Why You'll Love It

The two greatest museums of Paris in one tour is the perfect way to get introduced to Art History and see it all come to life.

At the Louvre

We start by the Louvre, the largest museum in the world. Once a royal fortress and palace, it became the National Art Gallery during the French Revolution. A revolutionary idea was in march : educate the people by showing them the most beautiful art pieces. 

Walking through the collection would have us travel to Ancient Civilizations (Egypt, Greece, Rome) and see how Art has evolved from the Italian Renaissance to the French classicism. A mesmerizing journey in the mind of geniuses such as Da Vinci, Raffaello, Delacroix or David.

But one cannot visit the Louvre without paying respect the Three Ladies of the Louvre : Venus de Milo, the most gracious antique statue; the Winged Victory of Samothrace, or the most powerful antique statue; and of course Mona Lisa, or the most adored portrait in history.

At Musee d’Orsay

After a nice stroll through the Louvre garden and crossing a bridge on the river Seine, the tour continues to the Musee d’Orsay, specialized in all Art forms from the 1800’s. 

You will understand how the world Art was so shaken by the revolutions in Europe, both on the political and technical matters. The invention of modern democracies as well as the industrialization of our cities created a unique combo to free the artists from the constraints of the past.

Discover how a band of friends created the Impressionist movement and changed painting for eternity. Gaze at Monet’s Water Lilies, Degas’ Dancers or Renoir’s bal scenes. Witness the battle between Ingres the conservative and Delacroix the liberal. And get into the mind of Van Gogh, Cezanne or Gaugin by immersing yourself in their tormented paintings.

After this private tour of the Louvre and Orsay museum, your vision of Art will be changed forever.
