Your Experience

Witness the Magnificence of the Louvre

Skip the lines and head straight inside the Louvre, where your expert guide will show you the many wonders that are ensconced in this illustrious museum. Housed in the Louvre Palace, the museum boasts of an incredible 38,000 pieces on display, from prehistory to modern times. Originally the residence of the French royal family, the Louvre was repurposed to display the royal collection once Louis XIV chose to move his residence to the Versailles Palace. You can still see some vestiges of its regal past in the architecture of the museum and its surroundings.

Wander from gallery to gallery accompanied by your tour guide, who will tell you the history behind such famous objects on display as “The Raft of Medusa” by Theodore Gericault, Nike of Samothrace, and the Venus de Milo. You can learn more about the museum and some of its unique exhibits, such as Napoleon’s living quarters and the world-renown Mona Lisa. Admire the paintings of the Old Masters, such as Rubens, Raphael, Velasquez, Caravaggio, Vermeer, Titian, Rembrandt, Da Vinci, and many others, as well as artworks that are central to French History, such as Jacques-Louis David’s “The Coronation of Napoleon,” and Delacroix’s “Liberty Leading the People”, both powerful images that have been thoroughly ingrained into the public consciousness.

Marvel at the Louvre’s extensive collection of ancient historical objects, such as their Egyptian galleries which showcase the 12-ton Great Sphinx of Tanis and a colossal statue of Rameses II; the Ancient Greek and Roman wings which house 2000-year-old exhibits like the Winged Victory of Samothrace and the Venus de Milo; and the many Neoclassical, Renaissance and Modern art galleries. Learn about the significance of the exhibits and the dense cultural history contained in the Louvre from your guide, who will regale you with anecdotes and facts about these priceless treasures of human expression. Later, after the tour, you can roam the museum at your own pace, since the ticket grants you all-day access to the Louvre. A perfect treat for art aficionados everywhere, this experience is sure to enchant you and change the way you view the world forever!
