Full description
Located in the beautiful Beaux Arts building formerly used as the Gare d'Orsay railway station, the Musée d'Orsay is one of the best loved and most popular attractions in Paris.

Designed as an introduction for first-time visitors, this 2.5-hour private tour will get you to the museum’s highlights, as well as some lesser known gems, with the minimum of fuss and stress. Skip the long lines to enjoy priority entrance, then head to remarkable works by the French Impressionists and more.

Learn about the featured artists of the museum’s collection of 19th-century French art. Explore the backgrounds and individual styles of artists such as Manet, Renoir, Cézanne and Gauguin. As well as viewing some selected highlights, learn the secrets surrounding the techniques used by the Impressionists and post-Impressionists and discover how a handful of art rebels paved the way for the Impressionist art movement.
