The stunning stained-glass windows of the Sainte-Chapelle rank among the finest achievements of French High Gothic.
2 The Louvre
Quite simply, one of the world’s greatest art museums.
Arguably the city’s most lively and attractive district, characterized by narrow streets, fine Renaissance mansions and trendy bars.
4 Musée d’Orsay
After its major revamp, the Musee d’Orsay’s fabulous collection of Impressionist paintings are displayed to better effect than ever.
5 Jardin du Luxembourg
These lovely gardens capture Paris at its most warm-hearted.
6 Palais de Tokyo
This cool 1930s structure houses two of Paris’s most exciting art spaces.
7 Musée Rodin
Rodin’s intense sculptures are displayed to powerful effect in his eighteenth-century townhouse.
8 Puces de St-Ouen
Even if it’s less of a flea market now, and more of a mega-emporium for arty bric-a-brac and antiques, the St-Ouen market is a wonderful place for relaxed weekend browsing.
