Skip-the-line and enjoy the mains artworks
If we start the tour by Mona Lisa, we can be disappointed, and maybe a bit blind.
So much noise around it and so much. . . fictions.
I will show you the MAIN Louvre's artworks : 5 sculptures, 6 paintings, some amazing rooms. . . and little details on the way.
Then I will narrate a story including them all along the way to the main character : MONA LISA
After so many tours, I have good reasons to think that you will love my story
This way, you will understand step by steps, the story behind the legend.
Please note that 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.
Between April and October, the Louvre is crowded (specially on Monday as Versailles and Orsay are closed this day).
To enjoy fully the Louvre, be prepared to that.
But we always find desert roads when most of the people are taking the motorway. . .
This list can be modified according to your wishes or in case of a closed room the day of the tour (rare).
-the Sphinx (Egypt)
-Venus of Milo (Greece)
-Wings of Victory (Greece)
-three paintings by Cimabue, Giotto and Boticelli (Two very different Madonna's and a the portrait of a Saint)
-And finally Mona Lisa
and then, you will understand the facts behind the legend.
-If we have the possibility (time and location) I will be open to your wishes and show you what you want after leaving Mona Lisa.

It was a rainy day and even though we were both late, Alexandre made up by spending almost an hour extra with us, patiently answering all the questions our kids posed to him. He was very knowledgeable and kept ours as well as our children's interest during our express highlights of the Louvre tour. Would highly recommend him!
