You will explore this stunning collection of paintings, sculpture and architecture with an expert English speaking guide. You will enter the museum through the original Mediaeval structure dating from the 12th century which was originally intended as a fortress. Join your guide on a journey from one breathtaking gallery to the next as you travel through time visiting works dating from nearly 450 BC through the 19th century. Begin with the Lapith frieze from the Ancient Greek parthenon, then gaze at the impeccably graceful Venus de Milo. Admire one of the Louvre's most celebrated sculptures, Winged Victory of Samothrace. Continue on to the Apollo Gallery that houses the ornate royal crowns of Napoleon and Louis XV. The tour was conceived and designed to bring together all of the museum's most famous works. Stand in awe as you enter each wing and marvel at such influential pieces as Canova's Psyche and Cupid and Delacroix's painting Liberty Leading the People, depicting the sentiment of the French Revolution. The work of the master Michelangelo awaits you in the renaissance wing and you will discover firsthand what makes Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa the most enigmatic portrait of all time.
