This bourgeois home built in 1823 was built for Ary Scheffer. It remained in the family unil 1983 and the home became a Musée de Paris. George Sand, F.Chopin, Delacroix, Rossini etc came to visit and converse. The many rooms have different exhibits, I was...More

House and atelier of painters, it was the place where artists met for evenings of music, poetry and paintings. It has a special connection to Frederic Chopin and George Sand, both emblematic of romanticism. It exudes sensibility and passion, with fascinating biographic details.

A pretty house from the early 19th Century houses a special collection. The garden and its cafe are a special attraction. Come here after you've been to the famous museums.

Not worth the effort. The rooms were so poorly lit the artwork was difficult to see. Also, it was unbearably hot and smelly, not what we expected for a "renovation."

Just a fascinating place to see. Very much worth a visit if you’re in the neighborhood along with the Musee de Montmartre. Small, so around two hours will do.

Very close from Montmartres and the Moulin Rouge... The entrance is beautiful: you pay 8 € to visit this tiny house. You can learn about the french movement of "romantique". If you like the Georges Sand, go there.. and find out why.... There is a...More

This is a quirky little place at the bottom of Montmartre. You enter through a narrow tree-lined alley which opens into a courtyard and several buildings. We went to see the Pierre-Joseph Redouté exhibit. Beyond that, it is the former house of the artist Ary...More

We found this place almost boring and over priced. There is no catering for English speaking guests and as such we completely wasted our money. Even the people at the entrance spoke no English.

Very beautiful corner in the heart of Paris. It's a small garden with a very calm surrounding. Loved it!

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
