See the best of the Louvre in just two hours with skip the line tickets so you won’t waste time waiting in line.
Led by an expert local tour guide, you’ll explore key pieces of the Louvre Museum, focusing on the stories behind the artists & their works rather than the technical details; for a more enjoyable experience of this sometimes intimidating gallery.
The Louvre is a must-see in Paris, not just for its incredible art but for the history held within its walls. This was once a palace where princes rode their horses up and down the hallways; a sprawling complex fortified to protect the first family of France. Go beyond the obvious on our jam-packed Louvre Highlights Tour, peering behind the artworks to unlock their secrets.
You’ll see famous French works like Géricault’s ‘Raft of Medusa’, which depicts the true story of shipwrecked sailors driven to cannibalism. Of course da Vinci’s ‘Mona Lisa’ will play a major role in your tour. You won’t believe how tiny the Louvre’s most famous artwork is, nor how many guests have tried to destroy her! At the sculpture gallery you’ll encounter another Italian in Michelangelo’s ‘Slaves’; plus Anthony Canova’s incredibly romantic ‘Psyche Revived by Cupid’s Kiss’.
You’ll also get a sense for that other use of the Louvre, as a royal palace. With your guide on hand to point out the details, you’ll notice the beautiful ceiling panels and explore a special room filled with crown jewels.
As you explore, you’ll have headsets to help you hear your guide and to ensure that you don’t get lost. Traveling in a small group of just 20 people or fewer (including you), means you’ll also find them easier to interact with and question. All the better since they have all the answers! We hire only the best, most qualified licensed guides to lead our Louvre tours.
Skip long lines and join us on this short (but sweet) adventure into the heart of French art and history.
