  • Description

    This offer is valid for two of the most popular Parisian activities, a visit to the Musée d'Orsay (with priority access) and an exciting cruise on the River Seine.

    The beautifully adorned architectural masterpiece that is the Musée d'Orsay today has a very rich history. Before becoming the museum you see today, it was a train station; the Gare d'Orsay, which was built for the Universal Exhibition of 1900. This train station operated for nearly half a century before being reconverted and opening its doors as a museum in 1986. Before it ever became a train station and later a museum, however, the site was originally occupied by the Palais d'Orsay which was burned down by soldiers of the Paris Commune in 1871.

    It is now home to one of the largest collections of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings, including Edouard Manet's famous Luncheon on the Grass and Gustave Courbet's l'Origine du Monde (Origin of the World). It's not all paintings however, the museum has a rich and diverse collection of cultural works including many sculptures and photographs.

    Once you've quenched your thirst for art, head for the banks of the Seine and jump on board one of Paris's famous riverboats and observe the capital while navigating peacefully the river which divides the city into its two halves, the left bank, and right bank. It's a perfect opportunity to photograph some of the city's most beautiful monuments from one of its most privileged vantage points; the River Seine itself.
