This comprehensive tour is an introduction to the diversity and richness of the Louvre. Together, you and your art historian guide will explore the key highlights of the Louvre’s Ancient Near East, Greek and Roman, and Renaissance Italian collections.  You’ll also learn about the fascinating architectural history of the Louvre’s pre-museum life as a royal palace. This is an ideal way to make what can normally be an overwhelming experience into a meaningful one.  You’ll see the most celebrated of all the Louvre’s treasures—the Khorsabad Palace, the Venus de Milo, Nike of Samothrace, Leonardo’s Mona Lisa, Michelangelo’s Slaves—but your guide will also take the time to see other carefully selected works, vividly conveying their details and historical context.  This is one our most popular tours, reserved by both first-time visitors and those looking to revisit the Louvre in a more memorable way.

Your guide will bring your timed and dated tickets, and together you’ll use a priority access line to enter the museum. There will be a wait for the required security screening, however. 

Our cancellation and change policies are here.
