Musee d’Orsay – Paris 2007

leave a comment »

Last summer I visited Paris.  I had a lot of time to roam the city and look for those places that are special.  There’s no doubt the Louvre is a great museum and it’s collection, including the Mona Lisa, is spectacular.  However, I became of fan of the Musee d’Orsay, the Impressionist Museum, across the Seine and just a short distance from the Louvre.  It’s collection of impressionist art is extensive.  But what stands out to me is it’s atmosphere.  The combination of the central arcade with its expansive and well-lit ambience and the sitting areas where one can sit back and gaze at the wonderful glass ceiling and artwork is unmatched.

I recommend that anyone who travels to Paris spend some time there.  You will not be disappointed.
