1- Musée Jacquemart-André
et la collection Ordrupgaard
The works of the collection were collected during world War I and were the early impressionists. The exhibit is wonderful, and will be there until January, 2018. The museum is located in a wonderful palace 1700 which shows how rich people could live at that time in Paris. The site is as wonderful as the pieces of art which are exposed. We loved to see paintings from Mantegna, Botticelli, and other masters. The roll-call of great artists is amazing. In the fifteenth century gallery, you will find that rarest of early Renaissance sculptors, Donatello as well as Luca della Robbia. Amongst the Italian Renaissance painters, look out for Botticelli, Mantegna, Carpaccio, Giovanni Bellini, Perugino (Raphael's teacher) and the inventor of perspectival painting, Paolo Uccelo. From later centuries, you can find outstanding paintings by Rembrandt and van Dyck, Canaletto and Tiepolo, French artists such as Fragonard and Chardin and the English artists Gainsborough and Reynolds and Sir Thomas Lawrence. 158 boulevard Haussmann 75008 Paris
Antoinette Poisson « domino » printed paper and fabrics are reminiscent of the cosy and rustic charm of 18th century interiors. With them, we rediscover the 18th century dominated wallpapers, which are printed on the board and hand painted in their Parisian workshop. Linen prints and decorative objects complete this universe of patterns and colors inspired by Le Siècle des Lumières.

Where we like to go best
You simply can't go to Paris and not eat a crepe. Breizh Café has the best in the city. It is a must! The Breton style crepes are delicious, with a great selection of savory and sweet, as was the cider, arguably the best we've tasted. The service is good and the atmosphere very nice, definitely look forward to eating here again!

One of our favourite places
The Grande Roue de Paris is back on the Place de la Concorde! Climbing in a gondola to admire the French capital from the top of the wheel is an event you would miss for nothing in the world! No matter if you are young or grown-up or where you come from, you want to take a ride on the Grande Roue!Why so? Simply because the city of lights deserves its nickname even better when seen from the sky. Aboard one the 42 gondolas (including one providing access to disabled guests), the Grande Roue offers a 70-meter high breathtaking view over the Champs Elysées, the Tuileries and up to the Louvre! With the Christmas lights, the show is definitely worth it. And also because Paris City Hall doesn't wish to renew the lease of Grande Roue owner Marcel Campion.
