Musée de l’Orangerie| Paris

I’ve visited Paris several times and even lived in the city for an entire year, but I never had the chance to visit Musée de l’Orangerie. A treat for Monet’s eight water-lily canvases (Nymphéas), painted 1909-26, and donated by the artist to be displayed in two specially conceived, elliptical rooms.

The museum is located at Jardin des Tuileries and Monet paintings are just one of the reasons why you should visit it. The prices aren’t expensive, it’s not very crowded and it has several other collections worth visit.

I’ve put together a selection of my favourite paintings:
