Detailed Description

Detailed Description

Explore the world’s most famous museum, the Louvre, with this exclusive Skip the Line tour! With this all-inclusive small group tour you will explore this stunning collection of paintings, sculpture, and architecture with an expert, English-speaking guide.

Join your guide on a journey from one breathtaking gallery to the next as you travel through time visiting works dating from nearly 450 BCE through the 19th century. Begin with the medieval foundations of this ancient royal residence, and then gaze at the graceful Venus de Milo. Admire one of the Louvre’s most celebrated sculptures, Winged Victory of Samothrace. Continue on to the Apollo Gallery, which houses the ornate royal crowns of Napoleon and King Louis XV and be riveted by the valiant tales of these inimitable leaders.

This tour was specifically conceived and designed to bring together all of the museum’s most famous works. Stand in awe as you enter each new wing and gaze upon some of the world’s most monumental and recognizable masterpieces. Marvel at love set in stone in Canova’s Psyche and Cupid and Delacroix’s famous painting depicting the French struggle for freedom, Liberty Leading the People. The work of the master Michelangelo awaits you in the Italian sculpture hall – and you will discover firsthand what makes Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa the most enigmatic portrait of all time.

The Louvre displays over 35,000 pieces (380,000 in its basements!) spanning over 60,000 square meters. Seeing all this museum has to offer is an impossible task. This small group tour helps you make the most of your time in the Louvre, leading you through the best of the collection and some hidden gems, all the while saving you time with Skip the Line Access.

Additional Information

Three worldwide famous works

Victory of Samothrace

"Victory of Samothrace" Samothrace (island in the North Aegean Sea) Circa 190 BC

For the Greeks, the goddess of Victory (Nike) was a beautiful young woman endowed with wings. This exceptional monument, raised upon the isle of Samothrace, set in a niche overlooking the sanctuary of the Great Gods, celebrates success at sea. The goddess stands on the prow of a galley, resisting the gusty storm, her right arm undoubtedly held high. It was an ex-voto of the Rhodians for a victory won at the beginning of the 2nd century BC: the attitude and the animated draping prefigure the reliefs for the altar of Pergamum.

Victory of Samothrace

"Venus de Milo" Melos (the Cyclades islands) Circa 100 BC

In spite of lacking attributes, the size and the attitude of this statue allow its identification as a goddess: Aphrodite, often represented half nude, or Amphitrite, goddess of the sea, venerated on the island of Melos. The style is characteristic of the late Hellenistic period, which revives classical themes while innovating. Thus the slipping drapery on the hips entails a closed stance and introduces an instancy to the figure. It hides the joint between the two blocks of marble that were sculpted separately, as were the left arm and leg, according to an utterly new technique.

The Mona Lisa

The Mona Lisa (1479 - d. before 1550) also known as La Gioconda 1503-1506

If Vasari is correct, the portrait which Leonardo took to France, that was acquired by François I, was of the Mona Lisa, who in 1495 married Francesco di Bartolomeo di Zanoli del Giocondo. The title "La Gioconda" would thus derive from this notable Florentine's surname. But in Italian "gioconda" also means a light-hearted woman. With a lasting effect on Italian art, this portrait stood for an ideal. The smile that gives her life is, however, a feature of many of Leonardo's figures. Several scholars have concluded that the portrait was worked on over a long period, starting around 1505-1506 in Florence, and it was finished during the course of Leonardo's peregrinations in Milan or Rome.
