This Metro entrance has very cute decorations. And it's located in a lovely square in the middle of Paris. I recommend a visit to the Comedie Francaise gift store.

One of the most ornamental entrances of all the Metro stations and the artwork is known as “Kiosk of the night owls”. The metro station is located between the Louvre and the lovely Palais Royal gardens.
