The itinerary

Our skip-the-line tickets give priority access to the museum, however, please note that due to the Vigipirate Plan (increased security measures), there may be a waiting period at the security checkpoint at the entrance to the museum.

Your front row seat to the show begins in the Denon wing of the Louvre where you’ll meet the Italian Renaissance maestros including Botticelli, Fra Angelico, and bien sûr our old friend Leonardo Da Vinci. You’ll soon realize that your guides prefer qualité to quantité. You’ll spend ample time discussing—maybe even acting out—the historical context, artistic significance, and composition of each work of art. Oh and don’t worry, you’ll get your dose of trivia to impress your friends at the next cocktail party. Did you know, for instance, that Terminus was the God of boundaries, hence the modern word “terminus”?

During act II, the French masters take their place in the limelight. Spend some time savoring the works of big shots such as Théodore Géricault and Eugene Delacroix, to name a couple. Imposing large-format paintings like the Raft of the Medusa and the Coronation of Napoleon will astound you with their impressive dimensions and dramatic depictions. While you’ll certainly take ample time to analyze these masterworks, your guide will also take a moment here and there to introduce some of the lesser-known gems along the way. Let’s broaden those horizons!

Also included in this tour is a look at the Greek and Roman sculpture sections of the museum. Works like the triumphant Winged Victory of Samothrace, the attractively arm-less Venus de Milo, and Psyche Revived by Cupid's kiss are some of the must-see highlights. Others include the 17th and 18th century School of Flanders, the breathtaking Egyptian section (one of the world's largest), the newly opened Islamic art section, the Medieval Louvre, and the ostentatious Napoleon III apartments.

Perhaps you’re looking for something a little more customized to your personal interests? Pas de probleme! If there’s a particular section of the museum you’d prefer to focus on, be sure to ask—after all when you take a private tour with Localers, the visitor is always in the driver’s seat. By the time you’re finished you’ll wonder how a museum visit could’ve possibly been this much fun!

Please note that due to museums loaning works or collections to other museums, Localers cannot guarantee that every work listed on our website will be on display. We try our best to notify our clients when a work they have requested will not be available for their viewing.
