On the pathways of the impressionists – with an art expert
Have an unforgettable walk across Auvers-sur-Oise, the village not far from Paris, where Van Gogh spent his last 70 days of life. This charming little village with a river, a railway, a road and a hill, impressed and inspired the post- impressionist Dutch artist and make him paint it all.
