What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Louvre Museum Audio Tour

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

Once you have collected your museum map and audio guide in a choice of nine languages, head to the Louvre and skip the long entrance lines to start your tour. The Louvre is one of the world’s largest museums, but don’t be intimidated – your handy map provides suggested routes to help you plan your visit, and your educational audio guide allows you to enjoy a more meaningful museum experience.

As you make your way through the museum, listen to commentary about the fascinating history and significance of the many artistic masterpieces you encounter, from the iconic Greek statue Venus de Milo to the staggeringly large painting of The Coronation of Napoleon to Leonardo da Vinci’s famously enigmatic Mona Lisa. Admire sculptures by Michelangelo and paintings by Raphael, Rubens and Rembrandt. View the Babylonian Code of Hammurabi and other ancient artifacts. There’s so much to see!

Your audio guide provides a summary of some of the most popular and most famous exhibits at the Louvre, but there is still plenty more to see. When you have finished with the audio guide, wander the museum at your leisure, have a snack at one of the museum’s many eateries, or browse the selection of publications and artworks at the bookstores before returning your audio guide to the place you collected it from, before 8pm

Perfect for us, we enjoyed being able to walk around the museum at our own pace and the audio tour was very interesting. We were staying near the louvre anyway so picking up and returning the map and audio equipment was very easy.

The tour suited our needs perfectly and the skip the line tickets were very much required after seeing the very long line! The map and audio guide provide were very helpful the only tip would be is to take earphones as these will plug into the audio and negate the need to hold the radio to your ear at each point of interest. Overall we were very happy with the self paced tour and would recommend!
