Van Gogh visited his brother Theo in 1873, 1874 & 1875 and settled there from Feb 28,1886 to Feb 18, 1888 where he was staying at his brother 54 rue Lepic next to Montmartre.
Best place to visit on the foot of Van Gogh is Montmartre, his flat, moulin de la galette, some restaurant which he was familiar with stayed alike.
Signpost on display by Moulin de la Galette
And of course, the main piece is the Musée d'Orsay with the largest collection of 27 Van Gogh in a French museum.
The place itself (a former train station) is just worth the visit and specialises in Impressionist artist located on the 5th floor.
Most of Van Gogh's works is displayed on the 2nd floor in a common room with Gauguin but some paintings are dispatched in other rooms of the museum.
