Information from Viator
Whether it is your first or one hundredth visit to the Louvre, there is something for everyone on this exclusive tour. Your expert guide will lead you through the museum as you visit the Louvre’s must-sees. Marvel at masterpieces in the Louvre’s most significant collections from Mesopotamia to French Romanticism, including, of course, the Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo, and Winged Victory.
After having skipped the line, your three-hour Louvre tour begins with a brief introduction to the Louvre as a palace before moving into greek Hellenistic art. Your guide will show you key pieces from this era and bring you to the venus de milo. From then you will move through Roman sculptures and learn to analyse the differences between greek, roman, and other genres of sculpture before moving into the Etruscan collection. Your introduction into antiquity culminates with Winged Victory of Samorthrace. From here, you will see one of the few rooms left in the louvre in its original condition and then move on to Italian renaissance. See how art evolved in such a short period of time on your way to the Mona Lisa. From here you will see some of the most recent pieces in the louvre from french artists of the 19th century. Before you leave the museum, you will see one last gallery of sculpture including Michelangelo’s slaves!
