Musee d’Orsay Clock

A couple snapshots of the beautiful beaux-arts gallery, the Musee d’Orsay. Orsay features an impressive collection of impressionist and post-impressionist masterpieces in addition to a variety of sculptures, furniture and photography.

My favorite part of the visit is the museum itself, which was once the Orsay railway station. It’s quite surprising how a train station could be reshaped into a gallery for art – but maybe that’s yet another sign of how beautiful Paris is architecturally, that anything can be re-purposed!

If you visit, make sure you climb all the way to the top for a unique view of the rooftop clocks!

Pst – did you know you can get into the Musee d’Orsay for free with the Paris Pass? It includes 60+ museums/attractions as well as unlimited metro, bus and tram rides. Well worth it!

 

Visiting Paris – Travel Checklist

We took a red eye to Paris from JFK. You can find cheap Paris flights from low cost carriers almost all year round – check for flight deals here.

Paris has some of the best museums in the world. I spent an entire summer living in the city, visiting different churches, museums and historic homes and still couldn’t get enough. If you plan to sightsee, look into a Paris Pass – it’s a great value! The pass can be purchased for multiple days and allows you to skip the line at 60+ attractions. See the full list of included sights and attractions here.

Lastly, be sure to visit Paris with travel insurance. Whether you get injured and need to be hospitalized, or your phone gets stolen, or an injury forces you to cancel all or part of your vacation, travel insurance will help when you need it most. Get a quote for your trip here.
