    History of Paris has blocked all at once. Value without knowing the language of France found exhibits about revolutionary France, so go there! In addition, decorative collection area, town signs in the exhibition room of the first floor is recommended. Signs made from iron out antique atmosphere and modern. You can feel the history in a former noble residence that this building itself is also away from home.

    The old palace was built in the 16th century Carnival. Later, it was adapted into a museum. Visitors are waiting for the most interesting exhibition, covering all periods of life in the city. It was interesting that very carefully interiors impressed-everything in the right places, furniture, paintings, furniture, and even chandeliers.

    The Museum is currently closed for work, but I keep the great memories of my visits here down. The frame is in him even beautiful, in the heart of the Marais. Then, the collections are rich and is a real dive in Paris over the centuries. Special mention for the part devoted to the French revolution. The Museum is free allowing you to take your time to find out several times.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
