If you take the Metro to the Palais Royal stop, you will exit via one of Hector Guimard's fancyfull ironworks into the Place du Palais Royal which during the day is teeming with locals and tourists. (There is a busy bus stop here as well.) Across the Rue Rivoli is the Louvre and behind you is the Palais Royal. It has lateral wings and its Cour d'Horloge is separated from you by a fine gate. The sculptural work was done by Pajou in the 18C some time after the palace was built.

Address: 8 Rue de Montpensier, 75001 Paris
