Description

See the best of the Louvre in just two hours with skip the line tickets so you won’t waste time waiting in line. Led by an expert local tour guide, you’ll explore key pieces of the Louvre Museum, focusing on the stories behind the artists and their works rather than the technical details. This creates for a more enjoyable experience of this sometimes intimidating gallery. This tour does not include transportation to or from the Museum.

Meet your guide at the Arc du Carousel at 11:15 am to begin your tour. The Louvre is a must-see in Paris, not just for its incredible art but for the history held within its walls. This was once a palace where princes rode their horses up and down the hallways; a sprawling complex fortified to protect the first family of France. Go beyond the obvious on a jam-packed Louvre highlights tour, peering behind the artworks to unlock their secrets.

You’ll see famous French works like Géricault’s Raft of Medusa, which depicts the true story of shipwrecked sailors driven to cannibalism. Of course, Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa will play a major role in your tour. You won’t believe how tiny the Louvre’s most famous artwork is, nor how many guests have tried to destroy her. At the sculpture gallery you’ll encounter another Italian in Michelangelo’s Slaves, plus Anthony Canova’s incredibly romantic Psyche Revived by Cupid’s Kiss.

You’ll also get a sense for that other use of the Louvre, as a royal palace. With your guide on hand to point out the details, notice the beautiful ceiling panels and explore a special room filled with crown jewels.

As you explore, wear headsets to help you hear your guide and to ensure that you don’t get lost. Traveling in a small group of just 20 people or fewer means you’ll also find your guide easier to interact with and question. You will tour with the best, most qualified licensed guides to answer any and all questions you may have along the way.

Skip the long lines and join this short (but sweet) adventure into the heart of French art and history. The tour ends at approximately 1 pm.
