European Museums

 

Bit of a culture vulture?

A strong selection of museums is an absolute must for your dream destination. Here are a couple of our favourites:

 

The Louvre/Musée d’Orsay, Paris

One of the world’s most reputable and prestigious museums, the Louvre is home to some of the most awe-inspiring and critically acclaimed artistic works in modern history. Gaze upon the ethereal glow of Goya’s Countess del Carpio, marvel at the timeless aesthetics of AlexandrosVenus de Milo and be intrigued by the enigmatic beauty of Da Vinci’s famous Mona Lisa.

If you’ve managed to imbibe all the culture The Louvre has to offer and still have room for a bit more, just take a leisurely stroll across the river to the equally jaw-dropping Musée d’Orsay. Beautifully situated on the banks of the river Seine, this critically-acclaimed collection boasts pieces from Monet, Manet, Matisse and countless other European masters.

Whether your fascination is Hellenic history, postmodernist painters or the French revolution, Paris is an undeniable trove of historical treasures.
