Considered one of the world’s finest museums, the Louvre in Paris boasts immense collections that could take months to explore. Hit on the highlights and make the most of your time with this Viator VIP tour. Meet your guide, one of the Louvre’s very own, near the museum entrance and head straight to the front of the long entrance queue.
Once inside the former palace, follow your guide to the most renowned and important works of art, including ancient Greek statues like Venus de Milo and The Winged Victory of Samothrace. Learn about the history of famous European paintings like Géricault’s The Raft of the Medusa and, of course, Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. These exhibits are often packed with spectators, but your staff guide and Viator VIP status will help you access the best viewing spots.
After your 2-hour tour, relax at the Café Grand Louvre beneath I. M. Pei’s iconic glass pyramid. There is often a long wait at the contemporary, light-filled café, but you’ll be seated straightaway at your group’s reserved table. Sip on a glass of Champagne or a soft drink, or upgrade to savor a 3-course meal of classic French cuisine, with or without Champagne (based on option selected at booking; see Itinerary for a sample menu).
Viator VIPs feature travel experiences not typically available to the general public — from behind-the-scenes access to private viewings and VIP service — at many of the world’s top attractions, often with no lines and no crowds. Viator VIP tours are not available from other 3rd-party online sellers.
