  • Great information, history, and wonderful atmosphere. However barely any staff speak English, and not every room has an English translated info card
  • I was fortunate to visit this place......an amazing architecture....
  • Date: 22/08/2016 site visit: Musée du Petit Palais Este Museum is found in one corner of the Esplanade where is located the Palace of the popes, exactly next to the mountain of Rocher des Doms. It houses mostly Italian and Provencal 13th century and paintings 16th. There are also Gothic and Romanesque sculptures. The entrance with the PASS card (free) is 3 euros.

  • I really liked the petit palais Museum, but it's pretty little immersive and interactive!
