Make your way to the front entrance of the Musée d'Orsay, where you will meet your guide by the large statue of an elephant.
Skip the often-long line for entry to the famous museum and proceed directly inside with your small group of 20 people or fewer. Begin your exploration of the world-renowned collection, featuring iconic works reproduced on posters, magnets and t-shirts.
Learn about the Impressionist period through the world's largest collection of Impressionist paintings. Get up close and see the individual brushstrokes on some of the most famous paintings, a painting technique that was fervently criticized at the time. See works by many French painters such as Renoir, Degas and Monet. Although Van Gogh was Dutch, his famous Starry Night is a representation of the French city of Arles, overlooking the Rhône. View Renoir’s Impressionist masterpiece Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette, a depiction of a typical Sunday afternoon in the Parisian district of Montmartre. Through your guide's commentary, allow yourself to be transported to Renoir’s 19th century Paris, where his dancing, drinking Parisians eating galettes will come to life.
After your 2-hour tour has concluded, feel free to spend as long as you like exploring the collection on your own.
