The Monet oval rooms are worth it alone.. I wouldn't spend a day there but add it to your visit to the Musee d'Orsay or the Louvres.

We went mid-afternoon with no advance ticket purchase and were able to get in with very little wait. We are crowd adverse so I was hesitant to go but have always wanted to see the Water Lillies. Because they limit the number of people they...More

Waterlilies. A must see at least once in your life, though I'd happily go back year after year. Wonderful display or arts and interesting exhibitions changing throughout the year.

Imagine the magic of finding yourself almost alone with an unimpaired view of the magnificent Monet's water lilies. It is difficult to imagine a greater sensation and deeper emotion. This is what the Musee de l'Orangerie offers you provided you arrive sufficiently early or are...More

The Monet paintings are magnificent and beautifully displayed. This is a place where you would love to sit and absorb the sweep of these huge paintings but unfortunately the chance to do that is slim as the museum is very popular so getting the full...More

Prime location, not huge like Louvre focused on a short time frame of art so very easy to schedule a visit. Monet's paintings are of course impressive as well as other works. I suggest to visit as early as possible. We visited from noon until...More

Get totally emmersed in the Monet water lilies. You can see the entire mural on two curved walls with a nice bench between them. It is quiet with not too many people on the day we visited. There is also a very nice museum on...More

This is a relatively small museum, a short walking distance from the Louvre. It is one that most tourist overlook but I have always enjoyed the exhibits. I suggest buying the combination ticket with Musee D'Orsay.

Most recent visit March 2019. Orangerie is a particular favorite for impressionism in a smaller, more digestible format. While it may lack the scope of Orsay across the river, it should not be overlooked. Visiting early on Sunday morning saw no lines and galleries that...More

Louvre / Palais-Royal
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
