Alternatively, combine the Louvre with stops at the Eiffel Tower, Montmartre, and Notre Dame Cathedral.

Highlights of the antiquity section include the Seated Scribe and Venus de Milo. From the Renaissance, don't miss famous works by Michelangelo, Raphael, Botticelli, and Titian. French 19th-century masterpieces include Gericault's The Raft of the Medusa and the work of David and Delacroix.

A terrific tour!
Adam was an excellent tour guide! He shepherded our group effortlessly and managed to impart a lot of information in three hours and be engaging throughout. We especially appreciated how he managed to weave a theme throughout the various galleries. Would definitely recommend the tour to anyone remotely interested in art.

Louvre Museum Skip-the-line Access Private Guided Tour
Elena was a great guide . It was totally worth it. She was knowledgeable and entertaining . It took 2 minutes to get into the louvre . We would have been lost in the building without her taking us to all the best places and explaining to us how to get to other places when the tour was over . She paid special attention to our 14 year old son.

Louvre Museum Skip the Line Must-Sees Guided Tour
It was a fantastic experience, the tour guide adapted the tour to my wishes and the time passed quickly. We saw Liberty leading the people, the Mona Lisa and many other fantastic known pieces that you would not accidentally pass, including the rooms of Napoléon III. 100 percent recommended. I had previously done a Louvre Tour on my own and left feeling overwhelmed, not having seen too many important known pieces and getting lost in the end, so this guided tour changed my whole perception of the Louvre, and I loved that we covered the Louvre as a palace for French kings and queens as well.

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.
