Stunning museum right next door to Louvre (well 15min walk). It’s a painting museum. Claude Monet lover alert. This is where you’ll find those 5m wide Monet painting in a sci-fi-ish looking white room.
Another round of less popular museum of Paris. I was going to name this post “Hidden Paris”, but this thing is too huge to be hidden anywhere. For a serious history buff, Panthéon will put your knowledge to the test. It is a mausoleum for distinguished French citizens. This place is highly boring if you know little about French history, literature or art. So, yes, not for everyone; but it is another gorgeous neoclassic architecture that Paris has to offer. The sheer scale of this architecture is marvelous to see.
There are around 130 museums in Paris. Seriously. Of course, not all of them are in the league of Louvre and its 70,000 exhibitions. So let’s give these smaller guys a chance. Shall we?
Starting a new series – travel Paris one zone at a time. Today’s post will focus on the islands, home to UNESCO site and the ice cream legend Berthillon. It’s a great way to kick start for any visitors. Here’s my tried and tested itinerary. This was originally written for my visiting friends. You know who you are 😉 xox
A freebie France only experience. This museum is run by Fragonard. This brand is well known in France but almost unheard of overseas. Fragonard doesn’t advertise. They’re well known here because they’ve been around since 1926.
