What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Louvre Museum Walking Tour including Venus de Milo and Mona Lisa

Venus de Milo, Louvre Museum Paris

Your 3-hour journey through some of the world’s great artistic treasures begins at the Arc du Carrousel, next to the Louvre entrance. Choose a morning, afternoon or evening tour and meet your English-speaking guide. Enjoy fast access to the museum with your skip-the-line pass and begin your tour through the massive venue, home to over 35,000 works of art spanning more than 73,000 square meters of exhibition space. Your entrance pass also provides complimentary audio headsets.  

Wander the diverse exhibitions, starting with the Ancient Greek Parthenon, followed by the iconic Venus de Milo. While in the ancient antiquities gallery, view the celebrated Winged Victory of Samothrace. Then head to the Apollo Gallery to see the opulent royal crowns of Napoleon and King Louis XV. Get a taste of the French Revolution with Delacroix’s painting Liberty Leading the People, and take in the Italian Renaissance as you gaze at the work of Michelangelo and Da Vinci's Mona Lisa. (See full sample list below.)

With your small group (limited to 25 people), engage in lively chats with your guide and hear entertaining anecdotes, trivia and history. Afterward, spend as much time as you like exploring the museum independently.

the tour guide was fun, enthusiastic and wonderful. the Louvre was our favorite thing we did in Paris. The Louvre is so big it would be crazy to do it on your own. Book the 3 hour tour, we did the night time tour and it was awesome.

Our tour guide, Emily was great. The tour lasted about 3hrs. Emily is very passionate about the Louvre and it showed during the tour. The guided tour is a must when visiting the Louvre!

We were very glad we took a guided tour of the Louvre. Yes, you get the assistance to make it to the high-points. However, the historical background of the Louvre was more interesting to us. We would never have gotten that information in such an interesting way without the tour. We have always heard about how big the Louvre was and how you can get lost. We are thankful that the well structured tour allowed focus and made the visit such a positive experience. We felt like we were missing so much information when we explored later by ourselves. I highly recommend that make your first visit to the Louvre with the help of this tour.

The walking tour was a perfect introduction to the Louvre. Our tour leader, Bere probably incorrect spelling was wonderful. Her knowledge was expansive and she was very keen to make sure everyone understood the art. She went over the time limit because she really wanted to share everything possible. If she is an example of the rest of the guides, I would highly recommend this company. The value was also very fair.
