What to do in Paris 1 ? 🤷‍♂️

The Louvre Museum (Métro: Palais Royal / Louvre) . One of the largest and most important museums in the world. A cult of culture with works of inestimable value. It’s a museum that does not turn in 2-3 hours, and if you want to get to know it you’ll need to spend at least one day there. To avoid queues and waiting, it is a good idea to have your tickets purchased beforehand and go as early as possible, in any other case arming patiently because it is worth it.

Le Palais Royal (Métro 1, 7: Palais Royal – Musée du Louvre). The former royal palace of Louis XVI with its royal gardens is yet another attraction in the heart of Paris.

Jardin des Tuileries (Métro 1: Tuileries). An oasis of green in the center of Paris. The Tuileries Gardens extend from the Louvre Museum to the Place de la Concorde and are open to the public for free.

Musée de la Orangerie (Métro 1: Tuileries). Another great museum. It is located in the Tuileries Gardens and is an excellent alternative. In the oversized rooms of this museum you will find unique works of great impressionists such as Claude Monet, Antoine Renoir, Paul Cezan, Jean-Jacques Roussos and paintings by Pablo Picasso.

Sainte-Chapelle (Métro 4: Cité). The Holy Chapel or St Chapelle is located at Île de la Cité, next to Palais de Justice, and is a masterpiece of medieval Gothic architecture built in 1248.
