The art pieces found! Two of my all time favourite artists are Van Gogh and Claude Monet. To be able to see their work in person was such a thrill and a rollercoaster of emotions.

The Starry nights. I had wanted to visit the Orsay museum only to see this Van Gogh masterpiece! The guided tour is an excellent way to explore the museum and find out everything about the great impressionist masterpieces. It’s great to book this on the website as otherwise I would have missed on this incredible opportunity.
