Skip-the-line Guided Tour of the Louvre Museum

5/5 (22 reviews)
  • Description

Your priority access ticket will allow you to follow your guide straight into the world's largest museum. No need to stand in line! This guided tour offers the perfect opportunity to learn about the museum's huge collection and its greatest works of art, such as the Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo, and the Coronation of Napoleon.

Before it became a museum in 1793, the Louvre had long been one of the principle palaces of the Kings of France. Located right in the heart of Paris, the Louvre's galleries stretch for 786,000 square feet. It is home to the world's largest collection of art works, spanning more than 7,000 years from ancient civilizations to the 19th Century. The museum's collections are split into eight different departments: Egyptian antiquities, Greek, Etruscan & Roman antiquities, Near Eastern antiquities, Islamic art, Paintings, Sculptures, Decorative Arts, and Prints & Drawings.

Spend time discovering these collections with your guide, who will show you some of the museum's most famous works and tell you about the stories that lie behind them. Marvel at the Mona Lisa, painted by Leonardo da Vinci in 1506, one of the most famous female portraits in the world; the Venus de Milo, a celebrated Greek sculpture dating from 100 BC depicting the goddess Aphrodite; or the giant 33-foot-long painting of the Coronation of Napoleon, painted in 1807 by Jacques-Louis David to commemorate the crowning of Napoleon Bonaparte in Notre Dame Cathedral.

After your guided tour, spend time exploring other parts of the museum at your own pace.

Corine was excellent and very knowledgeable, she helped us navigate the immense sea of people and focused on the essentials. Highly recommend doing skip the line, size of group wasn't too large so had a lot of one on one contact with the guide for asking questions etc. would do it again!

A wonder filled touring experience with knowledgeable guides❤️
5/5
The website is simple and easy to order the trip. I would advice that the guide waits atleast 10mins for everyone to arrive. My friend and I were stuck in traffic and arrived late. We were very lucky she came back (Joanna was our guide - she was superb!!). The people in the office told us it was too late, but Joanna came back :) :)The tour was fantastic - we didn't have to queue anywhere, we saw all the best bits and Joanna answered all of our questions and told us everything we needed to know. She not only had a thorough knowledge of the Louvre and all it's masterpieces but also the history or Paris and History of Art in general.Would highly recommend to go on the Friday evening tour when there are a lot less people!
5/5
The tour is good if you want to see the main attractions of the Louvre and then afterwards you can explore by yourself and take your time. Our guide Amoury was great. Would recommend.
4/5
Our guide was excellent. The crowds and poor organization by the Louvre staff and museum was disappointing. Agnes did the best she could.
