I adore this small (for Paris) museum, located in the old orangery of the Tuilerries palace and recently exquisitely renovated. The queues are short and there is this tranquillity about the place that completely relaxes you upon entering. Sit in the airy curved white rooms and take in Monet’s Nympheaus (Waterlillies) or amble from room to room enjoying the beautiful and varied Impressionist and post-Impressionist works from Cezanne to Picasso.
