Full description
“My dear friend, your train station looks like a Palace of Fine Arts while our Palace of Fine Arts looks like a train station” is what the architect Victor Laloux heard in 1900 when his spectacular station was inaugurated. Nowadays this wonderful light and airy space is home to the Musée d’Orsay. Dedicated to the art of the second half of the 19th century, one of the most exciting and daring periods in artistic history, you will discover how the Impressionist movement burst onto the scene and changed the face of art forever. Follow your guide and step into a world of color and light. Monet, Manet, Van Gogh, Cezanne and Renoir, this museum is home to some of the greatest, and most recognizable works of art in the world. Witness up close the swirling colors of the artistic revolution, as your expert guide explains not only the artworks, but also the incredible changes that were also taking place in French society at the time. Learn about the colorful and often unconventional lives of the mythical artists represented here, many of whom lived and worked in Paris. It’s not surprising that this visit is also one of your guides’ favorites! Benefit from a small group visit with only 7 people or fewer, allowing for a relaxed and intimate visit of this spectacular collection.

Avi was our tour guide and was so knowledgeable and was a great joy to listen to during this tour. We were a group of 7 and it was just fine listen or ask questions. If we didn’t do that tour we would have passed on so many great facts and stories from some of those beautiful art! We feel that we visited this musée the best way and would recommend Avi as a tour guide! Thank you

Personable and informative guide

So helpful to my 89 year old mother - made sure she could hear and found lifts and escalators rather than stairs for us
