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 other surprises.
Between april and october, the Louvre is crowded (specially on Monday as Versailles and Orsay are closed this day).
Between july 14th and mid august, it is very crowded.
This mean to enjoy the Louvre, be prepared, but we might find empty rooms when people are taking the motorway. . .
-The world's largest SPHINX outside Egypt (and their way to see perfection).
-VENUS OF MILO (Greek masterpiece, a different perfection).
-WINGS OF VICTORY (Greek masterpiece that inspired "Nike" brand's name and "Rolls-Royce" 's 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 readen 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 )
And then, according to remaining time, 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
And we will maybe finally see art with new eyes.

Alexandre is a great guide and very accommodating. We have only used Toursbylocal twice. Once in New York City. We had Bill G. He too is a great guide. So no doubt we will continue to go with Toursbylocals
