Description

You'll meet your guide underneath the immense glass pyramid of the Louvre, after the security check but before the ticketed entrance (the precise meeting point will be on your voucher).  Your guide will greet you and will take you to discover firsthand some of the most renowned collections and pieces of the Louvre, including the medieval remnants of the old royal castle, the vast Egyptian collection, the curious Venus de Milo, the crown jewelry collection, French masterpieces, and the Mona Lisa.  As home of the largest collection of artwork on the planet, the Louvre is filled with paintings, sculptures and other pieces that contain fascinating — and sometimes horrifying — secrets and backstories. Within the ancient world collections, learn about magic and long-forgotten rituals and travel through the ages as your guide brings to life dark events depicted in some of the Museum’s most iconic works. Even the world-famous Mona Lisa can be seen from a new perspective as you try to understand her enigmatic smile.  Throughout your tour, you'll also learn about the history of the Louvre itself: its medieval origins as a fortress, its importance as a royal residence and the centuries of betrayal, scandal and murder that took place here. By the end of your in-depth tour, you'll have a newfound appreciation and fascination for the Louvre Museum and the stories it contains. After your 2-hour visit, your ticket allows you to stay at the Louvre to explore the rest of the museum on your own.
