Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

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

Visit the Louvre Museum’s must-see attractions and discover under-appreciated treasures on this comprehensive tour. Skipping the Louvre’s famously long lines gives you time to absorb all the massive museum has to offer.

Your expert guide will share their passion for the collection as you move through the Louvre, unveiling subtle details most visitors never learn about the works of art on show.

The ‘Mona Lisa’; the ‘Venus de Milo’; the ‘Winged Victory of Samothrace’. While they’re familiar the world over, no one can truly know these works without spending time in their presence. Your guide will explain their history, but only you can decide how these masterpieces make you feel.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

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

Often overshadowed by the famous highlights, but no less significant as works of art, the tour features Greek and Roman antiquities like the 4,000-year-old ‘Great Sphinx of Tanis’, other recognisable works by Da Vinci and Raphael, and highlights of the French Romantic period. Learn what people get wrong about Delacroix’s ‘Liberty Leading the People’ and decode the message of hope in Géricault's ‘Raft of the Medusa’. Sculptures like Michelangelo’s ‘Dying Slave’ and Antonio Canova’s ‘Psyche Revived by Cupid’s Kiss’ add another dimension to the experience.

In the Apollo Gallery, you’ll glimpse the Louvre’s own history as the Royal Palace, before Louis XIV relocated the court to Versailles. The equally opulent décor of the Second Empire is also preserved in the Napoleon Apartments.

After the tour, you can continue exploring the Louvre at your leisure. Revisit earlier stops armed with new knowledge or embark on your own journey of discovery.
