Skip the line and visit the Louvre with an art historian

Visiting the Louvre Museum is an incredible experience but without a guide it can be a bit frustrating. What to see and where to go in the biggest museum of the world, housing amazing masterpieces from different epochs and countries?

Join me in this fascinating tour to make the most of your visit and explore the museum with an art historian. We will admire all the most famous works of art, including the Venus de Milo, the Victory of Samothrace, the Mona Lisa, the paintings by David and Delacroix, Michelangelo's sculptures and many others. . . you will discover the history of the Louvre and the evolution of the European western art from the very beginning to the 19th Century.
At the end of the tour you will have the opportunity to stay in the Museum as long as you want to visit the other galleries at your own pace.


We will visit different departments:

- medieval Louvre
- Greek, Etruscan and Roman antiquities
- Apollo gallery
- Italian Paintings
- French paintings

On request, I can change the program (Oriental Antiquities, Egyptian collection. . . ) or find for you the masterpieces you are interested in but are displayed in other areas of the museum.

Meeting location: Outside the great pyramid of the Louvre, near the equestrian Statue of Louis XIV. I will have a green cardboard. If you want I can pick you up anywhere in Paris (Hotel/apartment/restaurant...)

A Recent Review of this tour

Sara, an art historian, gave a wonderful, detailed, tour of the Louvre. There is no way we could have covered the masterpieces by ourselves. We were 3 adults and 3 teenagers. Sara led us past the lines and gave us up close and inside details of the paintings and sculptures. A great way to spend a morning! I highly recommend Sara.
