What you can expect

Visiting the Louvre Museum is an incredible experience but it can be tiring and a bit frustrating... what to see and where to go in one of the most word-renewed museums, housing more than 35000 amazing masterpieces from different epochs and countries?

Join me in a fascinating journey through art, history, legends and scandals. We will meet near the breathtaking glass pyramid of the Louvre and enter the museum using the priority tour guide entrance... no need to waste a lot of time for security control! If you do not have tickets I can provide them for you and if you have the Paris Museum Pass you are welcome to use it!

In the Museum I will tell you the incredible history of the building and we will admire the Egyptian Sphinx, the Venus de Milo, the "Nike" of Samothrace, Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa, the Wedding feast of Cana, the paintings by David and Delacroix, Michelangelo's sculptures and many others works of art including the French crown jewels. Didn't you know they are in the Louvre?

At the end of the tour you can stay in the Museum as long as you want to visit the other galleries at your own pace or you can enjoy some shopping the Carrousel du Louvre shopping mall.

Would you like to have information about the area (great restaurants, traditional brasseries, boutiques and famous monuments...) or you want to add a walking tour in the area? Please feel free to ask!

* Entrance fees to the museum (17 Euro per person) are not included in the price; please pay the amount in cash to the host as she will have bought them upfront. If you already have the tickets or you want to use your Paris Museum Pass please do not hesitate to contact the guide before the tour.
** In high season there might be a security check line that cannot be skipped. Using the tour guide entrance, line usually is usually less than 5 minutes.
*** If you want a complete skip the line experience you can buy the new E-tickets on Louvre's website. If you need any assistance in doing it please feel free to contact me!

I am an Italian art historian Parisian by heart. The City of lights conquered me more that 15 years ago, the first time I met “her”. I am passionate about Paris’s history, art, lifestyle, cuisine, fashion… and it would be a great pleasure to share my passion and my knowledge with you. In my tour I love making the past of the city and the monuments live again explaining not only the official history but also little curiosities, legends and traditions about places and people. I always do my best to give my guest the chance to learn something more about the city, to follow unusual paths, to discover the authentic Paris and to live it like a local.

I have a strong historical and artistic background and I have been working in tourism for more than 7 years. I am a qualified French Tour Guide (Carte Professionelle de Guide-Conferencier n. 1475034P) and professional personal shopper."
