Paris Itinerary for Art Lovers

Paris Itinerary for Art Lovers, Paris, France (B)

I spent quite a lot of time in Paris wandering around museums and galleries and felt truly spoilt for choice.

An art-themes trip to Paris is ideal because it has such a wealth of world-class museums and galleries of every conceivable type to enjoy.

For art lovers, that abundance can be quite overwhelming at first, which is why I made this itinerary.

It narrows down the vast selection and takes you to the must-see, famous museums, as well as to a selection of small galleries and more unique art spaces.

Most museums and galleries in this guide are within reasonable walking distance from each other, or you can take the metro if you prefer.

Generally, you want to book tickets in advance for most museums in Paris. Skip-the-line tickets are always recommended, they’ll save you quite a bit of time. For the big museums, it’s also a good idea to book a tour, to make sure you get to see all the important highlights.

Start your art-themed visit to Paris at the iconic Centre Pompidou, one of the most popular art spaces in the world. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
