The Basics

Highlights of the antiquity section include theSeated Scribe, theJewels of Rameses II, and the armlessWinged Victory of Samothrace andVenus de Milo. From the Renaissance, don't miss Michelangelo'sSlaves sculpture or the famous works by Raphael, Botticelli, and Titian. French masterpieces from the 19th century include Ingres'La Grande Odalisque, Gericault'sThe Raft of the Medusa, and the work of David and Delacroix.

The large crowds attracted by the Louvre are evidence of the museum's global fame—book a skip-the-line ticket to avoid long lines and save precious sightseeing time. And whether you're a lifelong art fan or a creative novice, exploring the museum with a tour guide is an excellent way to ensure you see all of its highlights and hidden gems. Take a tailored private tour if your interests lie in a particular area, or opt for the skip-the-line and audio guide package if you prefer browsing independently. If you're short on time, choose a sightseeing tour that combines a visit to the Louvre with stops at the Eiffel Tower, Montmartre, and Notre Dame Cathedral, or take in city sights from the water on a Seine River cruise.

Super tour!! A wonderful first trip to the Louvre with Belen, who is an amazing guide. She was highly knowledgeable, enthusiastic and made sure we would leave wanting to see and learn more…the perfect balance of history, art and architecture information! And the perfect tour!! I am not a tourist, have been living in Paris for nearly 4 years and wholeheartedly recommend this tour. Thank you Belen!!

Louvre Skip-The-Line Ticket with Host
Remy was a great guide. It would have been nice had I known that The Great Sphinx exhibit was closed on Fridays because I would have chosen a different day to visit the Louvre. This is the 2nd time I've been to the Louvre in 20 years. The Mona Lisa portrait is now encased in glass...beautiful and I did like the history on the picture of her in a different setting.

Louvre Museum Greatest Masterpieces Small Group and Skip-the-Line Tour
I really enjoyed this tour. I got lucky and was the only one booked for the tour. The guide was very good and he was great at explaining the art as well as answering all my questions. He also gave me some great recommendations on areas of the Louvre to explore after the tour that were amazing and not as crowded. Thank you !

Louvre Museum Skip-the-line Access Private Guided Tour
Lili was on time, attentive to the groups needs (including getting and keeping the attention of a 7 year old in the group) and very knowledgeable. She adjusted the tour to our group’s needs and interests and I would gladly recommend her to anyone taking the Louvre tour.

Elizabeth was fabulous! The only way to see the Louvre is through her voice and passion. She transformed history into engaging reality. She was brilliant in her knowledge of art and history. We thoroughly enjoyed our first experience! Thank you.

Christmas in Paris: The Louvre, Champs Elysees & Arc de Triomphe

Paris at Christmas with The Louvre, Champs Elysees & Arc de Triomphe
Patricia, our guide, made the Louvre come alive! The depth of her knowledge is phenomenal. She could answer ANY question we had. Our three hours in the Louvre went SO fast and I left with a wealth of information. To bad that I didn't have Patricia as my prof in my college Intro to Art class. Highly recommend this trip.
