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, 99 rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris 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.

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
Fabritza (Fab) was an amazing guide, very knowledgeable and she moved us through all of the musts at the Louvre. Couldn’t have asked for a better guide....thank you so much from us Canadians.
Wonderful 3 hour tour. Violet had lots of great information. Definitely worth the money not to stand in line. We did spend a little longer on our own, but saw what we wanted to see on the tour.
Tour guide was very knowledgeable and knows about ins and outs of the Museum.
We are enjoying this very much and will be recommended this tour to our family and friends.
Great place to visit on a rainy or cold day. You can spend hours here. Sign up for a tour and spend time exploring on your own after the tour ends.
Our guide Manuel (Many) was great, he knew a lot, was very funny and made the time fly by, but it was very informative and interesting
My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. We were only in Paris for a short amount of time so knew we would not be able to spend hours on end at the Louvre. This tour hit all the highlights they say you should see plus after the tour you can wander by yourself to see other art that wasn't on the tour. Be warned though, the lines to see the Mona Lisa are long if you are part of a tour or not (the advantage to the tour is you get to ask questions and get information you might not otherwise hear). Our tour guide was wonderful, she was very informative and answered everyone's questions.
Our tour guide, John, was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable about the art we saw and history of the Louvre. I'm giving this an excellent rating because of him. While the Louvre is an impressive museum, the art it houses isn't what I enjoy. As it was my first time in Paris, I had to come here, but I wouldn't do it again. There are better museums in the city, for sure.
Our guide John Edward was incredibly knowledgeable and was able to relate the history with passion and made the tour very interesting!
Our guide was very knowledgeable and conscientious. She kept our large group together and informed on a busy and crowded day. She was wonderful!
The Louve is so big that I couldn’t imagine not doing it tour. Hugo was a great tour guide.... Very passionate about the art and informative!!
