Skip-the-line Guided Tour of the Louvre Museum

5/5 (96 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 tour, why not take advantage of your ticket and stay longer in the museum to eat or enjoy shopping for souvenirs such as posters, books, etc.

    Seeing just the highlights with an informative guide worked out really well. Having been to the Louvre many times it was nice to see the excavations of the original building site after the art portion of this tour.
    I will definitely book all my tours through this company. Very helpful, polite, and knowledgeable with all the exhibits.
    Excellent guide; did a very good job of summarizing western art history period with tell-tale indications to guide (i.e. presence or not of facial expressions on the Greek statues); the guide had some humorous stories which helped us to retain details about the works of art; good pacing of the information she shared with us; she also kept a discrete eye on the group so that did not lose any of us, despite the siren call of the magnificent works in the Louvre! Thank you, Roseanna!
    Claire was a knowledgeable, entertaining and excellent guide.
