Today it is almost 110 degrees F, so even more reason to retreat to this beautiful air conditioned space. The Louvre is so very crowded that I encourage you to come here for that reason as well. Another good reason -- entry to the permanent...More

Everyone beats a fast path to the Louvre and Musee d'Orsay, and they are super worth it, but the Petit Palais is a secret gem. Free of charge ( except for exhibits),not crowded, right at the metro station (Clemenceau) and in a simply stunning building....More

Very few foreigners ever make to it the lovely Petit Palais. That is very much their loss. Not only is the building the second prettiest 19th century building in France after the Opera Garner, with one of the most charming garden restaurants in Paris (the...More

Just in front of the Grand Palais, maybe it is overshadowed by it, but the visit is worth by itself. The art collection may not be as good and complete as other Paris museums, but the beatiful architecture, internal luminosity and peaceful garden justify your...More

This won't be everyone's cup of tea, but with no entrance fee I would recommend spending some time here. Some fantastic paintings - including a Monet when I was there. On a hot day it offers some respite from the outside. The café is decent...More

Free of Charge for most entries, this is a little gem. Focus on the architecture as much as the museum contents: the staircases, the halls and the lovely serene inner garden. A useful tip is to arrive at opening time for special exhibitions: its never...More

This area is characterized by its namesake avenue
which extends northwest from the Louvre to the modern
business district, punctuated by the iconic Arc de
Triomphe. Grand embassies stand among impressive
offices and presidential palaces; architecture from
19th century Universal Exhibitions, homes, art
galleries, and 19th century streets designed by Baron
Haussmann flank haute-couture boutiques. This
