We got there in the afternoon and only got through part of it. If you go to Musee Orsay, then save your ticket, because you can get 4 Euros of the entrance fee. The building is so elaborate, it is like Versaille. We wanted to...More

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle

cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
