Tour description provided by Viator

See it all in just one day on this joint tour between the historic center of Paris and its most famous museum, the Louvre. Our 5 to 5.5 hour private tour lets you see it all with one of our delightful guides that you’ll have all to yourself.
The city of Paris has spiraled out from Notre Dame over the centuries, so we think it’s only appropriate to start our group tour here, with a visit inside to view to its iconic stained glass windows. We’ll move towards the city’s oldest bridge and to its perfectly manicured flowerbeds at the Tuileries Gardens. Stand where heads rolled at the Place de la Concorde while learning about the world’s most beautiful   avenue, the Champs Elysées. We’ll introduce you to the characters that built this city, including Henri IV, Louis XIV, and Napoleon Bonaparte, with stories you won’t find in the guidebooks. After a break for lunch, we’ll skip the lines at the Louvre museum to discuss the highlights and masterpieces that attract millions of visitors to the museum each year. After the tour you’ll be well versed in the museum’s history and secrets, and you’ll understand – well, almost – why thousands of people take selfies with the Mona Lisa.  It’s the most famous museum in the world, and with good reason. From its roots as a fortress to its days as a royal residence, the Louvre museum has more secrets than any building in Paris could ever hold. This intimate private Louvre Museum tour seeks to captivate first timers as well as those who think they know it all as you visit statues like the armless Venus de Milo and the headless Winged Victory of Samothrace. Drool over the crowned jewels in the opulent Apollo Gallery and descend into the depths of the medieval moat beneath the museum. We’ll even discuss a few master painters like Michelangelo and Delacroix. From the smiling Mona Lisa to the 19th century masters, our passionate guides will show you what you need to see at the Louvre, as well as a few surprises not in the guidebooks.
