What You Can Expect
See the venues that influenced their art, like the building where Van Gogh lived when he moved here from Holland. Van Gogh lovers believe it was here that he really found his personality as an artist, and then never looked back! Visit the Montmartre windmill that Renoir featured in his scandalous masterpiece Bal du moulin de la Galette, and walk past the Moulin Rouge cabaret that famously inspired Toulouse-Lautrec’s distinctive style of painting.
After 1.5 hours of strolling around Montmartre, learning about Impressionist art and its place in Paris, head to the Basilique du Sacré-Coeur to admire the spectacular view over Paris with your guide. This is where your tour finishes and before leaving, your guide will hand over your skip-the-line ticket to Musée d’Orsay, Paris’ famous Impressionist museum that you can visit independently.
Your guide will give you directions if you want to visit Musée d’Orsay straight away, or you can use your ticket to visit on another day of your choice. This mesmerizing gallery holds Paris’ largest collection of Impressionist art inside its beautiful building, a train station turned museum.
For art lovers especially for getting to know more about impressionism and impressionist artists of the 19th century this tour is a must. A morning walk along the hidden streets of beautiful Montmartre area of Paris with a highly knowledgeable and truly helpful guide made this a day to remember. The tour ended at the Sacre Ceour basilica with breathtaking views. The cherry on the cake was the afternoon visit to the Musee dOrsay.
Unfortunately it rained the entire tour but our guide was great - funny, informative, genuinely interested in the subject matter. Would highly recommend it to others visiting Paris even if they know the city well.
