Paris in September

City of Art

The Musee' D'Orsay is a delightful art museum on the Left Bank. It was once a grand railroad station. Upstairs is a huge clock through which you can see the Louvre across the Seine.

On our final day in Paris we toured Napoleon's Tomb and hopped on the Opentour bus for a ride around the city.
