"Skip the line" Private tour of Paris' most famous museum


If you do only one museum in Paris, this is it. This comprehensive "skip the line" tour is an ideal introduction to the diversity and richness of the Louvre. The tour also incorporates the fascinating architectural history of the Louvre's pre-museum life as a royal palace.

During this adventure in Art from Antiquity up to 1848, we will see the most celebrated of all the Louvre's treasures: the Venus de Milo, the Winged Victory of Samothrace, Leonardo's Mona Lisa, Michelangelo's Slaves, the Coronation of Napoleon, with some stories behind the art and the artists, if you wish.

PLEASE NOTE: Since May 29th 2019 (and until. . . ?), only visitors with a ticket can enter the museum.

# Entrances fees with a time slot (17 euros per person)
The visitors have to buy their own tickets directly online at www. ticketlouvre. fr (the official website).

#Museum Pass.
(minimum 2 day Pass: 48 Euros)
This Pass is worth it if you visit at least 4 museums during these two consecutive days.

Thank you!

A Recent Review of this tour

Isabelle was a wonderful guide. She has so much knowledge about the Louvre and art work. My 19 yr old and 12 yr old wanted more time with her and after the tour said we should do every museum with her as our guide. She is informative, funny and engaging. Loved her!!!
