Auvers-sur-Oise and the Musée de l’Absinthe

# DescriptionREF. EXC_AUVER2
Trip
Duration3h00
Classic

We'll head towards Auvers-sur-Oise. Stretching almost four miles (seven kilometers) of the Oise River bank, Auvers-sur-Oise was Vincent Van Gogh's last home and final resting place. We'll stroll through the picturesque village streets and along the Artists' Pathway, where works by famous Impressionists compare the current landscapes and architecture. Our next stop will be the Musée de l’Absinthe and its reproduction of the ambiance found in cafés during the Belle Époque, when the "green fairy" was the preferred drink of poets and artists. The museum collection gives us great insight into 19th-century culture in France. We'll finish up our tour with a demonstration of the absinthe ritual and a tasting, of course.
