We scheduled a fantastic tour of the visiting collection from the Musee d'Orsay including Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cézanne. Room after room was filled with wonderful paintings we had only seen in photographs. To see them first hand up-close was fantastic.
Armed with an audio headset, we set off on our tour to hear the story about each painting.
The crowds were crazy. Being from Washington, D.C., where the museums are free and plentiful, we were not used to such a short exhibit with a price tag of $26 that was completed in under an hour's time. However we still thoroughly enjoyed seeing such an array amazing paintings which we missed on our last vacation to Paris.
