Lonely Planet review

The Gobelins Factory has been weaving haute lisse (high relief) tapestries on specialised looms since the 18th century along with Beauvais-style basse lisse (low relief) ones and Savonnerie rugs. Superb examples are showcased in its gallery; factory visits (1½ hours), by guided tour, take you through the ateliers (workshops) and exhibits of the thousands carpets and tapestries woven here.

Buy tickets in advance at Fnac or turn up well ahead of time for same-day tour tickets.
