Today we will travel by train and visit the Musee D’Orsay. It is housed in the former Gare d’Orsay, an impressive Beaux-Arts railway station built between 1898 and 1900. The museum holds mainly French art dating from 1848 to 1915, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, and photography. It is probably best known for its extensive collection of impressionist and post-impressionist masterpieces (the largest in the world) by such painters such as Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, Seurat, Sisley, Gauguin and Van Gogh. Greg will guide the group through the museum then there will be free time to explore the museum on your own.

DAY 7 Monday 29 May, 2023
Today we travel by coach to Giverny on the river Seine where we will visit Claude Monet’s famous garden and house. Monets house and gardens were a source of inspiration and became his life’s work. There he created in nature the motifs that became his obsession transporting the water lilies, boats and bridges of this garden onto his canvases. We will then continue onto Honfluer. Honfleur’s beauty has long attracted artists, with works of art to be found in the town’s many museums and galleries. Honfleur takes particular pride in its Impressionist roots – Claude Monet’s mentor Eugène Boudin was born in the town, and Monet and his contemporaries would often set up their easels at the Ferme Saint-Siméon on the hill above Honfleur, to capture the beautiful light of the Seine estuary. This evening there will be an included dinner.
DAY 8 Tuesday 30 May, 2023
This morning we will have a guided walking tour of this fascinating town.
