The Original experience

  • Say “au revoir” to long lines with skip-the-line entry

  • Revisit collections or explore on your own after the tour ends
Full description
Head in faster and see art from an expert’s perspective. Over 2 hours, skip the crowds and follow a smart route through the Louvre with your guide. 

Get up close to the Venus de Milo, the sculpture that inspired so many artists. Your guide will take you to see The Winged Victory of Samothrace, the famous Hellenistic statue carved in the form of Nike, the Greek goddess of victory.

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.

Finally, move on to take your place in the line for the “Mona Lisa,” where your guide will explain the history behind the painting. Afterward, feel free to wait in line to see the painting up close and take photos or explore the museum on your own for as long as you like.
