A very cherished place that I appreciate dearly and which I love to share with you here for a ‚what to do in Paris’, through my eyes in these photographs. Between ancient marbles, modern stained glass windows and Renaissance frescoes, the Petit Palais celebrates what inspires the greatest artists of the past. Thus, as a favorite muse, nature finds itself at the center of the monument: in the heart of the trapeze, a semi-circular garden bordered by a richly decorated peristyle makes all the particularity of the place. In its center, it is a real little green lung that is revealed around a pool with sparkling mosaics. The stroll under the peristyle reveals magnificent frescoes decorated with trellises punctuated by medallions depicting the months. Paul Baudoin, a pupil of Puvis de Chavannes, set out to reproduce in the middle of 1900, an artistic know-how of which the greatest were painters during the Italian Renaissance. The passage in the garden of the Petit Palais, allows admiration of the subtle and delicate union between nature and mimesis, a little corner of paradise where it is possible to take the time for a coffee between the columns. An divine oasis in the middle of Paris.

Petit Palais, the home and heart of fine arts of Paris. Drawn by the angel sculptures and angel frescos, left me starring at these impeccable art pieces for many visits. I appreciate the garden for a good read. If you have the time, take a book. The Petit Palais measures in at over 5,000 square meters (16,000 square feet) divided into two levels, seven galleries, and a beautiful garden. It was built along with the Grand Palais, located just in front of it, and the masterpiece romantic Alexander III Bridge. It has a picturesque inside garden. From there, you can see the amazing outside details of the dome. It’s a great place to take a break, it really makes you feel like you are miles away from the city. It’s like time traveling through art. The museum has an impressive collection (paintings, sculptures, objects). All the pieces in the museum were donated by collectors and art lovers. This museum is part of the network of City of Paris Museums, making its entrance free, and if you can you can leave a donation. I love Paris that it has several free accessible museums, monuments and churches. Making education available to everyone.
