  • Very close to the Temple of Madeleine, well served by metro and bus, the Pinacoteca develops in a modern building, which has several rooms for a total of more than 2000 square meters, and three levels of exposure. Visited for the temporary exhibition dedicated to Karl Lagerfeld and fashion photographs, as regards the permanent I found disappointing, while there are a number of paintings of different periods, until you get to Warhol, Modigliani, Picasso ... There seemed no cohesion in the exposure, the captions were reduced and hovered a sense of coolness. I think we can do better and that Paris deserves a structured art gallery in another way.

  • I discovered the Pinacothèque of Paris during the exhibition on the Pressionnisme. To tell you the truth I didn't know what to expect it told me a lot about: sometimes in super positive, sometimes in big disappointment. Besides the reviews I had read right to left pretty much said the same thing. I spent a wonderful day. Full of escape and I was really attracted by the atmosphere of the place. The staging of the expo was really nice and interesting theme. I don't know why it had criticized the Pinacoteca. Yes the price of the ticket is a high chouille but honestly I got for my money. Don't hesitate to go see the collection permanently: the intimate with the works is super well made looks almost in a private room. In any case a different experience.

  • Exhibition space that offers great shows and exhibitions. Worth visiting. The Klimt exhibition, unfortunately, witnessed the embarrassing situation of a wheelchair that had difficulty getting around in certain area of the Museum, because there were gaps and stairs, hallways something close. Accessibility can be improved.

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.
