What makes this tour special

The Louvre may be the most visited museum in Paris, however the Orsay is probably the most enjoyable. Housed in the Gare d’Orsay, and constructed by Victor Laloux for the 1900 World Fair, the Orsay Museum is one of Paris’ most beloved museums, devoted to a huge breadth of art from between 1848 to 1914. The museum also showcases France’s most complete collection of Impressionist and Post Impressionist art - indeed the golden age of art in Paris.

During the tour your expert city guide will help you navigate this huge collection to find the absolute best, world-famous as well as lesser known pieces. You will see numerous works by Monet, Renoir, Cézanne, Gauguin, and Van Gogh, discovering how these artists influenced the next generation. You will explore the most iconic artworks in the world, such as Vincent Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night over the Rhone’, Renoir’s ‘Bal du Moulin de la Galette’, and Cézanne’s 'Card players', and learn from your knowledgeable guide, about the stories behind these artworks and their creators along the way. 

What you'll see

'Starry Night Over the Rhone'
This painting is one of the highlights from the Musée d'Orsay’s Van Gogh collection.
‘Bal du Moulin de la Galette’
This Renoir work is one of Impressionism's most celebrated masterpieces, depicting romantic bourgeois Paris in the 1870s.
'Card Players'
This peaceful Cézanne painting is one of the Post-Impressionist’s most enduring works.
'Houses of Parliament'
A superlative example of the Impressionist style developed by Claude Monet, depicting the world in a way that no camera ever could.
