The Palais Royal is not opened to the public however the gardens can be visited and the grounds are free to visit. Impressive building that Louis XIV grew up in.

The Palais Royal has to one of my most favourite spots in Paris. Nestled in the heart of the 1st it is a tranquil retreat at any time but in spring it is gorgeous. It’s a must see when in Paris.

This palace is just next to the Louvre. Be sure to enter it from the side (less tourists, less crowded) and walk all the way though to the garden. The garden is lovely, perfect for a rest and to refresh during a hectic day out...More

There are many interesting shops along the elegant arcades of Palais Royal; and a good place to walk in rainy weather as the arcades protect from rain. The metro stop is nearby.

Nestled between peaceful, nostalgic gardens, Le Palais Royal features magnificent 17th-century architecture and is the home to contemporary sculptures by Bury and Buren.

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

Yes, it's free. It's a park for the surrounding buildings but open to the public, at least every time I've been there. Retail shops are along the arcade in the first floor of the buildings.
