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.

Know Before You Book

  • Children aged 3 and younger are complimentary.

  • This activity is not wheelchair accessible.

  • This activity is unable to accommodate pushchairs or baby carriers.

  • Please note that the Apollo Gallery is closed until the end of December 2019, this means that the Crown Jewel collection won't be visible until then. Your guide will make sure to include other highlights to the itinerary.

  • Due to renovation work carried on inside the Louvre until mid-October 2019, we might not be able to cover some artworks such as the Mona Lisa. Although this is not under our control, your guide will do his best to provide a qualitative service in line with the advertised tour length.

  • Check-in is 15 minutes prior to the booked tour start time.

I was disappointed with the tour, because it cost me $91.00 Canadian, and I feel I could have learned as much by following the map and reading the signs on my own. The guide, Damian, appeared to have a great deal of knowledge about the exhibits, the artists, and the Louvre in general. The problem was that his guiding/speaking skills were not very good. It was impossible to hear the majority of what he said because he wasn't speaking into his microphone most of the time. An experienced and qualified guide/speaker should have been aware of that. I wouldn't recommend this tour to anyone and I feel it was a total waste of my money.

Have been to the Louvre twice before this tour. Just loved hearing about the history of its evolution from a palace to the worlds largest art museum. Our guide John was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable.. an excellent teacher. Highly recommend this tour.
