Start at the Louvre

The Louvre has over 35,000 artworks on display spanning over 7000 years. They are spread over 8 curatorial departments, including Egyptian Antiquities; Greek, Etruscan, and Roman Antiquities; Near Eastern Antiquities; Islamic Art; Decorative Arts; Sculpture; Paintings; Drawings, and Prints. Ranging from Egyptian artifacts that are 4,000 years old, to modern art works by Oriental artists, the Louvre is the honorary mediator of our artistic heritage.

Spend time gazing at these collections and listen carefully as your guide tells you fascinating stories and secrets about them. Get comprehensive explanations and anecdotes about three world-famous artworks in particular, the Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo, and the Coronation of Napoleon.

Marvel at Leonardo da Vinci’s invincible masterpiece, the Mona Lisa, one of the most recognizable female portraits in the world. Learn about the celebrated Greek sculpture, the Venus de Milo, depicting Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty. Be dazzled by the 33-foot-long painting of the Coronation of Napoleon by Jacques-Louis David, commemorating the crowning of Napoleon Bonaparte in 1807.

En-Route de Eiffel Tower

After your hour-long guided tour of the Louvre, sit back, and enjoy a Batobus boat cruise to the Eiffel Tower on the shimmering waters of the Seine river. This short ride will help you appreciate the view of Paris from the water, and notice the landmarks and splendid bridges along the banks of Seine, making it quite the ride to the Eiffel Tower.

A Distinct Bird’s-Eye View of Paris

Once you’ve disembarked from the boat, your guide will lead you to the foot of the Eiffel Tower. Enjoy skip-the-line access to the Eiffel Tower, allowing you to enter the monument without having to wait in line. Zoom up to the second level of the striking monument and soak up the 360-degree panoramic view of the City of Lights.

Notice emblematic Parisian sites such as the Arc de Triomphe, the Sacré-Coeur on the hill of Montmartre, the Invalides with its unmissable golden dome, the iconic Notre-Dame Cathedral, and many more. At the end of your tour, your guide will leave you at the entrance of the Eiffel Tower, where you are free to stay for as long you like.
