Description

The name says it all!  Delve deeper into lesser-known but equally important masterpieces all whilst skipping the most crowded part of the museum.  You will see hand-picked pieces throughout the museum’s vast collections from Mesopotamia, Ancient Greece and Rome, the Renaissance, and French neoclassicism. After all, the Mona Lisa is only one of 7,500 paintings on display. This tour is more customisable than the others so please contact us if there is a specific collection you would like to visit.

Skip the line and begin a chronological journey through the evolution of art over 9000 years.  You will begin by analysing some of the oldest art in the Louvre from ancient Babylon. Learn about how writing developed before seeing the Hammurabi code.  From here you will be guided to the oldest piece of artwork in the Louvre, which very few visitors manage to reach on their own.  You will then continue your art history workshop with Greek Hellenistic masterpieces such as the Venus de Milo before moving into Roman and Etruscan sculptures. The goal of the antiquities portion of the tour is to show you why and how art evolved and where you can still see its influence in the modern world.  You will move on the see the development of painting, from byzantine to Italian renaissance and then French romantic and neoclassical paintings before finishing full-circle surrounded by Italian sculptures 9000 years younger than the oldest piece of artwork you saw at the beginning of your adventure!
