The palace and the gardens are beautiful. Great place to escape the craziness of central Paris, relax, people watch, and hang out.

A big palace with beautiful garden. Sometimes the politiciens in town use this building to meet. At the garden we can picnic especially at summer like now. Lovely garden and palace. Recommended!

It is beautiful indeed and the gardens make for the most scenic spot in Paris in our opinion. However, we weren’t able to go inside and visit the interior. If we were, my review would have most likely been a 5! The palace guards were...More

You can only visit the building with a government official invitation or during a small window of time when all government buildings are opened to the general public. Regardless. FREE. The beautiful gardens are free.
