Nice tour with recorded audio guide. I liked the concept. If you go on the top deck of the bus when the weather is cold, the seats on the front near the windows should be less cold (they were taken when we did the tour). I would plan this in the beginning of your visit, as it gives you a nice overview and an idea of what you would like to see later.

L'expérience en bus était super on passe dans tous les endroits touristiques de la capitale c'est vraiment sympa ! La visite guidée sur smartphone complète bien l'experience, les commentaires des guides sont intéressants et l'application est très simple d'utilisation. Je recommande fortement

Really beautiful, manageable in size, relatively easy to navigate. Some excellent works of art, truly something for everyone, even my sceptic husband was drawn in by several paintings and sculptures. To top it, the café was very nice too.

I recommend to go early, we had luck, the beginning of our visit it was not so overcrowded and we could enjoy the beautiful Impressionist section very much!

Wonderful collection! Alas parts of it are still closed, esp the art nouveau furniture.
