    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Musee d'Orsay, 1 Rue De La Legion d'Honneur, 75007 Paris France

    Join a guide on a tour through this converted, century-old train station and explore the artistic movements that led up to the Impressionists and their vibrant, colorful works. Visit Manet’s scandalous Luncheon on the Grass and Renoir’s Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette. Learn about those who preceded the Impressionists like Millet and The Gleaners, as well as those who followed like Van Gogh, as visible in his Bedroom in Arles. And of course you’ll check out works by Monet himself, including his famous poppies.
    Learn about the history and evolution behind this movement and understand why these seemingly simple works were so revolutionary at the time.
    Highlights generally include (if artwork is not on loan or being restored):
    • Manet’s Luncheon on the Grass 
    • Renoir’s Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette 
    • Monet’s Poppy Field and Waterlilies 
    • Van Gogh’s Bedroom in Arles 
    • Degas’s Ballerinas 
    • Millet’s The Gleaners

    Skip the long lines to enjoy priority entrance to the Orsay Museum
    Learn about techniques used by artists such as Van Gogh, Renoir, and more
    Discover the highlights and lesser known gems of the Orsay
    Admire the beautiful Beaux Arts building of the former rail station

    Had a wonderful tour with Lucien through the d’Orsay. He kept the tour entertaining and informative for our group which included two teens and an 8 year old! We left feeling rich in both art and history.

    Liliya was wonderful. I have been thru the museum twice without a guide in the past. There is no comparison. Liliya was so knowledgeable with details of the art history, and the artists and each painting. I can’t say enough how enjoyable this tour was....More
