Really wonderful surroundings...great place to stroll around and unwind right in the inner city! The Orangerie is a fantastic old historical building with a great restaurant with fantastic light meals and a cold beer! Winter or summer it's like being in a fairy tale wonderland!

Beautiful large Orangerie summer residence, two kilometers long park with many paths, suitable for walking and chatting with children. At the palace you can use the café. Suitable for running and Nordic walking.

The Orangerie of Kassel is a beautiful building. Only from a distance or on a map you see how large the building actually is. Also has a nice terrace (with a cafe) in front.

A few questions about the Orsay... (2 Replies)
1. If I buy a timed exhibit to the Van Gogh for 12 euros...does that include my entry to the Orsay? I was looking on the FNAC website and couldn't figure this out. 2. If we do a timed entry at 9:30 to the Van Gogh...will there be any issues with us getting into the Orsay at that time due to the line? 3. Can we buy a combo ticket for the Orsay/L'Orangerie/Van Gogh online or in advance somewhere? Is this even possible? Thanks for any information. J.

How long at the Cluny and Rodin Museums? (7 Replies)
I am trying to decide if I can fit a visit to the Cluny and Rodin museums in one afternoon. I arrive at my hotel in Paris from Belgium on a Saturday around noon and would like to visit both of them before closing. The other option is to do the Orangerie and the Rodin and visit the Cluny on Monday morning. Also has anyone eaten at the cafeteria at the Rodin Museum? Price ? The link for the menu on the website is broken.

If you arrive at noon, as planned, then you could see the 2 museums... an hour and a half each can suffice, but on a nice day you might wish to spend more time at the Rodin Museum's lovely garden (quite big, a park really). I've seen the café in the garden but was never tempted to eat there, some seem to like it though -- it sells sandwiches and some sweets.

Here are my questions: - What to do in my three days (best places, sights, and so on). - Does it make sense tu purchase a travel pass that would grant me entrance to either museums, the Tour Eiffel and means of transport?

Get the Paris Museum pass at the airport TI booth when you arrive. I think there's a 4-day version. It pays for itself after about 4-5 museums. The real value is that you can pop into a museum you never heard of just to see what it's about - at no extra cost. Oh, and you can skip the ticket-purchase lines which can be a real time-saver. The metro sells a carne of 10 tickets cheaper than if bought one at a time. Buy a ticket to one of the Eiffel Tower levels in advance, otherwise there...More
