The first stop for any Van Gogh fans should be the Musée D’Orsay, which hosts an extensive impressionist and post-impressionist collection. The building itself is a work of art: the museum is housed in a renovated train station. The permanent collection contains 25 paintings by the Dutch painter. Some highlights are Van Gogh’s Starry Night Over the Rhone (1888), Vincent’s Bedroom in Arles (1889) and Self Portrait (1889). For those who plan to explore Van Gogh’s Montmartre, the Terrace of a Cafe on Montmartre (La Guinguette) will be particularly thrilling.
