What To Expect
This skip-the-line small-group tour means you get to walk right past the long line outside the Louvre and dive into your Louvre tour right away. The museum is huge and can be overwhelming, but with an expert guide to lead the way you'll be assured of not missing any of the important pieces in the expansive collection.
See world-famous pieces by the likes of Raphael and Delacroix, the gentle curves of the 'Venus de Milo,' the tragic scene of 'The Raft of the Medusa' and the sly smile of the 'Mona Lisa.'
Take a midday break for lunch (own expense) at a nearby restaurant or cafe, accompanied by your guide, followed by a short walk to the Musée d’Orsay on the other side of the Seine River. The beautiful building housing the museum was once a train station—the Gare d'Orsay—and now contains more than 4,000 pieces of art by 19th-century masters like Monet, Rodin, and Van Gogh.
Again, enjoy skip-the-line entry at the Musée d’Orsay to avoid waiting, and begin your tour right away. Learn about the French Impressionist movement, begun by artists like Renoir, Cézanne, Manet and Gauguin. Hear about what made their techniques revolutionary as you listen to your guide's insights into the Impressionist and post-Impressionist paintings you see in the museum.
At the conclusion of your tour, you can enjoy more time to explore the museum's collection at your leisure.
