A full-day tour with a visit of Monet's house in Giverny followed by a visit of Auvers-sur-Oise where many painters, disciples of Van Gogh were staying. Visit of Van Gogh's grave and the Auberge Ravoux where he lived until his death.
Vincent Van Gogh lived the last year of his life in the village of Auvers sur Oise; we will tour and discover this peaceful and tranquil retreat situated on the banks of the Oise River. Prized by other painters as an inspired setting the Oise River drew many artists to its beauty as it flowed through Auvers. Painters such as Sisley Monet Pisarro Renoir and later Van Gogh came here to paint and form the beginnings of the Impressionist period in art.
From here we will venture out to see the cemetary where both Vincent Van Gogh and his brother Theo Van Gogh have been buried.
Our guide will take you into the village where you will see the magnificent church built in the XII century Notre Dame d'Auvers. It the church that Van Gogh painted in his famous work L'église d'Auvers-sur-Oise. Immortalized in this painting the church and surrounding area are just as they were at the time of Van Gogh. You will feel the tranquility and inspiration that have remained as it was at the beginning of the 20th century.
