The Louvre Museum: prices
The cost of your tour depends on the one you choose and the services that come with it.
You can book a ticket for a self-guided tour that comes with an audio guide available in the following languages: French, English, Italian, Spanish, German, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese or Russian. The entrance fee enables you to take your time to wander around the museum’s vast halls with a map in hand. Follow various thematic itineraries, or if you’re in a hurry, head straight to the most famous works of art like Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa or the Venus de Milo. The price of this type of visit is the most accessible.
Another option is a priority access guided tour that lasts 2.5 hours or a visit with an experienced guide-interpreter that will take you to the most important works of art like Jacques-Louis David’s Sacre de Napoléon the Ist or provide you with an in-depth commentary on da Vinci’s famous Mona Lisa portrait. At the end of the visit, you’ll be able to explore the museum and its various temporary and permanent exhibitions at your own leisure. From ancient civilizations (Egyptian, Greek, Etruscan, Roman and Oriental) to sculptures, paintings, graphic arts as well as more modern works (up to 1848); there is an incredible amount of art to discover. The cost of this tour is higher because you will be accompanied by an experienced guide.
It’s even possible to reserve a minibus group excursion that leaves from your hotel (or auberge, B&B, apartment...) and that includes a guided visit of the Louvre with priority access. You will save time while admiring the beautiful paintings, the sculptures, the major archaeological pieces ...
Visit of the Louvre: interiors and exteriors
Since 1973, this former residence of the Kings of France has been one of the richest museums in Paris and has become the most visited with a stifling average of 50 visitors per minute. A major work of art on display -- at least outside -- is the glass pyramid located at the museum’s entrance, and its main attraction is the Mona Lisa who is admired by more than 20,000 people a day. All the Louvre’s collections, however, are worth a visit. A visit to such a unique museum is worth paying entrance fees. Spread out over 18 acres worth of exhibition space on 99 acres of land right in the heart of Paris, the Louvre is an exceptional site that now has sister museums in Lens and Abu Dhabi.
You can also take the time to admire the exteriors, the Napoleon courtyard and the architectural details of the immense façades pierced by monumental windows. The exteriors being of free access, you will benefit them for an unbeatable price as they are free. Why deprive yourself?
