Description

Skip the Louvre’s famously long lines gives and visit the museum’s must-see attractions. Your expert guide will unveil subtle details most visitors never learn about the works of art on show. Discover the 'Mona Lisa', the 'Venus de Milo' and the 'Winged Victory of Samothrace'. The tour also features Greek and Roman antiquities like the 4,000-year-old 'Great Sphinx of Tanis', other recognisable works by Da Vinci and Raphael, and highlights of the French Romantic period. Sculptures like Michelangelo’s 'Dying Slave' and Antonio Canova’s 'Psyche Revived by Cupid’s Kiss' add another dimension to the experience. In the Apollo Gallery, you’ll glimpse the Louvre’s own history as the Royal Palace, before Louis XIV relocated the court to Versailles. The equally opulent décor of the Second Empire is also preserved in the Napoleon Apartments. After the tour, you can continue exploring the Louvre at your leisure.
