Explore the magnificent Louvre museum with an expert guide on this more intimate evening private tour of what used to be a royal fortress, and the palace of the Kings and Queens of France before the French Revolution. Today the Louvre is considered one of the most important museums in the world. It boasts a vast collection of over 35,000 pieces of art ranging from ancient Greece, Egypt and Rome, through the Italian Renaissance, the Revolution and the Napoleonic era.
On your tour you will hear many intriguing stories about the building itself and the scandals of the royal families who lived here over the centuries. You’ll see the Revolution and Rise of Napoleon through the art of the era, and wander through halls and galleries that were once the private domain of the French royals.
You will also see and learn all about the incredible collection of Greek and Egyptian antiquities, including the magnificent Winged Victory of Samothrace – one of the most memorable pieces of sculpture in the world, the beautiful Venus de Milo, an extraordinary Hermaphrodite, and the remarkable Great Sphinx of Tanis.
The private evening tour is a really wonderful time to appreciate the treasures of the Louvre in a more intimate way, including some of the most famous statues and paintings in the world. You’ll see Michelangelo’s moving unfinished slaves and Canova’s romantic Cupid and Psyche. You’ll also explore the iconic works of French artists like Delacroix, David and Gericault, whilst hearing all the fascinating histories of the era – from the bloody Revolution to the Napoleonic Empire.
The Louvre houses a vast collection, so your guide will ensure you see the most important highlights, including of course the Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci – arguably the most famous painting in the world!
