Visiting France? Let these famous Parisian paintings serve as your travel guide. Raffles Hotel created the infographic below, which provides tourists with a round-up of classic gallery works depicting the City of Light. It tells you the scene's real-life location (and if it no longer exists, which buildings are there now), and it also provides a few bits of historic trivia about each work. Plus, if you want to see the painting in person, the infographic lets you know where it's on display today. Bon voyage!
