What to expect

This 2 to 2.5 hour walking tour of the Louvre museum allows you to skip the line and scores you a ticket that is valid for the whole day. The tour that includes a visit to some of the most iconic pieces while also exploring the history behind the building that, today, is larger than the palace at Versailles. You also have the option to book an evening tour on Wednesday or Friday to avoid the crowds.

With 35,000 pieces of art to discover on top of a rich architectural history, we understand if you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed by the Louvre. From its roots as a fortress to its days as a royal residence, the Louvre has more secrets than any building in Paris could ever hold. This intimate group tour seeks to captivate first timers as well as those who think they know it all as you visit statues like the armless Venus de Milo and the headless Winged Victory of Samothrace. Drool over the crowned jewels in the opulent Apollo Gallery and descend into the depths of the medieval moat beneath the museum. We’ll even discuss a few master painters like Michelangelo and Delacroix.

From the smiling Mona Lisa to the 19th century masters, our passionate guides will show you what you need to see at the Louvre, as well as a few surprises not in the guidebooks.

Highlights generally include (if artwork is not on loan or being restored etc.):

  • Mona Lisa
  • Venus de Milo
  • Winged Victory of Samothrace
  • Liberty Leading the People
  • Michelangelo’s Slaves
  • Louis XIV’s Apollo Gallery
  • Underground Medieval Moat
