Mona Lisa's Smile
Why is Mona Lisa’s smile so mysterious? Is she happy or sad? Leonardo da Vinci’s famous portrait of Lisa Gherardini, titled Mona Lisa, is arguably the most famous painting in the world. The masterpiece also holds a Guinness World Record-breaking insurance policy for approximately $800,000,000! Our guide can't wait to share the stories behind the acclaimed painting, and the fascination with the woman it depicts. Leonardo da Vinci was a true genius who left behind a huge legacy in both science and art. Besides the Mona Lisa, Leonardo has plenty other paintings housed at the Louvre.
The Louvre is also home to thousands of sculptures. One of the most well-known is the Venus de Milo. Standing 6'8" tall, the Venus de Milo represents the feminine beauty ideal. Discovered in 1820 on the Greek Island of Milos, the statue depicts the Greek goddess of love and beauty. Another highlight in the Louvre is the Winged Victory of Samothrace, a marble Hellenistic sculpture of Nike (the Greek goddess of victory). Created in the 2nd century B.C. (or thereabouts), the statue is one of the most celebrated in the world. These incredible ancient sculptures only represent a fraction of the Greek and Roman antiquities at the Louvre.
The French Royal Family
The Louvre is a former royal palace. Given that the Louvre has such a strong link to royalty, it only makes sense to visit France’s Crown Jewels. On display in the Louvre’s Galerie d'Apollon, the surviving French Crown Jewels were worn by the kings and queens of France. At each new Coronation, an extravagant custom crown was created. As you admire the prized items, learn about the history of French royalty

Z was our guide, he was very knowledgeable and made the history of the building and art work very interesting. We were trilled when we found out we would have Z. He was very patient with my 75 year old mother and never made us feel like we were holding the group back. Awesome tour!
Thanks for the experience!
MaryAnn led us through this amazingly huge museum to see the unique artifacts and beautiful artwork, sharing insights throughout. There’s so much interesting history about the building and the invaluable pieces within. The tour was efficient and still thorough. Thanks for this unique experience. Highly recommended!
Z was an amazing tour guide! Without a tour guide, we never would have known where to start or which specific pieces to look at. Being an artist himself, Z was able to give us specific information about the various art pieces we viewed in the tour. This tour was the perfect length and we really appreciated the assistance of a guide while in the Louvre.
