I went to Pere Lachaise a few years ago. The Jewish & Holocaust part of the cemetery is beautiful, very moving. The area around Jim Morrison's grave is depressing. I think they should move him away because the majority of people visiting his grave have no respect for their surroundings.

A shame about the queues at Musée d'Orsay... I think it was my favourite when we last visited a couple of years ago (it even has a nice little Walthamstow corner coutesy of William Morris).

The Musée is also the only place in the world (I think) I've been told to put my shoes back on (it was hot that day!)

Hang on a minute. Are you telling us you went to ALL these places in just one day or am I missing something?

Agreement with NiC - I never understand why people queue so long to get into the Louvre when the Musee d'Orsay is twice as good, half as busy and just across the river. Forget the Mona Lisa, here you get Monet's Poppyfield, Whistler's Mother, Van Gogh's Bedroom at Arles, Manet's Dejeuner sur l'Herbes, Renoir's Dancing at the Moulin de la Galette, and countless other of the most instantly recognisable artworks in the world.

If you buy one of the attraction tickets on sale at Waterloo (1, 3 or 5 days IIRC) you can get into a lot of places 'free' - and get priority entrance to the Louvre, Musee d'Orsay etc.
