This special early morning private tour will enable you to view Leonardo Da Vinci’s world famous masterpiece, the Mona Lisa without the crowds. On entering the Louvre, your guide will lead you through the maze of halls and corridors straight to the Mona Lisa herself. You’ll pass by many exquisite treasures – but we promise you’ll see them properly later!
The Louvre was formerly the palace of the Kings and Queens of France, and today is the most visited museum in the world. With over 8 miles of galleries, 10,000 years of history and some 550,000 works of art, “only” 35,000 of which are displayed at any one time, it is essential you have a guide to help you navigate this confusing labyrinth!
Without the usual crowds jostling for prime position, you’ll be able to view the Mona Lisa in a relaxed and peaceful way and hear her story, from the enigmatic smile, to the astonishing and shocking theft that took place in 1911. You’ll also hear the life story of Da Vinci himself, that god-like figure of the Renaissance who became a favourite of the French court.
As other visitors begin to enter, you’ll quietly exit to enjoy a private tour of the other highlights of the Louvre, that you had to rush past earlier! You’ll see all the major highlights from the Italian Renaissance, and the magnificent Greco-Roman antiquities such as the Venus de Milo and the Winged Victory of Samothrace. The architecture and gilt edged, frescoed interiors of the Louvre also contribute to its sheer magnificence. Your tour ends inside the museum, to enable you to continue exploring at your own pace. You are also welcome to exit the Louvre with your guide, who will be delighted to help you plan the rest of your morning in Paris.
