The dating dame
The Montparnasse district to the south is dominated by memories of the dead with the very extensive Montparnasse cemetery and also the entrance to the Paris catacombs, one of the best kept secrets and most remarkable sights in Paris.
The main attraction here is of course the Louvre itself, a royal residence during several centuries and now one of the most extensive art museums in the world.
You will of course discover many of these 'smaller' pleasures as you travel around Paris visiting the famous sights.
Try and remember that the journeys between the famous monuments are as much a part of the Paris experience as the monuments themselves, to be enjoyed slowly and preferably on foot rather than rushed through in a taxi or tour bus.
In the Jardin des Tuileries you can also visit the Musee de l'Orangerie with its impressive collection of impressionist and post-impressionist paintings, and the National Gallery of Jeu de Paume with its exhibitions by contemporary artists.
Next to the Louvre (to the north) is the Royal Palace (the Palais Royale).
