Full description
A visit to the Louvre is a must-do when in Paris, as the museum contains many of the most famous artistic masterpieces of civilization. Many visitors feel intimidated by the vastness of the site and the magnitude of the collection; join this tour to skip the lines and get straight to the highlights. Your engaging, informed and passionate guide will make sure your visit to the Louvre turns out to be among the most memorable moments of your trip to Paris.

The Louvre’s awkward layout is due to the fact that it was not intended to function as a museum; the sprawling structure has nearly 10 miles of galleries. Trust your guide to navigate the halls, conveying you efficiently to the most important works, but also pointing out numerous lesser-known beauties that you might have passed without noticing. You might appreciate the French Crown Jewels, Egyptian antiquities many thousands of years old, sculptural wonders by Michelangelo, and large-format canvases such as Liberty Leading the People and the Coronation of Napoleon. Admire the richly furnished and decorated salons preserved from the Second Empire, the last time the Louvre was home to a sovereign.

And of course, you won’t leave without spending some time in the presence of the most famous painting in the world, Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. Thanks to your guide’s explanations and anecdotes about this enigmatic image, you’ll leave with a better sense of why she’s such a wonder to behold. At the conclusion of your guided service, you will have the option of remaining in the museum... until closing time if you wish.
