Louvre Highlights Small Group Tour: Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo & Winged Victory

Discover the best of the Louvre on this fascinating two-hour tour led by an expert guide. Enjoy skip the line access so you don’t waste any time waiting in long lines and have more time exploring the key masterpieces of the Louvre Museum.

The Louvre is a must-see in Paris, not just for its incredible art but for the history held within its walls. This was once a palace where princes rode their horses up and down the hallways; a sprawling complex fortified to protect the first family of France. Go beyond the obvious on this jam-packed Louvre Highlights Tour, peering behind the artworks to unlock their secrets.

Discover famous French works like Géricault’s ‘Raft of Medusa’, which depicts the true story of shipwrecked sailors driven to cannibalism. Of course, da Vinci’s ‘Mona Lisa’ will play a major role in your tour. You won’t believe how tiny the Louvre’s most famous artwork is, nor how many guests have tried to destroy her!

Explore a special room filled with crown jewels with your guide on hand to point out the incredible details. At the sculpture gallery you will encounter another Italian in Michelangelo’s ‘Slaves’, plus, Anthony Canova’s incredibly romantic ‘Psyche Revived by Cupid’s Kiss’.

As you explore, you will have headsets to help you hear your guide and to ensure that you don’t get lost. Traveling in a small group of just 20 people or fewer (including you), means you will also find them easier to interact with and question. All the better since they have all the answers!
