St-Germain-des-Prés

Making the Most of Your Time

Aim for an early start—have a café crème at a café along the river and get to the Musée d'Orsay early, when crowds are thinner. Leave some time for window-shopping around the Boulevard St-Germain and Rue de Rennes on your way to the Jardin du Luxembourg. You might want to plan your visit on a day other than Monday, when the Orsay, many of the art galleries, and even some shops are closed. The Maillol museum is open every day and late on Friday while the Delacroix is closed on Wednesday.
