paris and stayed this year for 4 nights. I love this hotel’s location...close to the Louvre and Jardin du Tulleries. I also love shopping in the Rue St...
We had a great stay, the Moliere was great since we first walked in, spacious lobby, great service, we even got an upgrade, the rooom was super spacious and very wellfurnished, we had a great view to an internalpatio! Location was very good as we walked to the Gran Colbert for dinner!
Beautiful hotel, exceptional service and great location for our needs (we were just in Paris for one night and wanted to be close to the Louvre). Room was spacious, for Paris anyway! Big bed, slick and modern bathroom, evening service was a nice touch too. Only grumble was we had to call concierge twice to get a iron delivered, which...
