Full description
Meet your local art-loving guide and enjoy skip-the-ticket-line entrance to the Louvre. Once inside, begin your tour of the Louvre, admiring all of the best masterpieces and some of the more peculiar installations along the way. Your guide will have an encyclopedic knowledge of the Louvre and its artworks, so no need to refer to a guidebook. See Leonardo da Vinci’s famous portrait of Lisa Gherardini, known as the Mona Lisa, one of history’s most iconic works of art. The Mona Lisa’s fame has led to endless debate regarding the facial expression of the subject - is she happy or sad? Learn about the history behind the acclaimed painting's story. See more of Da Vinci's work and works by Botticelli, Veronese, and Raphael as part of the Italian Renaissance collection.  When you finish the tour, don’t hesitate to ask your guide for the best restaurant recommendations in Paris.
