An immersion with understanding, feeling...and emotion !


Like a party's dinner, a museum can be too much. . . especially the Louvre with 36 000 works of art.

With all my guiding experience in the Louvre (more than a thousand tour in it) , I guaranty you a delicate and comfortable Tour.

We will see rooms, statues, paintings, unmissable masterpieces and not so famous ones to understand the reasons behind the legends and give you keys to understand.

Please note that content and orders are subjects to change according to you (your wishes !) and the Louvre (Not every rooms are open at the same time according to the day of the week).
If a room is closed, I will always show you another one with surprises.

Important !
Between april and october, the Louvre is crowded (specially on Monday as Versailles and Orsay are closed this day).
This mean to enjoy the Louvre, be prepared, but we always find empty rooms when people are taking the motorway. . .

Itinerary

-The world's largest SPHINX outside Egypt (and a way to see perfection according).

-VENUS OF MILO (Greek masterpiece, another perfection).

-WINGS OF VICTORY (Greek masterpiece that inspired "Nike" brand its name and "Rolls-Royce"symbol).

-a masterpiece by da VINCI that many people are missing (my favorite painting)

-MONA LISA (a perfect portrait according to da Vinci, for both, eyes and mind)

-MEDUSA'S RAFT by Guericault (One of the largest French painting that can be read like an open book )

-SLAVES by Michelangelo (Two of the three Michelangelo's statues outside from Italy and another way to see perfection and sensuality )

If time remains, we will continue with :

-Napoleon's III apartment (I call it the "wahoue room" !)

-Original empress's Jewelery

-An objects that is the turning moment between pre-history and history.

-The largest capital you will see ever

-A 9000's years old statue

-The Louvre's oldest room

-surprises

And we will maybe finally get a new way to see art or with new eyes. . .

A Recent Review of this tour

Alexandre took us on the private half day tour of the Louvre. He is extremely knowledgeable about the history of the museum and the pieces of art we asked to see. He clearly has a passion for art and teaching. The Louvre is so large that is can be a little intimidating, but Alexandre's friendly manner made this a fantastic visit. I'd highly recommend this tour and Alexandre as a guide.
