Overview

Visit the Musée du Louvre to see its most famous artwork, Leonardo da Vinci's 'Mona Lisa,' without the typical crowds. Enter the museum as it's getting ready to close, taking advantage of this time of day to admire the painting among fewer people. Plus, see the museum's other masterpieces with an art historian guide. Tour is limited to 13 people with the option for an intimate tour with max six people on select days.

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Louvre Museum, 99 Rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris France

As one of the world’s most famous paintings, the Mona Lisa rarely gets much peace. During regular visiting hours she is almost constantly mobbed by hundreds of people, severely compromising any time you get to spend with her. In order to avoid the crowds, we’ll take you to see her after most visitors have left and give you plenty of space to enjoy her beauty.

Tested and perfected through countless research trips, your itinerary inverts the normal Louvre route allowing you to see much more than other visitors who are on the normal tours that try to fit the rest of the museum into 1.5 hours.

During the tour, your guide will show you the Louvre’s most treasured sights, including the historic foundations of the Kings’ palace moat, Greek and Roman sculptures like the ‘Venus de Milo’, ‘Cupid & Psyche’, and Michelangelo’s ‘Slaves’; and many of the greatest works ever created by French artists such as ‘Liberty Leading the People’ by Delacroix and ‘The Raft of Medusa’ by Géricault. You’ll also see France’s old crown jewels, the world famous ‘Winged Victory’ monument, and works from Italian painters like Caravaggio, Raphael, and da Vinci.

There are many ways to see the Louvre, but only one way shows you all the best works and gets you in front of the Mona Lisa after most of the crowds have left. Your guide takes care of all the time and logistics so all you have to do is enjoy the art.

This was the highlight of our trip and we are already looking into how to book more Louvre tours with Adam. Adam was engaging, expertly knowledgeable, and really brought the art to life. We learned so much and got so much more out of our day at the Louve with Adam than we ever would have on our own. Don't hesitate to book this. It truly was the best part of our holiday.

We really enjoyed this tour with Adam(our tour guide). He was so knowledgeable, yet funny and made the tour very engaging. We entered the museum so fast, and the whole experience was planned out very efficiently around the exhibits schedule to allow us to see and experience the most. Highly recommend to do this tour to anyone. Another great experience with Walks!

I learned a lot and had fun doing it. I definitely saw things that I wouldn’t have seen by myself. Opened our eyes to the culture and times that the art is from.

To be honest, what made this tour special was our guide Violette. She's super knowledgeable and made the full tour feel super fun, not boring at all. The tour lasted 3 hours, yet it felt surprisingly short, a testament to how interesting and absorbing the experience was. Violette skillfully navigated us through the sprawling corridors and galleries of the Louvre, ensuring we saw the most iconic pieces, including the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo, as well as lesser-known gems that we might have overlooked on our own. Her expertise was not just limited to the artwork; she shared insights into the history of the Louvre itself, which added depth to our understanding and appreciation of the museum. Violette answered questions with ease and encouraged curiosity, making everyone feel included, regardless of their prior knowledge of art. Moreover, the pacing of the tour was perfect. Despite the vast amount of ground covered, it never felt rushed. In conclusion, this Louvre tour exceeded my expectations, largely due to our outstanding guide, Violette.
