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 Anthony Canova’s emotional Psyche Revived by Cupid’s Kiss. Hear the true story depicted in Gericault’s Raft of Medusa. 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.

Our guide spoke perfect English! The Louvre is so big, but he took us to all of the things we wanted to see! I want to say his name is Erhon…and he really knew everything! He was also very nice and friendly! We were so grateful for his expertise! Otherwise, we’d still be there and lost.

With Miriam we had an excellent guide who spoke perfect German and could answer any of our questions. She informed us about the origins of the Louvre, the various uses of the building and the most important rulers. Of course, we also got to see the most important exhibits, always with the corresponding explanations and instructions. The time passed very quickly. After the tour, there was still time to spend in the Louvre. On our next visit we will book a tour again and then find out more about a specific topic. It was nice to do the tour in a small group and we were lucky that the Louvre wasn't that busy either.

My daughter and I were very satisfied with the friendly and friendly museum guide Miriam. The selection and sequence of the exhibits was well chosen, varied and rich, not overloaded. We found that Miriam has a nice way of passing on the well-founded knowledge, it was very interesting to follow her explanations. The two hours seemed much shorter to us. Gladly again, A. and S.
