• Fine art in Paris

    2010-08-30

    Travelers will find museums everywhere on their European travels, but none so more than the city of Paris, where some of the most famous art in the world awaits.

    Visitors will invariably be drawn to the Louvre, and it's a mistake to underestimate the sheer amount of priceless art contained within the walls. Novice travelers will be familiar with pieces like the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo, but those truly interested in the arts could likely spend weeks going through the treasure trove of sculptures, paintings and artifacts from bygone eras.

    Yet assuming the Louvre is the only museum in town worth visiting would be a colossal error. Travelers shouldn't leave the city without spending some time at the Musee d'Orsay, home to a number of paintings by artists like Van Gogh, Renior and Monet. They'll find paintings of a similar caliber at the Musee de l'Orangerrie, with Cezannes, Picassos and Matisses all finding homes on the walls. In fact, for fans of Impressionist or Post Impressionist artwork there may be no better city in the world.
