Paris, I. Love. You. | Part 2

Paris doesn't disappoint when it comes to museums! You could fill a 2 week vacation visiting a new museum or historical site every day and you would need to come back for another, and maybe even another to see half of what Paris has to offer!

LouvreThe biggest (and most notorious) are the Louvre, a former palace of French Royalty is a must-see, but unless you plan to spend days visiting each wing, hall, small room - it's best to have a well thought out plan of what you would like to see, where you may want to wander, and put together a map - or you can book a private or small-group tour! It all starts at the iconic pyramid, a rush to the (often crowded) Mona Lisa and a few other highlights. Planning it out before you go will help relieve the stress and rush! Did you know that the Louvre had a medieval foundation that you can visit?

Musee d'OrsayIf Claude Monet and Vincent van Gogh are your style artists, you should visit the former train station - turned museum, Musee d'Orsay. Masterful pieces adorn the many walls and you could get lost in brush strokes for hours! The museum did retain some of the unique features of the original train station - see if you can spot them in future blog posts!

The Musee de l'Orangerie is an exquisite gallery of impressionist and post-impressionist paintings including Water Lilies by Claude Monet. It is an incredible museum that has expansive murals that cover the walls while offering a bench for visitors to sit and get lost in the majesty of some of the most well known paintings in history.
