Skip-the-line and enjoy the mains artworks
We will see the MAIN Louvre's artworks : 5 sculptures, 6 paintings, some amazing rooms. . . and some details on the way.
Step by step, I will narrate a story including each one of them up to the main character : MONA LISA
I finish with this legendary painting because starting with it can be disappointing and make us sometimes blind : So much noise around it and so much. . . fictions !
After so many tours, I believe that you will love my story and will understand (and remember) the facts or serious theories behind the legends.
-Content is subject 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 close, I will always show you another one with surprises.
The Louvre can be crowded sometimes, be prepared to that even if I ll make the tour as comfortable as I can.
Here are the main artworks we'll see (i will add some more artworks and architecture description on the way) :
-The great SPHINX (Egypt)
-The world famous Venus of MILO (Greece)
-The world famous Samothracy WINGS OF VICTORY (Greece)
-3 paintings by Cimabue, Giotto, BOTTICELLI and 2 by Leonardo DA VINCI 's painting that the Louvre own. . .
-And finally. . . Tadam !. . . the most famous painting in the world : MONA LISA
You will really appreciate it and understand why it is a legend !
In total you will have a clear and easy overview of the Louvre and will remember for ever your meeting with the masterpieces, I guarantee that.
This list can be modified according to your wishes, the time we have or in case of a closed room the day of the tour.

A Recent Review of this tour

Educational and entertaining! It was my sister-in-law's first trip to the Louvre, the rest of us have been there several times. Alexandre's knowledge and manner made it come alive in his description of the works we viewed. This was not a rushed "see all you can as fast as you can" type tour. He was more than happy to accommodate specific preferences or spend more time discussing a particular piece. If you dread tours but still want to know more, spend a morning with Alexandre at the Louvre!
