From timeless masterpieces like da Vinci's Mona Lisa to the sumptuous interiors of Napoleon's apartments, the Louvre is brimming with treasures. Skip the line into the world's most-visited museum to spend more time admiring the celebrated works of the Louvre's collection with a small group and an expert guide.

Get the most out of your experience as you delve into the Louvre Museum’s 35,000-piece collection, which spans more than 652,000 square feet (60,000 sq m) in a breathtaking former palace set right on the Seine. Skip the notoriously long lines outside the modern glass pyramid and go directly to the museum’s most famous works, including the Mona Lisa, the mysterious Venus de Milo, the inspiring Winged Victory of Samothrace sculpture, and Canova’s romantic Psyche Revived by Cupid's Kiss.

Your guide shares captivating insights into these famous masterpieces and introduces you to some of the museum's lesser-known gems that you might otherwise miss. Explore masterpieces from Ancient Greece and Renaissance Italy, see Etruscan artifacts and 19th-century French paintings, and witness the work of world-famous artists like da Vinci, Caravaggio, Raphael, and Rubens. Your guide also takes you beyond the art and into the museum's past as a royal palace, leading you to the ornately decorated rooms where Napoleon once lived and the Apollo Room, where the shimmering Crown Jewels are on display.
