Get ready for two hours of art and culture with this private guided tour of Musée d'Orsay.

Firstly, you will be introduced to the fascinating history of the museum and learn about the Italian architect Gae Aulenti and how she turned an abandoned station into a museum.

You will walk where the train once ran, and admire the art from the mid-nineteenth century to 1914. You will cover realism, impressionism, post-impressionism and art-nouveau. You will discuss Delacroix, Ingres, Courbet, Daumier, Millet, Manet, Monet, Degas, Renoir, Rodin, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Toulouse-Lautrec and many others.
