The Basics

Book skip-the-line tickets to save time at the perennially popular Louvre or attend with an art expert guide for a more in-depth visit—art lovers and novices alike will benefit from such insight.

Louvre Museum Skip-the-Line Guided Tour with Venus de Milo & Mona Lisa
The Louvre is a massive art museum. While this tour is three hours in length, it goes by fast in seeing some of the popular attractions. I would recommend taking the earlier tour if you would like to check out certain parts of the museum on your own afterwards.
Great experience!

Louvre Museum Skip the Line Must-Sees Guided Tour
The meeting place was being renovated, so at first, we didn't know where to find our guide. He tried to call and later on he was able to find us. It was indeed a skip the line at the Louvre. We were 6 in the group, which was perfect. Our guide, Avi, was so knowledgeable and was able to address our needs. We highly recommend this company for this kind of tour. Thank you!
Our guide Benan was great

The perfect way to experience the Louvre. Great overview of the highlights, history, etc. We saw the main attractions plus some areas that were fascinating that we would’ve missed on our own. Our guide was so knowledgeable and friendly.

Louvre Museum Ticket & Seine River Cruise
It was a great price to see the louvre and the Seine river cruise. On the Louvre Museum is a self guided tour. I recommend to go at night on the Seine River cruise tour to see the Eiffel Tower sparkle at night.
Don’t hesitate, book this Tour!

Fantastic tour, I feel so enlightened about the Louvre and its history. Highly recommend this tour. Our guide was so knowledgeable and highlighted on just the right things for the tour. I will be back because the Louvre is so large but now I feel I can navigate it on my own.

Underrated Artworks at the Louvre

Most visitors flock to the Mona Lisa, but the Louvre is so much more than da Vinci's moody muse. Make time for Ingres' Grande Odalisque, an 18th-century nude; the cheeky 16th-century Gabrielle d’Estrées and One of Her Sisters; and a Goya classic—The Countess del Carpio. You can even explore the ruins of the fortress upon which the Louvre is built.
