Arrive Paris:
After checking in, use your provided Paris TripBuilder CityGuide to navigate to landmarks such as the Musée d'Orsay. Once a famous train station, the d'Orsay has been repurposed as one of the world's finest museums, with the world's largest collection of Impressionist and post-Impressionist paintings. The view of Paris from the top floor, by the large clock, is quite striking. After seeing the museum, you can stroll along the River Seine towards the Cathedral Notre-Dame, and seek out a quiet Left Bank bistro for dinner before returning to your hotel. If you've walked enough, you can use your 3-day Paris Visite Card to access the Paris Metro.
