What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Louvre Museum Audio Tour

Admire the Venus de Milo on your audio tour of the Louvre

Avoid standing in a long queue on your Paris vacation with this skip-the-line admission to the Louvre that includes an audio tour. Your experience starts when you pick up your museum map and audio guide at a central location in Paris, near the Louvre. Then head to the museum and skip the ticket line, going straight inside to begin your independent tour.

One of the world’s biggest museums, the Louvre is quite overwhelming. But don’t worry — your map outlines suggested itineraries and your audio guide provides interesting information about the most-loved and best-known works of art on display. Hear about the histories and meanings behind statues like Venus de Milo, paintings like The Coronation of Napoleon and world-famous pieces like Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. See ancient artifacts, the Babylonian Code of Hammurabi, works by Raphael and Rembrandt, sculptures by Michelangelo and much, much more.

After the 2.5-hour audio tour ends, you are free to stay at the museum to continue exploring at your leisure. When you get tired or hungry, visit one of the many on-site eateries, or purchase gifts and souvenirs at the bookstore.

Leave whenever you wish, but make sure you return the audio guide to the location where you picked it up before 8pm.

My wife and I booked this tour for April 15 at 10 am.
Alas, due to unforeseen circumstances at FCO airport we missed our flight to Paris.
So I contacted Viator in order to reschedule tour and they, together with Paris City Vision, did it even though it was on extremely short notice!
And staff at Paris City Vision was very, very helpful, kind and professional.

Access was great no waiting. However, audio tour was a little hard to find as only selected pieces so might have been better to just hire audit inside the Louvre.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

Need to go to an entrance other than the pyramid to truly skip the line. I did this and got in in a very short period of time. I honestly did not use the audio guide but took this option because I prefer to roam on my own, and this was the most reasonable skip the line option I found. Would purchase again.

I enjoyed the interactive map. It' s a great new technology. It enables the participant target specific art work and find one's way. In a facility as enormous as the Louvre this is an advantage.

The only way to see the Louvre is you only have a few hours. You buy this tour online, pick up your tickets at the tour office around the corner 5 minute walk to the Lourve get your headsets with all the highlights to hit. It took us about 2 1/2 hours to see all the must works of art. Skip the HUGE line of people waiting to buy tickets. You go through security and are inside in minutes. There are free lockers once inside to store all your belongings. Would Highly recommended this tour to everyone. Enjoy!

This was a really enjoyable tour if you want to see the Louvre at your own pace and skip the lines.

Kevin R

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

The tour was great. Self guided which allowed you to see those things you wanted and spend as long as you wanted at those points. The audio devices worked great and the ability to touch the icon on the handheld map to hear about those famous paintings was amazing. We have used Viator for several trips and will continue to use them
