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.
