We stumbled upon this when walking back to our hotel. Beautiful spot with gorgeous gardens and a peaceful place to walk around and contemplate. If you have extra time in Paris make this a place to visit.

Adjacent to the Louvre, this garden is a pretty spot to picnic or relax. I enjoyed thinking about Kings and Queens strolling around. Now we can all visit.
