Museum
“Must visit. To me it is the third place in Europe after Salvador Dali's museum in Figueres and Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. Mind-blowing! Tour guides are gods there, never mind the French accent. If you speak French, just take the native guide. Did you know it is officially Paris inside this house?”
