    We trudged to this private house after a long morning and before catching our Eurostar back home, so this was very much filling time, but it turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip.

    This is a stunning private home with an amazing personal private collection of art which is displayed as it would have been see at the time. It was so interesting that you view the collection in reverse chronological order and each room holds treasures and surprises for you to discover. Make sure you collect the audio guide as this is incredibly helpful and helps to navigate the collection. It’s obviously an old house and there is a bit of doubling back to get to the next part of the tour, but the audio guide leads you through all this. Could have stayed longer…..

    I visited by random, the entrance fees is free for access to the permanent collection and the beautiful garden
    I paid 15 e for access to the Boldoni expo and the one about art nouveau design style
    It was worth it !

    One of my favorite places in Paris. And one of the nicest parks in the city is in the backyard. All the furnishings are real and very valuable.

    A thrill to drive down a street with such historical significance, many famous designer shops and other really expensive places to spend your life away. Beautiful drive and lot's of traffic.

    Adorning the eastern end of Avenue Champs-Élysées is the historic square in Paris, Place de la Concorde. With an area of more than 7 hectares, it is considered the largest square in Paris.

    This 18th-century square had witnessed many public executions; one of the high-profile cases is that of King Loius XVI. Today, it is adorned with two fountains, the Maritime Fountain and the Fountain of the Rivers, and a Luxor obelisk, a 3000-year-old 23-meter structure shipped from Egypt in 1833.

    Next to it lies the Jardin des Tuileries (Tuileries Garden), which is an ideal spot to rest and relax after hours of sightseeing. Here you’ll find two spacious ponds, surrounded by lanes of manicured trees, which are studded by various statues. In the southwest nook stands the Musée de l’Orangerie, which houses the works of Monet.

    If you keep walking across the garden, you’ll eventually reach the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel and then the Louvre!

    This "neighborhood" church sits in the center of a busy part of Paris. Not far from the Place du Concord it has numerous sculptures and art works. The giant entry doors are reminiscent of the Baptistry doors in Florence. The organ here is Massive. I believe it is one of the largest in France. Material in the church indicates it is a popular concert venue.

    There are monuments here: The Arc de Triomphe, the Trocadero lookout. Modern Art Museum. And there are some grand hotels. So come here to admire the grandeur, but otherwise it is rather cold and stark. Not much life on the streets, few cafes, except for expensive ones, a lack of charming bistros. Lots of offices installed in old apartment houses.

    Another street in the center of Paris filled with high end luxury stores like Chanel, LV, Dior, etc. Went on the first week of September and it wasn’t crowded due to pandemic limiting tourists. Many expensive exotic cars parked along 5 star hotels and near the luxury stores. Unlike Champs Elysees, stores are further apart. Good for a stroll to check off Paris bucket list. Ok to skip if no intentions to buy anything.

    Great location at end of the Champs Elysee Park as you cross to the Tuileries Gardens. Symbol of French imperialism and plunder. Nicely restored. Top regilded.

    High end luxury stores align a big stretch of this street. Any luxury name, big or small, can be found here. Often see high end expensive cars parked outside while owners go shopping - the life of the rich. Store window displays are beautiful. Impossible to not spend a ton of money here.

    When visiting this exhibition on Nov 28, 2019, there were large crowds of people waiting outside. Organization to get tickets, get your coat into cloak-room was slow. Then, one can hardly imaging today, there was a dense stream with many visitors slowly passing the paintings, drawings. Yes, beautiful art, as we knew already. Amazing, how peoductive HTL had been, and so 'telling'with a few strokes of pencil.
    Now let us think how to support artists of today...

    We were intending to visit the Grand Palais but it was closed and discovered the Palais de la Decouverte nearby while wandering around the area. As concessionaries, the entrance fee was 7€ each and we were given a map in English showing the various display areas and themes covered therein. Sadly, there was very little else in English so our understanding of many of the exhibits was limited. Nevertheless, we spent 2-3 hours wandering around looking at the many displays and enjoying “playing” with the interactive exhibits while also testing our basic, school French.

    The themes covered within the museum included aspects of physics such as magnetism, light and sound; chemistry; anatomy (including a section titled “L’Ecole des rats”!); astronomy and mathematics.

    Despite the lack of English notes, we enjoyed the visit but people with no knowledge of French should probably consider avoiding the museum.
