  • So is a small museum scale. On Sunday of the first week in October and visited that's free but crowded staff. The lovely courtyard and you can relax. See the entrance is located on the corner of small rotary.

  • This museum is set in the atelier of Delacroix. You see where he lived and worked and learn about his life, plus see some of his works. Very sweet. And the Place de Furstemberg is one of the most love...  more »

  • Nice little place mostly dedicated to artist's work. Little garden is absolutely quiet in the middle of rush hour. Enter for free with the same day Louvre tickets. Unless you are a real Delacruix connoisseur it won't take much time to visit. Almost nothing in English.
  • Very little of his art on display. Nice garden. Lovely neighborhood but very difficult to find his house/museum
  • Nearly hidden on a quiet square, you should definitely drop-in to see the collection when you take a tour of the Left Bank.
  • Small museum run by people who really really like Delacroix. However this is a great place to pick up Louvre tickets.
  • A stone's throw from Saint-Germain-des-Prés church, a little jewel box museum with a very pleasant garden.

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.
