Covid-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

Discover one of the world’s great art collections on a guided tour of the Louvre Museum, and marvel at relics from Ancient Egypt to the art of the Italian Renaissance. The entire collection would take months to see in full, but you will follow a carefully planned route to discover the highlights. Gaze at da Vinci’s enigmatic Mona Lisa and see some of the less famous gems, such as Anthony Canova’s emotional Psyche Revived by Cupid’s Kiss. Hear the true story depicted in Gericault’s Raft of Medusa, and go to Napoleon’s former apartments to admire the most beautiful décor of the palace, as well as a collection of crown jewels. The masterpieces continue with the Venus de Milo, the sculpture that inspired so many artists. Head to the basement of the Louvre Palace to see the foundations of the castle that once stood on the site. Choose between 2 options: get your ticket and guided tour with one of the skip-the-ticket-line guided tours in several languages. Alternatively, if you already have a ticket or museum pass, choose the guided tour for ticket or museum pass holders.

Very good and informative tour. Without this we would have admired the works of art, but we would not have received a lot of interesting background information. Didn't expect art history to “grab” us like that. The tour guide Merve was well prepared and was able to answer any of our questions.

We had an excellent tour of the Lourve highlights with our tour guide, Merve. Due to travel restrictions, we were the only ones on the tour and were lucky enough to spend very little time lining up to enter the museum or to view the Mona Lisa. Merve was an excellent guide, she was very knowledgeable not only about the history of the museum but also on the exhibits. She gave us quite alot of interesting information and also pointed out other interesting artefacts, paintings and sculptures that she thought we might enjoy.
