Create an itinerary including Petit Palais
Built for the Universal Exhibition of 1900, Petit Palais now houses the City of Paris Museum of Fine Arts in its two large exhibition halls. The galleries each have a theme: one depicts old Paris and the other symbolizes 20th-century Paris. The ceilings of the two pavilions are ornately painted to reflect the intellectual currents of the time, and many floors were painstakingly covered with marble mosaics by the Italian artist Facchina.

  • One of the best free museums in the world. You can find a lot of great pieces of art here and it will be interesting for those who know a lot about it and who think Monet and Manet is the same person. Gorgeous inner garden and you can drink pretty good coffee there. Highly recommended to visit.
  • Very nice and pretty big. Great pieces of art. Not crowded and free. The cafe was very good and can't wait to be able to sit on the beautiful terrace.
