Il treno partiva alle ore 08:30 dalla stazione di Campo Di Marte, a Firenze. Appena la sera prima avevo salutato mio fratello e finito di sistemare lo zaino da 65L per l'avventura che mi stava aspettando. Ero "pronto". La notte era passata velocemente... come se non avessi dormito. Io, ed i miei genitori, arriviamo in stazione alle 8 puntuali, attraversando Firenze in uno dei pochi (e violenti) temporali estivi.

Your 3-hour journey through some of the world’s great artistic treasures begins at the Arc du Carrousel, next to the Louvre entrance. Choose a morning, afternoon or evening tour and meet your English-speaking guide.

Your entrance pass also provides complimentary audio headsets. Wander the diverse exhibitions, starting with the Ancient Greek Parthenon, followed by the iconic Venus de Milo. While in the ancient antiquities’ gallery, view the celebrated Winged Victory of Samothrace. Then head to the Apollo Gallery to see the opulent royal crowns of Napoleon and King Louis XV. Get a taste of the French Revolution with Delacroix’s painting Liberty Leading the People and take in the Italian Renaissance as you gaze at the work of Michelangelo and Da Vinci's Mona Lisa.

TripAdvisor's Customer Reviews
We had a great time at the Louvre. It was very busy so it was great to have a guide that not only shared her wealth of knowledge but also could get us around the museum to see the things we wanted to see in a shorter amount of time!
Ina was an excellent and informative guide. We learnt so much about different artworks and different techniques that the artists used. The history of Le Louvre was fascinating too! Thank you :)
Our guide, John from England was fantastic! Extremely knowledgeable, informative, and friendly! He told us interesting stories about the artwork as well as a the Louvre! I would request John for future tours!
I will recommend this tour especially with Fabrica. She was amazing with the kids in our group. My 8 year old son was so engaged and asked alot of questions. This was surprising to us knowing him. Other families were surprised as well how their kids were engaged as well. Thank you Fab for keeping all of us engaged . We visited Emma restuarant in Rome as Fab recommended. Emma did the disappoint. The food and ambiance great. Tiramisu the best. I highly recommend Fab as a tour guide.
This was a fantastic tour. Our guide Nev was very knowledgeable and accommodating She was considerate of the older members of the group that needed a slower pace.
Our guide was excellent and imparted many interesting facts about the art we saw. The Louvre is awash with huge crowds. If you have issues with claustrophobia, I wouldn’t brave the chaos. But it IS The Louvre and worth the hordes of people. I’ve been before and I’ll go again the next time I come to Paris!
Tour guide was knowledgeable and full of energy. Really kind and made sure to check in with all the guests periodically.
The Louvre is huge! But our guide Fabrizia was great and took us to the main attractions. I went with my husband and two sons (10 yr old and 22 yr old). They didn't want to stay once the tour was over to see other exhibits so I was happy Fab took us to see the "superstars". Fab was super knowledgeable and friendly. Glad we did this tour but can't wait to go back without the kids.
Thank you to Anna and Françoise for her enthusiasm patience and passion for an amazingly informative tour of Le Louvre
We had a great time during our Skip the Line tour at the Louvre. Our guide, Alistair, was the best! We met, on time, under the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel with several people from City Wonders.
First, it was really skip-the-line. With that endless line up that we're able to skip, we've save a lot of time. Then, Alistair was quick enough to decide that we'll visit the Mona Lisa first, and true enough, the line wasn't that bad and we're able to see the Mona Lisa ... up close! Alistair's knowledge of history is amazing and he's telling everything from memory and his sense of humor was excellent! It was a great experience overall. We surely recommend this trip.
