Description

A visitor will quickly understand why the Musée d’Orsay is consistently ranked the favorite museum of Parisians themselves. Built over 100 years ago as a train station welcoming international visitors to the World’s Fair, the Beaux-Arts structure now displays the best art from that period, making it an essential visit during your stay in the City of Lights. Enjoy listening to your expert guide, who will be eager to open your eyes to artistic passion. Believe it or not, the impressionists’ peaceful scenes of rural and city life were thought absolutely shocking when they were painted. The vivid colors and expressive brushstrokes truly shook the foundations of the artistic establishment. Your guide will bring to life the turbulent personalities of the painters, describing how each artist dared to explore new territory and to pursue success without compromise. Traveling back in time, you’ll learn how these images and messages changed the art world forever. See all the major highlights and many other beautiful masterpieces along the way. Stay in the galleries as long as you wish to further explore the collection or perhaps take in a special exhibition.
