On Day 6, it was back in Paris. The day started at the Musée Rodin, featuring the sculptor who worked in the same era and writers like Victor Hugo and the Impressionists , and collected some of their work. After that, it was off to the Arc de Triomphe and along the Champs d'Élysées to the Petit Palais, home of a free museum of art well worth seeing. The day ended at the Place de la Concorde, the place where Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette and many others lost their heads in 1793, just after the French Revolution.
