The Jardin des Tuileries is one of Paris's most visited gardens thanks to its central location between the Louvre and Place de la Concorde. As such the Tuileries are part of a grand central axis leading from the Louvre all the way to La Défense, the city's business district. Jardin des Tuileries is one of those parks where you can grab a chair for free and sit wherever you like. Features several fountains, two large basins, numerous sculptures and two museums.
In the heart of the fashionable Marais district in Paris, the Picasso Museum is dedicated to the famous Spanish painter Pablo Picasso (1881-1973). The Picasso Museum is housed in Hotel Sale, a superb 1656 city mansion, close to Centre Pompidou.
The Musée de Cluny, known as Musée National du Moyen Âge (National Museum of the Middle Ages), is located in the 5th arrondissement at 6 Place Paul Painlevé. Among the principal holdings are the six La Dame à la Licorne (The Lady and the Unicorn) tapestries, from the late fifteenth century, often considered one of the greatest works of art of the Middle Ages in Europe. The museum is located in a 15th century Gothic mansion.
The Panthéon, an imposing 19th century building, was first designed as a church, but later turned into a civil temple/ tomb of a number of France's most famed men and women. It is located on top of the montagne Ste-Geneviève, not far from the Sorbonne University and the Jardin du Luxembourg, the Panthéon looks over the Quartier Latin.
Tucked away in a corner of northeastern Paris, the cemetery is affectionately called la cite des morts-- the city of the dead-- by Parisians. With its rolling hills, thousands of trees, winding paths with carefully plotted "street" names, and elaborate sepulchers and tombs, it's easy to see why Pere-Lachaise is considered Paris' most hauntingly beautiful place of rest. And countless great figures have their resting place here, including Chopin, Proust, Colette, or Jim Morrison.

Musee Rodin

This is one of our favourite small Museums. The Musée Rodin  is in the 7th arrondissement. This couldn’t be more beautiful. The building contains various incredible sculpture works including the personal collection of Rodin. The stunning garden (can be visited separately) is dotted with sculptures and is nothing short of a magical fairytale. This mansion and garden offer visitors a glimpse of a world possessing serene beauty. There is a wonderful café outdoors for lunch too.
