Rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris, France
This former royal palace is one of the largest museums in the world, and its art collection is considered one of the most comprehensive. It contains around 400,000 works, although—mercifully, perhaps—not all are on display at any one...

1 Rue de la Légion d'Honneur, 75007 Paris, France
Small enough to get around without being overwhelmed, the Musée d'Orsay is a favorite stop in Paris not just for its size but for its collection of impressionist, postimpressionist, and art nouveau art. Perfectly set in the center of the...
Save Place
Opéra Garnier, 8 Rue Scribe, 75009 Paris, France
Your ride is aboard a double-decker bus with a transparent sliding roof, so you can see the sights without getting rained on, or cold or sunburned; the two-hour tour includes photo ops of 40 Paris monuments, and the full-day hop-on, hop-off option...
Save Place
79 Rue de Varenne, 75007 Paris, France
We enjoyed a glass of red wine and dessert at the café on the grounds of Le Musée Rodin. The trees, thinned from winter, gave the gardens a gothic air, as if to suggest the possibility of specters and spooks emerging from its graveled paths. That...

Save Place
35 Rue du Chevalier de la Barre, 75018 Paris, France

The gravestones in Montmartre Cemetery read like a who’s who of 19th-century Paris, with an emphasis on writers and artists: Degas, Stendhal and Nijinsky, to name a few. Begin your walking tour by riding the cable car to the top of...

Save Place
Josephine Baker and Toulouse Lautrec are familiar names irrevocably linked to the cabarets of the Belle Epoque. Going to the Moulin Rouge today is decidedly less risqué than it was 100 years ago and locals seem to prefer the older Folies Bergère,...
Save Place
Port de la Conférence, 75008 Paris, France
Cruising the Seine on a Bateaux Mouches is a great Parisian classic. The monuments flow pass and you know you couldn’t be anywhere but the City of Light. But there is another waterway in Paris, a more charming waterway, rich with nostalgia....

The sun was warm and had a different illumination that came through this photograph of Monet's gardens. This father and child felt like a moment in time captured that could be 1811 or 2011.
