Full description
Admire the beauty of this iconic museum on a 90-minute tour that hits all the high spots and gives you the lowdown on famous paintings, sculptures and artifacts. Your tour begins at the controversial Pyramid, next to the Tuileries Garden, where a pesky little red ghost has lived for hundreds of years.

Once inside, head back in time to the period when the Louvre was a fortress, as you walk through the shadows of the Medieval Foundations. Soon you will come face to face with the Great Sphinx of Tanis whose riddles have puzzled for thousands of years. Throughout your tour you will walk past thousands of paintings, sculptures and artifacts, and hear scandalous tales of murder and cannibalism.

Your tour has been carefully planned to stop at over a dozen of the world’s most well-known works of art, all of which hold secrets and gossip, bringing it all to life in a new way you never imagined. The tour concludes at the most famous lady of them all, Mona Lisa. From here, once you tear yourself away from the bewitching Mona Lisa smile, you are free to stay in the museum as long as you wish and your tour guide will provide handy tips for other marvels to behold on your own.
