Skip the long lines at the Louvre Museum, and go straight to the Louvre’s most iconic works: the ‘Venus de Milo’, ‘Winged Victory of Samothrace’, and the ‘Mona Lisa’. This 2-hour Louvre Museum tour is led by an expert museum guide, and after visiting the museum’s highlights, you can explore the museum on your own for the rest of the day.
Make your way to the Louvre Museum, where you’ll meet your guide near the museum entrance. The Louvre is known for some of the longest lines in Paris, but you’ll walk right in with your guide.
Learn the history of the Louvre Museum as you walk to three highlights of the vast collection. Stand at the foot of the towering Winged Victory of Samothrace, who represents the messenger goddess Victory. The flowing cloak and muscular figure are full of life and energy—even though the statue is more than 2,000 years old.
Continue to another beloved statue, the Venus de Milo, among the most famous works to have survived from ancient Greece. Find out how the sensuous statue was lost, and found, on the tiny Aegean island of Milos. You’ll also see Da Vinci’s celebrated Mona Lisa, which is often described as the best-known painting in the world, and your guide will share what’s known, and what still remains a mystery, about the exquisite portrait.
After this 2-hour tour of the Louvre, you’ll have independent time to visit the rest of the museum, and your guide can point the way towards the exhibits that interest you most.

I really enjoyed this tour. I got lucky and was the only one booked for the tour. The guide was very good and he was great at explaining the art as well as answering all my questions. He also gave me some great recommendations on areas of the Louvre to explore after the tour that were amazing and not as crowded. Thank you !
Bought these tickets the same day of the attraction period this certificate was so easy and we got right to the top up of the Arc De Triumph as well as skipped all the long lines. No better way to plan activities than Viator!
Great tour to see the most famous pieces and navigate the crowds efficiently. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Was a little hard to hear with single ear piece at times but well worth it overall.
Great tour when you do not have time to dedicate a full day..or three..to fully see the Louvre. There is so much to see that it is impossible on a tight schedule but our guide brought us to the highlights and gave us some pertinent history we were not aware of. It was perfect timing and the skip the line feature is fantastic!
