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.

TripAdvisor's Customer Reviews
Our guide, Carolina was excellent and greatly added to our visit to the Louvre. If you are planning only one visit to the Louvre, I strongly recommend this guided tour. The Louvre's must see attractions are scattered throughout the huge museum and without a guide, you will waste a lot of time searching for them. And when you do find them, a guide gives you the back story behind each of them so you will have more than a picture for your experience.
In reality, our 3 hour tour only covered some of the museum's highlights. After the tour, we spent an additional 5 hours seeing other attractions such as Napoleon III Apartments and the Egyptian Collection.
I don't know if this applies to all guided tours but our admission ticket did NOT allow us to re-enter the museum if we had exited it. If you want to see more than just the highlights, choose the early morning tour. After the tour, you can grab something to eat in a museum cafe and then see as many of the Louvre's other attractions as your energy allows.
Sadly, as I write this, I see that the museum is closed due to the Coronavirus crisis. I feel fortunate to be able to visit it before everything shutdown. When things return to normal, I hope you take the opportunity to visit one of the world's greatest museums.
Tina was the best... So entertaining and knowledgeable!!! Perfect guide for us, perfect experience..
The guide was excellent. John Edwards (our guide) is a historian and someone that provides stories and great details.
This is our 2nd time doing this tour. We missed the 1st one 2 years ago and did the tour ourselves which was so useless because everything was in french and audio was so confusing. We decided to sign up again this time. We loved Violet ( tour guide). She answered our questions, She knows the history very well. I liked how she went into details of the paintings and sculptures. She organized the presentation from how the museum started. We were well informed on the highlights of the museum from Venus de Milo to Monalisa ( Monna Lisa). She kept my 7 year old son engaged with some tasking which turned out to be more fun and not boring to him. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻. I would recommend Violet to my friends.
Awesome guide. Very knowledgeable with some some humor. He shows passion about what he does and shares it with client. Thanks
Tina was wonderful! She was very funny and knowledgeable and friendly. We
Really enjoyed our tour! And learn lots!
We had a great guided tour led by John Edward. He was extremely knowledgeable about the museum, the pieces he showcased and art history in general. Just a fantastic experience.
Alex our guide was outstanding! He was very knowledgeable and informed. He brought a real sense of humor to the tour and was very personable. We really enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend to anyone who has an interest in art and would like a tour guide who keeps it relevant for everyone whatever their level of knowledge.
The tour guide was wonderful and an expert at explaining the history and main highlights of the Louvre. This was truly a highlight on our Paris trip and would highly recommend.
Guide Alex was superb! Extremely knowledgeable, gracious, accommodating and just the right amount of humor. Can’t imagine visiting such a large and overwhelming museum without some guidance and direction. Alex’s tour was the highlight of our three days in Paris on the way to Provence.
