Strolling Through Paris is a brief blog series to get you excited for our Pin Your Way to Paris contest! These are our tips on must-see places in the City of Light. Whether you’re the winner of our contest or just plan on visiting one day, you’ll be set with a Miss KL-approved itinerary that is sure to make your vacation magnifique!
The Louvre, the Louvre, the Louvre. Does it ever seem like that’s all anyone talks about on their trips to Paris? Sure, the place is a gold mine when it comes to famous art, but it’s also completely impossible to manage in a single undertaking. While we would never tell a fellow traveler to pass up on an opportunity to see De Vinci’s Mona Lisa (it is, in all honesty, quite small), we would like to suggest an alternative option with slightly less renown. The Musée d’Orsay is located on the left bank of the infamous Seine river and is home to French art dating from 1848 to 1915. They are known for having the largest collection of impressionist and post-impressionist art including masterpieces by big names like Monet, Degas, and Van Gogh. Formerly a railroad station, the historical building opened as a museum in 1986 in an effort to bridge the gap between the Louvre and the National Museum of Modern Art. You can get an idea of the kind of art you would find below, though keep in mind that nothing can beat seeing it in person!
And just a reminder, today is the last day to enter the contest! There’s only a few hours left, so hurry up and good luck! (Ends at 6PM PST) Au revoir!
