Instead of queuing for hours to get into the Louvre, try the nearby Orangerie instead.

It's an essential destination for fans of Monet and the other impressionists.

You can see some of Monet's water lily paintings here, in rooms designed specially to house them.

There are also works by Matisse, Cรฉzanne and Renoir.
