AOL Travel Editor’s Review

It's hard to believe that the Marmottan is off the radar of most Paris vacation itineraries and even for many Parisians, considering it houses the largest Monet collection in the world. Fair enough, it is a bit out of the way (on the edge of the wooded Bois de Boulogne in a grand former hunting lodge) but it's inside central Paris’s ring road and easily reached by metro.

Seminal works include Monet's Impression: Sunrise (for which the Impressionist movement's named), along with many by Monet's friends (Gauguin, Sisley, Pissarro, Renoir, Degas and Manet among them). But the biggest treat is in the basement, where you'll find a magnificent series of Monet’s Waterlilies.

(Monet fans should also check out the eight massive Waterlilies canvases in two oval rooms at the Musée de l'Orangerie in the city center.)
