Let's discover together the secrets of the Louvre


800 years of history are hidden in this museum that was once a palace. During this visit will we learn about the intrigues of the different Kings, Queens and Emperors who lived here. If walls could talk they might tell us about a love triangle, a murder, a robbery or give us an insight into the mystery behind some of the artworks found here. Together we will travel through history and learn about the Greek myths, the enigmas of the Renaissance and especially we'll talk about the intrigue that still surrounds the Mona Lisa.
This tour full of myths and mystery will not only help you to appreciate the museum and it's art, but also the Louvre palace itself.

*Please note that the Louvre is closed on Tuesdays and that due to restoration works some rooms and artworks may not always be open or visible.

Itinerary

Suggested Itinerary:

- The hidden fortress
- Great Sphinx of Tanis
- The Greeks - Athena, Ares, and Venus or is it Aphrodite?
- The Renaissance palace ballroom and the intriguing sculptures inside it.
- Italian Paintings - The best of the Renaissance and the mystery of Mona Lisa
- French Paintings - The Romantics
- Italian Sculptures - Michelangelo's slaves and Canova's masterpiece

*NB Due to renovations some areas can be closed and so we are not always able to visit all of the above.

Meeting Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Suggested by Guide: We will meet next to the statue of Louis XIV which is to the right of the pyramid when you are facing the front of it.

End Point Options: Suggested by Guide: In the Louvre entrance hall under the Louvre Pyramid

Duration: 2 hours 30 min.

I feel this is the ideal time to see the highlights of the Louvre but if you need a little bit more time or a little less we can always add on or take away a half hour in either direction.
