  • Monet's water lilies can be less famous kite Oran Julie Museum is Monet's water lilies series as well as the works of a variety of works, the parka, with breakfast. The location is close to the Museum of art and the Museum of Orsay Museum has, but with a lot of work of art. Visit Paris if you want to recommend to the Museum.

  • During their visit I went 2 times. Are exhibited in the Monet painting is a very nice atmosphere. Not too crowded, so calm down slowly, could watch.

  • One of the best art/museum experiences I've ever had. Smaller, but on point collection of all the big names in the impressionist and post-impressionist movements. Was super impressed. Highly recommend for anyone that is interested in these two movements.
  • Should buy a ticket to visit most museums around Paris and great collection of high quality with nice staff and very efficient service.
  • The Monet water lilies in a setting designed by Monet was amazing! Everything else was interesting.
  • Small but impressive. I loved seeing Monet's works that he did when he was going blind.
  • Small, but impressive. The private collection of select artworks of modern masters is simply captivating, even without the well-known masterpieces.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
