Petit Palais

We stumbled upon the Petit Palais by accident while walking along the Champs Elysées. We were attracted by the spectacular glass roof of its counterpart, the Grand Palais, which stands opposite.

The Petit Palais is Paris’s fine arts museum, and entry is free. It was worth popping in just for the architecture and the tranquil courtyard hidden within.
