Full description
Skip the long lines to the beautiful Beaux Arts building that is now home to the Musée d’Orsay, and enter an alladin’s cave of French art. Located in a former railway station, the museum contains the world’s best collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art, although for a longtime it was overlooked.

Now you can learn about this unique period in art history, and see masterpieces by Monet, Courbet, Renoir, Cezanne, and Van Gogh. Along the way your guide will explain the social background and turmoil of the 19th century, providing an in-depth insight into the layered art works.

Highlights include “La Source” by Ingres, and “The Birth of Venus” by Bouguereau. Marvel at the realism of Courbet’s “L'Atelier du Peintre” (“The Artist’s Studio”) and “A Burial at Ornans.” See the exquisite colors of Manet’s “Breakfast on Grass” and the “Breakfast on Grass” by Monet. Other Monet paintings are the “Rue Montorgueil” and “Cathedrale de Rouen” series.

Admire Renoir’s “Bal du Moulin de la Galette,” and the “Still Life” by Cezanne, as well as Van Gogh’s “Auto-Portrait” and “Starry Night.”
