What a better way to understand more than 800 years of fascinating history than by doing it with a licenced guide and art historian in a semi-private tour?

Skip the long lines at the entrance of the museum and get ready to discover exceptionnals Art History masterpieces !

We'll discover the foundations of the medieval Louvre and its secrets, the collection of roman and greek antique sculptures, among which masterpieces such as the Venus de Milo and the Winged Victory of Samothrace. We will also explore the incredible collection of Italian Renaissance paintings, from gothic paintings to Leonardo da Vinci and the famous Mona Lisa. We'll scroll in the magnificent gallery of Apollo, built under the reign of Louis XIV, and to finish the visit i'll tell you all about the masterpieces of the french Romanticism and Neoclassicism such as the Coronation of Napoleon, or the Liberty leading the people.

If at the end of the visit you are left unsatisfied, know that you will have the possibility of staying in the museum to take advantage of other works at your own rhythm.

    Don’t hesitate! Book this tour. The Louvre is large and unmanageable without a kind, fun, informative guide like this one. You can really feel Sylvanie’s passion for art and her joy in sharing her favorite parts of the Louvre with you. You could tromp through in your own or you could join this tour and make a memorable connection with an art lover. There were also two kids in our group and Sylvanie was really sweet and made many gestures to include them.

    This was the best $$ on a tour I could have have spent. Sylvanie was a fantastic guide and really helped the kids understand the art in this massive place. She was so patient and engaging with them—I will def be booking her in the future for her other tours!!

    I’ve been to tours all over Europe and this was one of, if not the best! Sylvanie’s knowledge of art, sense of humor, and easy going nature was excellent. Her English is like a native so if you are from the US, UK, or Australia, this is the tour for you!

    Sylvanie was amazing and show us key points we expected. Remember, if you have few hour to discovery Louvre, you want to meet Sylvanie. If you have more than 2 hour, I recommend a longer booking with her.

    This tour was much better than expected because Sylvanie explained history in an understandable and comfortable way. I liked the art she chose and how she included me as a visitor in analyzing the art.
