See the Mona Lisa and have her secrets that will be revealed to you. Why is it the most famous painting in the world? Who is she and what is so special about her?

The Louvre has so much more to offer than this amazing painting. Join us and travel through time, from Ancient Egypt to Ancient Greece, from the Middle Ages through the Renaissance, the XVIIth century “Grand Siècle”, to finish your journey in the XIXth century. Your guide will ensure you see all the highlights of the museum, and much more.

The Louvre offers many secrets. Before becoming a museum in 1793, it was a royal palace, and before that was a fortress built in 1190. After discovering the remains of the medieval fortress, you will catch a glimpse of the Egyptian art with a 4000 years old sphinx. Then, to understand the origin of European and, more generally, Western civilisation, you will discover the evolution of Greek sculptures with treasures such as The Venus de Milo and The Winged Victory of Samothrace.

Throughout the tour your guide will point out the elements that remind us this building was once a royal palace. See the extravagent Apollo Gallery, built for the Sun King, Louis XIV, and the gorgeous crown jewels, including one of the purest diamonds in the world - the Regent.

Before discovering the Renaissance, why not admire the art of medieval Italy in order to better understand the Renaissance and Leonardo Da Vinci? You’ll also see Veronese’s Wedding at Cana, the biggest painting of the museum  at 70m² or 753ft².

What about the French? Of course our guide will show you the masterpieces. From Neo-Classicism with David and his renowned Coronation of Napoleon, to Romantic paintings like The Raft of the Medusa or Liberty leading the People, you will be impressed by these grand format paintings, witnesses to an eventful era.

Before you leave the museum you must also see Michelangelo’s Slaves, and what better way to end this amazing tour than by strolling through the sumptuous apartments of Emperor Napoleon III.
