"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: To avoid any disappointments, ALWAYS check with me BEFORE booking as I might already have a last minute reservation.

Thank you!

A Recent Review of this tour

Isabelle was energetic, knowledgeable, fun and flexible with our desires. She is passionate about her work. I wish we would've had Isabelle with us on our tour in the Loire Valley. We would highly recommend her to anyone visiting Paris and would book with her again. Thanks for a great afternoon at The Louvre, Isabelle!
