The trip was getting close to an end, and I still have a lot to check off on my list! These might not be the most common attractions, but they are definitely worth the visit.
Père Lachaise Cemetery
I got up early to go to this famous cemetery. The cemetery was very quiet and beautiful, but slightly creepy if you were there by yourself. The cemetery is really big and I was trying to find tombs of some famous people, but I couldn't. This is definitely the most crowded cemetery I have seen in terms of the number of gravestones. I thought it doesn't accept any new burials because it looks so crowded, but then I saw online that it does. Anyways, definitely worth a visit. I still remember I missed the La Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires by 10 mins, so I made sure I didn't miss it this time.
Besides Louvre, this is one other must-see museum! It contains the largest collection of impressionist and post-impressionist paintings in the world, including Monet and Van Gogh.
I couldn't believe I missed it the other day when I was in Notre Dame. This is also on the island, and this is the most impressive churches I have ever seen. It might be small in size, and might not look as impressive from the outside, but once you got in and see the stained glass.... Oh my.... I was in total awe. If I remembered it correctly, 70% of the stained glass in there was original, and it has one of the most extensive 13th-century stained glass collections in the world. I was lucky that the day I went, it was a sunny day, so the sun shined through the stained glass, and it was amazing. Absolutely must-see.
Musée Marmottan Monet
I made it there just right before it closed! Monet is one of my favorite painters, and I would not miss this for the world. It houses the largest collection of Claude Monet's works in the world, along with other impressionist and post-impressionist works. The museum does not allow photography, but I did take one (shame on me), and look at that! A whole floor of Monet's paintings of lilies. Stunning.
I only have one full day left in Paris, and I planned to make the most of it! I was determined to finish off my list tomorrow.
