The Little Palace: a magnificent building

  • Le petit Palais is the Museum of Fine Arts of the City of Paris which includes collections of paintings and sculptures from antiquity to the 1920s
  • This museum exhibits works of major artists such as Ingres, Ingres, Géricault, Delacroix, Cézanne, Bonnard and Maillol ... Nevertheless, in our opinion, the permanent collection will interest art lovers
  • The building which dates from the 1900 World's Fair and its inner courtyard is really worth the detour. It's got a crazy charm!
  • The Petit Palais regularly organizes temporary exhibitions. These are paying and are of high quality

The café-restaurant of the Petit Palais is a very pleasant place

  • The café-restaurant at the Petit Palais, located in its inner courtyard is a very pleasant place for a lunch break or a snack.
  • It is a self-service café that serves very simple and very good dishes (pies, quiches, salads, cakes...)
  • It is a place that we especially recommended on sunny days to take advantage of the tables placed under the rotunda on the inner patio.
  • You can have lunch or a snack by a mosaic-lined pool, under romantic colonnades and in the middle of exotic vegetation...  It's a place that has a crazy charm!
  • The access to the café is free, you can go there without visiting the museum
