The Petit Palais has a little-visited permanent collection, as well as temporary exhibitions which are on a less grand scale than the Grand Palais across the street. I went to the Petit Palais today for the Impressionists in London show. It’s a practically total misnomer,...More

The cafe was self-service when I was there and the line was long and slow even for a beverage so I did not eat there. The outdoor part was not set up for outdoor seating in winter. I would think it would be more enjoyable to... More
