Full description
Head in faster and see art from an expert’s perspective.

Over two hours, skip the crowds and follow a smart route through the Louvre with your guide. Get up close to the “Mona Lisa,” with time to stop and take photos. Move on to the “Venus de Milo,” the sculpture that inspired so many artists. Then, visit the famous apartments of Napoleon III and admire the beautiful interiors of the palace.

Your guide will take you to see all the big stuff, as well as underrated gems visitors often miss. In the basement of the Louvre Palace, see the foundations of the castle that once stood on the site and learn the history behind it all. Afterward, feel free to explore the museum on your own for as long as you like.
