The itinerary

Ok, you’ve checked all those must-see sights off your Paris list. Now what? You can sense there are plenty more experiences beneath the surface, but finding those hidden gems can be tricky. That’s where this tour comes in: a true off-the-beaten-path adventure and the perfect blend of beauty, art and history in a stunning historical setting.

The sculptures of Auguste Rodin, one of the most talented Frenchmen ever to touch a lump of clay, are celebrated in style inside an 18th century mansion just steps from the golden dome of Les Invalides. Sure we’ll take you to his greatest hit, The Thinker, explaining its history and secrets. But we’ll go way beyond that by embarking on a quest to discover Rodin’s influences, methods, personal life, and of course an array of his most memorable masterpieces.

With a private art expert at your side the whole way, you’ll step into a world unknown to most and come face to face with the power and emotion of a true artistic genius. Hidden details and historic anecdotes will bring the past to life and tap you into the raw humanity of Rodin’s work. And as always we keep this museum tour relaxed and conversational, so you don’t have to worry about dozing off halfway through.

In addition to the interiors of the museum you’ll also explore the splendid gardens that encompass it, finding yourself awash in lush rose bushes and manicured shrubs that will leave you with only two thoughts: no wonder Rodin loved it here, and how did I not know about this place before?! If you’re ready to enjoy a side of Paris that few ever see, this rare and unique museum experience is a must.
