Introduction to the Treasures of the Louvre
2.5-hour tour. 4 person maximum.
This comprehensive tour is an ideal introduction to the diversity and richness of the Louvre. It is designed with the first-time visitor in mind. We follow a roughly chronological circuit, exploring highlights of the Louvre's Ancient Near East, Greek and Roman, and Renaissance Italian collections. The tour also incorporates the fascinating architectural history of the Louvre's pre-museum life as a royal palace. We will see the most celebrated of all the Louvre's treasures—the Khorsabad Palace, the Venus de Milo, Nike of Samothrace, Leonardo's Mona Lisa, Michelangelo's Slaves—but we will also take the time to understand their significance to the history of art.
Please be aware that there may be an unavoidable wait for the Mona Lisa.
Rates. €113 for individuals, or €98 per person for parties of two or more. Includes price of admission. €20 surcharge to guarantee that your party has a one-on-one tour with the instructor, without other parties. 4 person maximum.
