Paris Residential - Day 4

This morning we had the chance to go to a traditional French market. Our task was to buy our lunch for the day, but we only had 5 euros each. We decided to put our money together in our groups and bought: bread, meat and fruit. 

Then we went to the Pompidou - a modern art centre that has all of its pipes and stairs on the outside! It was very unusual.

After eating our lunch we had bought earlier, we got back onto the coach and went to the Musee D'Orsay. The museum holds mainly French art dating from 1848 to 1914, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, and photography. It houses the largest collection of impressionist and post-Impressionist masterpieces in the world, by painters including Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, Seurat, Sisley, Gauguin, and Van Gogh. We particularly enjoyed looking at the impressionist exhibition where we sketched and analysed our favourite paintings.

Lastly, we enjoyed a boat cruise along the river Seine. We saw many Parisian landmarks including: Notre-Dame, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum and Musée d'Orsay.
