See more of Paris via an open-top, double-decker bus and put aside worries about navigating the streets or using public transportation. With multiple routes, this bus tour makes it easy to hop on and off near main Paris attractions, plus hear audio commentary or listen to a live guide on the city’s history, monuments, and museums. Plan your own itinerary with 1- or 2-day options and move at the pace you set.

The 9e is a great happening area of Paris and la Musée de la Vie Romantique had long been on my list but it was a bit underwhelming. The house belonged to a Dutch artist who was tutor of art to Louis-Philip’s children. It’s a little urban oasis with a charming approach and little courtyard park with a nice tea room but the exhibits are a bit haphazard. Many of George Sand’s effects are there which are interesting. It would probably have been better on a nicer day.

Tucked into the base of Montmartre, a little bit hidden as you have to walk down a small lane way, opening up to a beautiful courtyard, the displays were very pleasing to the eyes, we enjoyed just ambling along taking it all in, another bonus admission is free.

The permanent collection is free to visit, and, while relatively small (basically several floors of furnished rooms and exhibits), it does provide a (small) window into that period in Paris. The main attraction is the house itself, which is typical of that time and of this place - others have been torn down and been supplanted by multistory residential buildings. It doesn’t take long to visit, you can get something to eat in the café just outside the house, and there is a small gift shop at the entrance. If you are just passing by and it is open, why not? There are also some temporary exhibitions in an adjacent building that do require an entry fee - the subject varies but will be related to that era.

Nice house and garden where Chopin, Liszt and George Sans and other famous people used to go and hang out. Best to get an audio guide (EUR5) to understand more about the place.

I was not expecting such a nice varied collection of items in addition to the art. It is a lovely small museum and the permanent collection is free.
