Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It's a small apartment building and Van Gogh lived here for a number of months in a small apartment. There is a plaque on the building noting his residence, but this is not a museum. I don't know any way to get inside, but one would not want to disturb the residents. I've walked past it dozens of times.

Our trip was amazing we had a great time. We found van Gogh‘s apartment and we had the correct address problem as there was no plaque. We went back and reviewed our photos and sure enough there was space for a plaque and there was evidence that there should’ve been something… But nothing!

No 54, Rue Lepic holdds a plaque on the wall that Vincent Van Gogh lived here with his brother Theo from 1886 to 1888. That is it, it is a small street and has a view that was painted by Van Gogh. I visited it as I like his paintings, and I was visiting neighbourhood.
So, if you are around, drop by, as there is only a plaque to see, there is no museum or any room to visit. But do not go out of the way to see it. It is in Montmartre and walking the streets itself is one of the charm of the area, so do come across it while taking a "promenade" in this beautiful part of Paris.

In Auvers Sur Oise, a small little town about two hours from Paris one can see the last few days Van Gogh spent in this little town. His tiny room had the bare minimum ..just a little chair and a tiny little bed. It was here that he was believed to have returned after shooting himself and walking back telling everybody he had shot himself in the event of his detoriating mental health. You can also vist his grave in the cemetery buried alongside his brother Theo. Quiet a quaint little town but close enough to get to if you are a VanGogh art lover.

As Ibis Montmartre is not far away, I took a walk to visit Mr. V.V.Gogh's house, Rue Lepic no.54. I found the place, took pictures from the outside, but I could not get in even if it is indicated as museum on maps. It was Saturday morning. I met a tour guide who explained that the artist lived on the 3rd floor in a 36sq.m apartment with his brother Theo (who tried hard to save Vincent from his disruptive personality) , for a couple of years. It was interesting discovering that at no.50 of the same road lived Edgar Degas. Well, being there allowed me to share a bit of the famous artists' everyday life. Exciting for me!

If you are staying nearby, go by and check it out. If nothing, the Rue Lepic street has plenty of eateries and it’s near Parc Montceau.

It’s basically an apartment block with a plaque stating that Van Gogh lived there. I googled that this is the apartment he shared with his brother and sister-in-law for about 2 years or less. This isn’t the place that he took his own life or did anything drastic besides noise.

Peaceful street and getting here got me to read up more of his life here at Rue Lepic.

Walking down Rue Lepic either downhill or uphill one can see number 54 which was the former home of Vincent Van Gogh and his brother Theo in the late 1800's.. Quite a large house here in a similar style and would have been a good base for some of his ideas as wandered this area...Very distinctive Blue Door gives it all away. Unfortunately other than some cafes and pricey restaurants not much else in this small area of Rue Le Pic

We took a guided tour of this town, part of which showed the house where he once lived, then up the hill to the church of Auvers, and finally to the cemetery where Vincent and his brother Theo are buried. Along the way we saw many of the views Vincent captured in his paintings.

If you go on a tour on this area and don't know nothing, and your boyfriend is a huge fan of Van Goh, this is an amazing place, even if it is just a plaque there, on the other side of the street there is a nice wellness shop to buy some foods

You probably know there is nothing here, but anyway....yes, there is a plaque. It says they lived there, Vincent Van Gogh and his brother Theo. If you are in the area, it might be worth walking by. If you are up higher in Montmartre, FYI, this is a walk downhill (and then you have to walk back up), so probably not worth it...that is what I did, so I learned.
