In the footsteps of Van Gogh: private guided day tours and day trips from Paris to Auvers sur Oise
Auvers sur Oise is a must-visit destination for art lovers. Beloved of artists Daubigny, Cezanne and Pissarro, it was also chosen by Vincent Van Gogh when he decided to leave Arles (Provence) and return to Paris to be closer to his brother Theo.
Located just 15 miles from the French capital, Auvers sur Oise is ideal for day trips from Paris.
Take one of our private guided day tours and you'll be able to stroll through the charming village to the Auberge Ravoux, the inn where Van Gogh lived when he first arrived at Auvers. Now both a restaurant and a small museum, Auberge Ravoux was also where the artist died, two days after shooting himself in a wheat field just outside the village. His work "Wheat field with crows," now in Amsterdam's Van Gogh Museum, is considered his final painting.

To learn more about Van Gogh, see our tours to the Orsay Museum and to Provence (Arles and Saint Remy de Provence.)
Our private guided day tours and day trips from Paris also enable you to visit the Auvers cemetery, where Vincent Van Gogh is buried alongside his beloved brother Theo, who died just 5 months after him.
