  • Château De Versailles

    The Château de Versailles, which has been on UNESCO’s World Heritage List for 30 years, is one of the most beautiful achievements of 18th-century French art and architecture. The palace had its beginnings as a humble hunting lodge built by Louis XIII in the country village of Versailles, but Louis XIV chose to build a majestic physical manifestation of his power in the lodge's place and move the court and government to the site in order to secure his position as king after the Fronde. Each of the three French kings who lived there until the French Revolution added improvements to make it more beautiful. As well as being the seat of power in France until 1789, Versailles has come to embody both royal absolutism and classical French art. 

  • Musée de la Vie...

    Built in 1830 in the area of “New Athens”, this museum stands at the foot of Montmartre hill. Now made up of a courtyard, garden and two artist ateliers, the building remained for many decades the familial residence of Ary Scheffer, a Dutch-French Romantic painter. It was, therefore, within this space that many of the most prominent figures of the Romantic period gathered; George Sand, Charles Dickens, Eugène Delacroix, Frédéric Chopin are just a few of the names that were invited to many of the soirées held in this residence.

  • Cluny Museum - Musée...

    The French National Museum of the Middle Ages, best known as the Cluny Museum, offers an overview of the art and culture of Europe and the Middle East during the Middle Ages. The place was originally the site of Gallo-Roman thermal baths that date back to the 1st century. In the 13th century it became the residence of the Abbots of Cluny, and in 1560 it was chosen by Mary Stuart as her living quarters for a brief period of time. The property continued tochange owners until 1833, when Alexandre du Sommerard moved in along with his magnificent collection of Medieval and Renaissance art. After his death, his collection was bought by the State and the museum opened its doors to the public in 1843.

  • Musée National Picasso

    Works by one of the best-known 20th-century artists In the Hôtel Salé are displayed many of the works of Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Martyr Patricio Clito Ruíz y Picasso, a man whose art is as impressive as his name.

    Deservedly one of the best-known artists of the 20th-century, the Spanish painter and sculptor was one of the founders of the cubism movement. As well as renowned paintings by the artist, e.g. Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, a selection of his ceramics and statues are also shown - many of which were only revealed to the public after his death.

    In addition, alongside Picasso's art you will find items from his own personal collection, including works by Cézanne, Degas and Matisse, allowing the visitor to see the art admired by and which perhaps inspired the great Pablo Picasso.
