    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Musee d'Orsay, 1 Rue De La Legion d'Honneur, 75007 Paris France

    Join a guide on a tour through this converted, century-old train station and explore the artistic movements that led up to the Impressionists and their vibrant, colorful works. Visit Manet’s scandalous Luncheon on the Grass and Renoir’s Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette. Learn about those who preceded the Impressionists like Millet and The Gleaners, as well as those who followed like Van Gogh, as visible in his Bedroom in Arles. And of course you’ll check out works by Monet himself, including his famous poppies.

    Learn about the history and evolution behind this movement and understand why these seemingly simple works were so revolutionary at the time.

    • Manet’s Luncheon on the Grass

    • Monet’s Poppy Field and Waterlilies 
    • Van Gogh’s Bedroom in Arles
