Moret-sur-Loing to Bourron-Marlotte €265

We'll be on the trail of the Impressionist painters on this tour. We start our tour in the pretty little countryside town of Moret-sur-Loing, which was home to Alfred Sisley from 1880 to 1897 (he was a major figure in the Impressionist art movement and some of his works are displayed in the Louvre and Musée d'Orsay). After we cycle around Moret a bit we'll ride along a nearby canal and then detour through the countryside before rejoining towns along the Loing river to finish up our tour. This area attracted artists from all over the globe from the late 19th through the early 20th century, but unless you are an art historian then you've likely never heard of any of the artists who were drawn to this area. But don't worry, you don't need to be an art historian to enjoy this tour. In fact, you can be an art hater and just enjoy the beautiful countryside scenery and quaint villages we'll bike through. Satisfaction guaranteed and no art diploma required.
