Description

Spend a relaxing and culture filled morning in New Orleans! Visit the house of the French impressionist painter Edgar Degas and enjoy a lovely Creole breakfast.

Breakfast will be served on your arrival in the house and will consist of waffles with fresh bananas, Creole omelettes or French toast with caramelised bananas. Top it off with a Bloody Mary or a Mimosa.

The tour of the magnificent house will then start. The painter lived here from 1872-73 with his maternal family. This is the only house of Edgar Degas in the world which is open to the public!

The great-great niece of the painter will take you on the tour, where you can explore both main houses as well as the heart of the Creole district where the painter used to take walks. The tour will end in his workshop where you can admire the paintings created during his stay in New Orleans.
