Full description
Start your day of adventure by meeting your informative tour guide and tour group in front of the Louvre. You will enjoy the stress-free benefit of skip-the-line tickets and head straight into the museum, though not before you learn all about the stunning glass pyramid that crowns the entrance and some of the controversy and legends that surround it.

Inside the museum, you’ll explore some of the lesser known parts of the collection while also taking in the main highlights. Is the Raft of the Medusa a masterpiece about cannibals? Who really posed for Leonardo da Vinci’s most famous paintings? What is sacred geometry and why were some of the greatest minds in history obsessed with it? This tour is chock full of history and mystery, dark deeds and Da Vinci codes, and even a conspiracy theory or two.

During this Louvre tour, you’ll see the highlights of the collection and learn a lifetime of fascinating things about them. The difference on this tour is that you get to dive into some of the more controversial and mysterious theories surrounding the art. It’s a fun and engaging experience for both longtime art lovers and people who don’t usually visit art museums.
