Description

Visit the Louvre Museum’s must-see attractions and discover under-appreciated treasures in this comprehensive tour. Skip-the-Line access gives you more time to absorb all that the massive museum has to offer.

Your expert guide will share their passion for the collection, unveiling subtle details most visitors never learn about the works of art on show.

The ‘Mona Lisa’; the ‘Venus de Milo’; the ‘Winged Victory of Samothrace’. While they’re familiar the world over, no one can truly know these works without spending time in their presence. Your guide will explain their history, but only you can decide how these masterpieces make you feel.

Often overshadowed by the famous highlights, but no less significant as works of art, the tour features antiquities like the 4,000-year-old ‘Great Sphinx of Tanis’, other recognisable works by Da Vinci and Raphael, and highlights of the French Romantic period. Learn what people get wrong about Delacroix’s ‘Liberty Leading the People’ and decode the message of hope in Géricault's ‘Raft of the Medusa’. Sculptures by Michelangelo and Canova add another dimension to the experience.

In the Apollo Gallery, you’ll glimpse the Louvre’s own history as the Royal Palace preceding Versailles. The equally opulent décor of the Second Empire is also preserved in the Napoleon Apartments.

After the tour, you can continue exploring the Louvre. Revisit earlier stops armed with new knowledge or embark on your own journey of discovery.

Skip the line feature is excellent. The guide will give you a much more indepth understanding of what you are seeing than if you were doing it on your own.

Wow this was the best museum I have ever been too. Even with the crowd it was amazing! I would recommend a tour guide!

Fabrizia was amazing or shall I say Fab was fab! She was extremely knowledgeable and had such a passion for art that she made the tour well worth every penny we spent. Would highly recommend to anyone even if you are not that interested in art!
