At any given time, there are 35,000 works on show in the Louvre collection. You could spend an entire vacation trying to see all of it and still only scratch the surface. If, however, you only have a couple of hours, our Louvre Highlights Tour is the perfect way to get the best from your time.
After meeting your Art Historian guide in front of the Louvre, with a group of no more than 19 other people, your first of port-of-call will be Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa. Your Skip-the-Line Highlights Tour will then feature sculptures by Michelangelo and Antonio Canova; classic paintings from the French Romantics like Delacroix's Victory Leading the People and Gericault's The Raft of the Medusa; the iconic statue of the Venus de Milo; and even France's crown jewels.
As you explore, you'll also experience the full splendor of the Louvre as a building. Originally built as a defensive fortress and once a seat for French royalty, this enormous palace hosted grand balls and all types of royal affairs before it was a museum. As your tour continues, your guide will bring your surroundings to life with stories of the kings and queens whose footsteps you're walking in.
