Nissim Camondo Museum (Musée Nissim De Camondo)

Today the Nissim Camondo Museumis kept just as it was when he lived there, and three floors are open to visitors.

Obelisk of Luxor
2 Activities
In the 19th century, the Egyptian government gave two obelisks to France. One—the Luxor Obelisk—was taken from the entrance of the Luxor Temple and transported to Paris in 1833. The second never left the country and was formally given back to the Egyptians in the 20th century.

It occupies pride of place in Place de la Concorde, Paris’ largest public square and site of the revolution’s most infamous guillotine executions.Today, the Luxor Obeliskis a celebrated symbol of the city and of peace.
