Visit The Louvre with Go City®

  • This attraction is extremely popular and gets booked up fast. If this is one of your must-sees, please reserve your spot as soon as possible!
  • A tour of the area surrounding the Louvre with an expert guide.
  • A skip-the-line ticket for museum admission after the tour.

One of the most fascinating and photogenic spots in central Paris, this tour is a great starting point for exploring the area and learning the history of the Louvre. 

Whether you know it as the home of the Mona Lisa, for being a filming location in many blockbuster movies (anyone else tempted to rewatch the Da Vince Code?), or for its historical significance, there's no denying that the Louvre is a must-see attraction during your stay in the French capital. The surrounding courtyard is like a museum of its own, making this walking tour a must before heading into the museum itself. 

Originally a royal palace for French kings, in the 16th and 17th Centuries, The Louvre became an art museum when the French king Louis XVI moved his residence to Versailles. The museum is now the most visited in the world, and its surroundings are equally interesting and historically significant. On this tour, you'll meet your guide at the famous Louvre Pyramid, where you'll start your guided journey through time. Taking in the Tuileries Gardens, the Cour Carree and more, as your guide explains to you the cultural importance of the Louvre, as well as its relation to many of the other nearby landmarks including the Arc de Triomphe, Axe Historique and the Cour Napoleon.
