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.

Stop At: Louvre Museum, Paris, Ile-de-France
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. Enjoy fast access to the museum with your skip-the-line pass and begin your tour through the massive venue, home to over 35,000 works of art spanning more than 73,000 square meters of exhibition space. 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. (See full sample list below.) With your small group (limited to 25 people), engage in lively chats with your guide and hear entertaining anecdotes, trivia and history. Afterward, spend as much time as you like exploring the museum independently. Please Note: Evening tours are limited to Wednesdays and Fridays at 6:30pm. For an extra unique experience, book an evening session and wind through the quiet corridors at night, when the crowds are gone, and the artwork is basked in soft light.

TripAdvisor's Customer Reviews
Tour guide was like an art historian. He was wonderful engaging I kept everyone interested and in awe,
We only had a day in Paris on our way to Monaco and the Louve was the only place I HAD to go. Not wanting to wait hours in line and then wander around “aimlessly”, I looked at the various tours when I saw “skip the line and see the Mona Lisa” and knew this was exactly what would work! We had the best tour guide with Carolina who was very knowledgeable, easy to understand and really cared about keeping our group together.
First time I have done a museum tour. It was really great. So much more interesting than walking around a museum trying to figure out what you are looking at. Guide really knew her stuff. Definitely recommend!
As described, well worth while especially on busy days. Good information on Museum and art works. the Louvre is an amazing place for sure.
This was our first visit to the Louvre. The museum is overwhelming! I can’t imagine doing it without a guide! Our guide was incredible! She has a love and appreciation for art which made the tour both interesting and educational!!!!! Highly recommend!!!!
She was great and so was the tour - what a place! The tour start was easy to find and the access well worth it
Ruben was very informative and knowledgeable about the works of art we saw. In a short time he gave us great insight into the sites we were most interested in seeing
He was efficient with our time as well as we did not have much extra time
The tour guide was outstanding. She met us as described in the literature and spent a full 3 hours guiding us through the Louvre. She provided excellent background information and presented the tour group with a variety of experiences that included fine art, sculpture, decorative arts, and furniture. An excellent introduction to the Louvre. The guides English was excellent, she was very friendly, and encouraged questions to make the experience more personal. I highly recommend this tour!
Outstanding! Our guide was not only very knowledgeable, but fun to listen to. She provided theories, and anecdotes for the amazing pieces we saw. We avoided very long lines and she knew where the "secret" bathrooms were along the way.
I highly recommend this guided tour. They hit all the high points giving you more detail and making the museum that much better! The size of the museum can be intimidating to a tourist but this tour ensures you don’t miss anything and meets you outside to get you on the right track from the start
