The Carnavalet museum is located a few steps away from the Place des Vosges, in the historical district of Le Marais. This quiet place is a delight for lovers of French History in general and Paris History in particular since it traces the history of the City of Lights from its origin to the present. This museum is interesting as much for the diversity and richness of its collections than for its beautiful architecture and setting. It is housed in two mansions from the 16th and 17th centuries: the Hotel Carnavalet, where Madame de Sevigne lived for three decades and the Hôtel Le Peletier. Do not miss this this beautiful museum rarely crowded but worth a visit !
