Meeting Point : Next to the Equestrian Statue of Louis XIV in front of the Pyramid of the Louvre 75001 Paris
Initially a medieval castle, before becoming a royal palace and then a national museum, the Louvre itself is a masterpiece. It contains treasures from ancient civilisations and the many artistic movements throughout the history of mankind, including iconic works like the Mona Lisa or the Venus de Milo.
Equipped with fast track tickets and accompanied by a private guide, this tour allows you to discover the Louvre without any delays at the entrance. And you will also benefit from following a personalised itinerary, ensuring that you won't miss any of the museum's finest works or the secrets of their unique histories. If you have a passion for art and the people who create it, there is no finer Parisian activity.
Alongside the Eiffel Tower and the Pompidou Centre, the Louvre is a must-visit monument in Paris. Located a few steps away from the Place Vendôme and the Palais Royal, it bears the marks of a rich and remarkable history.
A medieval fortress was first erected on the current site in the 12th century, which was transformed into a sumptuous royal palace during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. In the late 17th century, Louis XIV decided to reside at the Palace of Versailles. Instead of serving as a royal residence, the Palace of the Louvre then became a store house for the royal family's works of art. When the monarchy collapsed during the revolution, it then became a national museum - a treasure trove for all of the people to enjoy. In 1989, American architect I.M. Pei was recruited to design the famous glass pyramid - a symbol of the architectural eclecticism which characterises the history of this 800 year-old monument.
Nowadays, the Louvre contains 60,000 square metres of exhibition space and some 35,000 works. With so much on display, specific works can sometimes be difficult to find. But this isn't a problem when you take a private tour. This tour allows you to discover unmissable works in the collection, as well as the many hidden treasures: you can visit at your own pace and converse with your guide, taking full advantage of their passion and expertise.
When you join one of our tours, you will be superbly positioned to appreciate the mysterious smile of the Mona Lisa, a true masterpiece of the Italian Renaissance. You will understand the power of the ancient Greek sculpture of Aphrodite, popularly called the "Venus de Milo", which stands more than two metres high, as well as the pure lyricism of "Freedom guiding the people" painted by the Romantic master EugèneDelacroix.
When you pay the Louvre a visit, don't forget to look out the window too. You'll discover a unique view of the Louvre's courtyard, the River Seine, and the Rue de Rivoli. And if you wish to enjoy the open air, take a walk through the gardens of the Carrousel and the Tuileries, where you can admire 200 statues and vases dating from the 17th to the 21st century.
