Musee d'Orsay

Swati Keshri
This day started with Musee'd Orsay (Orsay Museum). It's also called the 'Impressionism museum' and holds mainly French art belonging to mid 19th- early 20th century, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, and photography.
Musee d'Orsay: I also recommend you go visit Musee d'Orsay, a 7-minute walk from the Louvre. Renowned for its rich collection of Impressionist art, the Musée d'Orsay also displays all Western artistic creation from 1848 to 1914. Its gorgeous collections represent all expressive forms, from painting to architecture, as well as sculpture, and photography. Tickets cost some 14 euros per adult. The best part about this museum is the grand architecture: Orsay was previously a train station that looked like a palace. It was converted to a museum for the 1900 Universal Exposition (world Fair).
Walking distance from here is Musée Branly in the 7eme which often has great exhibitions, and the rooftop restaurant Les Ombres offers stunning views of the Eiffel Tower. Other attractions include Musée D’orsay which is worth a visit if you haven’t been, gorgeous space, a former Beaux-Arts railway station turned museum. And of course 7eme is home to the Eiffel tower.3eme/4eme/11eme:Bordering St Germain des Près in the 6eme, don’t miss the Merci store and Marché des Enfants Rouges in the 3eme, And Centre Pompidou in the 4eme.Every Thursday and Sunday, there’s the Marché de Richard LeNoire – some of the best crepes we’ve had at that market.Happy walking through the city, there’s lovely Odette Choux in the 5eme near Notre Dame and your best bet for some amazing bread and patisserie Du Pain et des Idées in the 10eme then take a stroll towards 19eme to Canal St Martin while you enjoy your freshly baked croissants and pain au chocolat.
