Your LivTours Louvre Private Tour will take you to the Ancient Egypt collections, take a close look at the sleek granite Great Sphinx of Tanis. Discovered in an Egyptian temple in the 1800s, this sphinx is considered to be the biggest and best-preserved in any Western museum.
Once you are through visiting Egypt, it’s time to explore two of Ancient Greece’s globally recognizable sculptures – the armless Venus de Milo and the headless Winged Victory of Samothrace. Although both of the goddesses are missing a few parts, they are universally considered some of the best-surviving original Hellenistic sculptures. Just a short walk from Venus de Milo you will get a chance to see some impressive Italian sculptures including Michelangelo’s powerful Rebellious Slave & Dying Slave as well as Canova’s passionate Cupid & Psyche.
Before beholding Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, you will take a tour of some of the Louvre’s other eye-catching canvasses. This portion of the tour will include stops by Paolo Veronese’s Wedding Feast of Cana, Jacques-Louis David’s Coronation of Napoleon, and icons of French Romanticism like Delacroix’s Liberty Leading the People and Théodore Géricault’s Raft of Medusa.
Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa
Of all the thousands of paintings housed in the Louvre, Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa remains the most popular and enigmatic work. Supposedly the portrait of a 16th-century Italian noblewoman, this painting has bewitched billions over the years and inspired countless songs, films, and novels. Your LivTour guide will shed light on how this painting became one of the most well-known works of art in the world, one worth a visit.

Breathtaking art and sculpture
"Visiting the Louvre with the LivParis guide was the highlight of our trip. We saw other people in big groups or wandering around by themselves who all looked so weary and stressed. We instead enjoyed every minute. The museum is gigantic but contains so many masterpieces that seeing them in "real life" was just breathtaking. We wouldn't have had such an amazing experience if it hadn't been for this tour and our great tour guide. Thank you Ferit and LivParis!!"

"My wife and I were very pleased with this tour. We had taken the Vatican tour with LivTours two years ago so we knew that the company was very professional and delivered all that was promised. We were not disappointed with their Louvre tour. The guide, Josie, was exceptionally well prepared and a charming person as well. We enjoyed listening to all that she had to share and to chatting with her about her life in Paris and her studies abroad. We can definitely recommend this tour company for whatever tour you might be interested in."
