The Palais Royal is a national domain sitting in the center of Paris.  Built by Cardinal Richelieu in 1634, the Palais Royal later became the heart of the French Revolution in the 1780s, frequented by courtisans, politicans, prostitutes and firebrands. French author Colette lived here, visited by artists, writers & actors.  Today the neighborhood is a mix of tradition and modernity, with chic boutiques, craftsmen's ateliers and cozy bistros. Let me take you on a visit to discover the pearls of this lovely area of Paris.
