Paris was always a hub for 19th-century Impressionist trendsetters—think Monet, Morisot, Degas, Lebourg, and Gaugin—many of whom went on to be some of the most popular artists in history. Read on to find out where to see their famous works.

Musée d'Orsay
Originally a train station, this Impressionism museum pays homage to artists such as Picasso, van Gogh, Monet, Modigliani, Renoir, and Manet, all of whom lived or worked in France. Book a skip-the-line ticket to spend less time waiting and more time inside admiring the greats.

Musée de l'Orangerie
Most famous for being the permanent home of eight of Monet’s Water Lilies murals, this museum is located in Paris' atmospheric Tuileries Gardens. Dive into its collections and history on a private guided museum tour.

Musée Marmottan Monet
Housed in the former hunting lodge of the Duke of Valmy, the Musée Marmottan is as impressive from the outside as it is inside. Skip the line on a guided tour to see the world’s largest collection of Monet's works.

Montmarte
The Impressionists found a wealth of subjects to paint in Paris, with the banks of the Seine River providing endless possibilities to satisfy their artistic genius. On a tour of the bohemian Montmartre neighborhood, stroll by the landmarks that inspired these legendary artists.

Chatou
This now-affluent Parisian neighborhood is home to Île des Impressionnistes, an island in the Seine River that was a popular spot for the Impressionists to sit and paint. A walking tour is a great way to learn more about the area.

Giverny
As Monet gained recognition, he moved from Paris to Giverny, embracing a laidback country life and painting the great outdoors in idyllic peace. Walk through his famous gardens on a tour and head inside his house to see artifacts from his daily life.
