Looking for things to do in Paris and don’t have time in your day to tour the Louvre? Why not tour the Louvre at night? This small group Louvre tour lets you skip the heat, lines and crowds that plague the museum during the day and provides you with a different perspective of the Louvre. This 2-hour tour includes:

 

Night Tour of the Louvre Museum

Skip the line and embark on a journey through the museums with your personal expert Louvre guide. Throughout the tour, you will walk through some of the most fascinating art exhibits in the world. Now, this museum is the world’s largest museum, but did you know that at one time its sole purpose was to serve as a fortress and then a palace? You will enjoy learning facts like this all while seeing the many artworks when you tour the Louvre.

 

The Mystery Behind the Mona Lisa

Why is the Mona Lisa so famous? For starters, Mona Lisa’s expression has been well debated since its creation in the 16th Century. Is she happy or sad? Aside from the constant debate, the Mona Lisa is the most insured work of art, cashing in at a whopping $800 million. Be sure to snap a picture of the Mona Lisa or a picture of you trying to mimic her expression and then continue on with your tour to see more of the Louvre’s greatest pieces.

 

Sculptures of the Louvre

Although the Louvre houses thousands of paintings, it is also home to many statues. Two of the more famous statues include the Winged Victory of Samothrace and Venus de Milo. After exploring the statues, be sure to check out some of the museum’s great Greek and Roman antiquities. As you take it all in, your guide will unravel the importance of the mythology and history behind the some of the museum’s exquisite sculptures.

 

Take Your Time and Explore the Collections

After your tour is finished, feel free to walk around the museum or explore your favorite exhibit one more time. If you are continuing your night of fun, be sure to ask your guide about the best places to eat near the Louvre or about local nightlife.

Magical

The Louvre is magical at night. We forgot to save time during the day to visit the Louvre and booked this tour last minute. Worked out perfectly and would choose this tour again!

Louvre Tour

Did the Louvre Tour with Abbey on 19 April. My husband, son and myself were the only ones on the tour as the other two attendees did not show up. Abbey was a great historian and provided us with interesting facts about various pieces in the Louvre. She managed to get us prime position in front of some of the most popular pieces and gave us great advice in dealing with the Mona Lisa "mosh pit". We could not have done the Louvre without a guide and really appreciate the time and effort Abbey took in taking us through. Thank you Abbey and The Paris Guy.

So Unique

What a unique and interesting way to see the Louvre. I was only in Paris for a few days, so trying to cram everything in to that short time span was extremely difficult. The Paris Guy made this tour super easy and convenient for me!
