As it was intended by Monet, the true art lover could sit for hours and contemplate these massive paintings. Paris needs art like this, because it is a city with much concrete, and few parks - even though they are grand where they exist. Please...More

Discovered this museum nearly 30 years ago..a pleasure to visit because of it's size, simplicity and choice of artworks.Like a "tasting plate" of well known artists. A great introduction to fine art without being overwhelmed 👌

If you're a fan of impressionist painter, Claude Monet, like I am, you'll love the Musee de l'Orangerie, which features some of his seminal works like Water Lilies. There are other large paintings by Monet that rival the delicate touch of Water Lillies. On the...More

The Musee de l'Orangerie, though small, is one of my favorite spaces in Paris. Monet's Water Lilies draw you in.

You get a 'sample' of works of art by a dozen artists-Monet, Renoir, Cezanne, Picasso, etc. The big draw is Monet's two 'Water Lilies' works in the round. An excellent place to spend the morning or afternoon and then move to another attraction.

People often skip this museum. While we’re not Monet’s biggest fans it’s hard not to be awed by his expansive water lily paintings.

If you like Monet then you will love seeing his Water Lillies. Wow his work is amazing. The entrance fee is €9 per adult. Excellent value. I would advise to go early in the day. You also get to see work from Cezanne, Picasso, Renoir,...More

From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighborhood 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 or
