The Louvre Made Easy

Skip the Louvre’s long lines and follow your guide and group of just 25 people directly to the masterpieces you want to see most. This compact tour delivers the best of the collection timing in at just an hour and a half, so you're free to explore the rest of the museum, or Paris itself.

Description

What better way to get Paris under your skin than relishing in unforgettable experiences at two of the city’s top sights! Both are veritable must-see icons and this fascinating combo delivers the best of each with skip the line entry and uncanny insight from passionate local experts. This amazing Versailles and Louvre guided tour package includes the Hall of Mirrors, Grand Apartments and lush Gardens at Versailles, followed by 1.5 hours in the Louvre with the masterpieces you can’t go home without seeing - Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo and Nike of Samothrace to name but a few!

After a comfortable private coach ride from central Paris to Versailles, you’ll learn about the history of this UNESCO recognized palace as your guide leads you through the sumptuous Grand Apartments and State Rooms culminating in the dazzling Hall of Mirrors. You’ll also see royal bedrooms and salons filled with stunning artworks, chandeliers and ornate furnishings in an aura of opulence, sending the message that the Sun King, Louis XIV, wished to France and the world - Le roi gouverne par lui-même, or ‘the King governs alone’.

You’ll also have the chance to enjoy the Gardens of Versailles with one hour of free time to explore these treasure laden grounds. Covering 1,800 acres, this manicured park was designed by court painter Charles Le Brun and the King’s master gardener André Le Nôtre to emulate the luxury of the Versailles interior. Complete with stunning fountains, orange groves, rolling lawns and its own Grand Canal stretching nearly as far as the eye can see, this was the Sun King’s paradise at his anything but humble abode. You'll also be able to crown your experience with the Musical Fountains Show depending on the day of your visit.

Our private coach will take you back to Paris where you’ll have free time to eat lunch and for the excitement to build for your afternoon tour. Meet your guide for perhaps the world’s largest and most impressive art museum, the Louvre. On this tour of its greatest masterpieces you’ll be on the fast track to experience the Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, Nike of Samothrace and more with the captivating stories behind their silent poses from an avid art historian in a group of no more than 25 people.

The most irresistible of these is of course Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, likely a portrait of Lisa Gherardini, the wife of a wealthy Florentine cloth merchant painted between 1503 and 1506.Your guide will provide you with a number of interpretations, and you'll be able to decide for yourself what it is that makes her gaze so penetrating.

Don’t let the best of Versailles and the Louvre slip away on your Paris visit. These easy guided tours have been organized so that your day is both smooth and enlightening, leaving you with nothing but the joy of travel.

Josephine was an excellent guide. She was very versed on the art we were seeing as well as sharing a lot of history during the tour. We were able to see the "highlights" of Louvre while having someone knowledgeable answer our questions. I have shared a lot of the information learned during the tour with others and they are impressed! Thanks so much for a great experience.
