Covid-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

Discover one of the world’s great art collections on a guided tour of the Louvre Museum, and marvel at relics from Ancient Egypt to the art of the Italian Renaissance. The entire collection would take months to see in full, but you will follow a carefully planned route to discover the highlights. Gaze at da Vinci’s enigmatic Mona Lisa and see some of the less famous gems, such as Anthony Canova’s emotional Psyche Revived by Cupid’s Kiss. Hear the true story depicted in Gericault’s Raft of Medusa, and go to Napoleon’s former apartments to admire the most beautiful décor of the palace, as well as a collection of crown jewels. The masterpieces continue with the Venus de Milo, the sculpture that inspired so many artists. Head to the basement of the Louvre Palace to see the foundations of the castle that once stood on the site. Choose between 2 options: get your ticket and guided tour with one of the skip-the-ticket-line guided tours in several languages. Alternatively, if you already have a ticket or museum pass, choose the guided tour for ticket or museum pass holders.

Our tour guide, Valerie, was great! She focused on what was of interest to us, to make our tour perfect. Her knowledge of the louvre’s history was great, interesting and exciting! We were able to see all the pieces that were of interest to us and along to way to each piece, Valerie may see a piece and she took the opportunity to explain it to us as she walked to the next piece we wanted to see. Great experience!

The start of the tour was easy to find. We really enjoyed the tour through the Louvre. It would have been impossible to explore and navigate to all it’s treasures by ourselves. The guide was knowledgeable and had a lot of good stories for the art displayed! Would highly recommend this tour for everyone.
