Art trips in Paris

No doubt the reason Paris is such an enduringly popular destination for school art trips is the variety of visits on offer here. Broadening the outlook of your students is easy, whether exploring the artworks on display in the city’s many museums and galleries, or browsing the pavement cafés of Montmartre, favoured haunts of the great artists in days gone by.

The Eiffel Tower, built in 1889 and a global icon, is one of the most visited structures in the world, and a must-visit for any school trip to Paris. The panoramic views from the top are astounding, but it’s during the ascent that one is best able to gauge the intricate design of this unique construction.

A coach journey from central Paris, along the bank of the Seine, is the commune of Giverny, and the house and garden of Claude Monet which is now a museum. A founding member of the French Impressionist movement, Monet moved into the house, where he would produce many of his most important works, in 1883. The blissfully peaceful surroundings of the area became a colony for many other artists. The best time to visit is unquestionably summer, when the flowers are in bloom.

The Louvre, the world’s largest and most-visited museum, is a key visit on any art trip to Paris. Divided into eight sections such as Islamic art, Egyptian antiquities and Sculpture, a full day here is recommended. We have no doubt your students will find inspiration along every corridor of this magnificent building.

It’s fitting that a building showcasing some of the finest contemporary art and design should be a work of art itself. A superb example of high-tech architecture, with its exposed colour-coded structure the Pompidou Centre was initially controversial, but has now become one of the most popular and best-loved attractions in Paris.

The Musée D'Orsay, set in a former railway station. It boasts the largest collection of impressionist and post-impressionist masterpieces in the world, by painters such as Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, Seurat and Gauguin. Students can also view sculptures, furniture and photography.
