Paris Day 2 -Musee d’Orsay and Montmartre

Eleven hours of rest and we are ready to hit the road again. Our evening lasted till 130 in the morning including a dinner cruise on the Seine on Bateaux Parisens which took us along the scenic highlights of Paris. 

Due to work on the RER, we had to take the bus to Thierry and Jerome’s. Quite an adventure. 
Anyway, we are off to the Musee d’Orsay to take in the collection of impressionist paintings. Tip, always start the tour from the top on the 5th floor. That way you get the highlights first. The museum is too large fir an efficient visit in one day, not to mention the crowds. Don’t forget to stop at the cafe in the rooftop alcoves where you get a panoramic view of the city roofline through the face of a clock. It is an artistic expression of this city in love with the arts. 

Then it’s on to the Montmartre area with the Sacre Coeur and Place du Tertre. 

Images to follow tonight.

  1. We visited this museum per Rene’s suggestion and did a small group guided tour – was supposed to be 2 hours but we all wanted more and the guide enjoyed our group so we spent almost 4 hours there! Highly recommend.

  2. Wish I had known about how to tour the Musee d’Orsay when I traveled there some ten years ago. I loved it anyway and feel like I must make a return trip someday. I loved the Montmartre area with the Sacre Coeur and Place du Tertre and applaud your plans. In fact, I stayed in a tiny hotel right on the square of the Montmartre right where the famous underground station is located. What a colorful area. I’m green with envy. 🙂
