The best of the Louvre, the very best value
A fast paced walking tour designed to discover the maximum of this extraordinary palace-museum. Equipped with headsets to hear me above the crowds, follow me through the halls and galleries built over 800 years. Hear the stories of the monarchs, emperors and artists that lived and worked here, discover the exceptional collection and see world famous treasures. At the end of the walk I will leave you with my own DIY guides to explore other, quieter, parts of the museum at your own pace.
Tickets are not included, please buy timed, named tickets for each traveller over 18 online from the official Louvre site. (free for under 18/under 26 EEA residents, photo id necessary)
Meet me under the Pyramid (your online tickets will allow you to skip the line) and off we go through the remains of the medieval fortress, the Sphinx of Tanis, Greek/Roman sculpture/17th century architecture, Victory of Samothrace, the Salon Carré with its magnificent ceiling, the Long Gallery of Italian Renaissance art, Mona Lisa, French Romantics with Liberty Leading the People, Michaelangelo's slaves, Italian sculpture and back to the Pyramid.
