The Louvre is one of the world’s largest and most popular museums, which means big crowds and long lines. However, this tour’s skip-the-line access lets you walk right in. With a map and an audio guide for company, embark on an independent exploration of its galleries. See the Louvre’s major masterpieces, learn the stories behind the works, and explore at your leisure. Upgrade to add on a 1-day bus tour ticket.

What to Expect

Your tour begins in central Paris (at a location adjacent to the Louvre), when you pick up your passes, museum map, and audio guide. Your priority-access ticket lets you skip the line and head into the museum.

Once inside, you have the freedom to explore independently; your map suggests several possible itineraries, and your audio guide (available in nine languages) will provide more information about the Louvre and the many thousands of works on display within its walls.

Find your way to the museum’s major masterpieces, including Venus de Milo, Mona Lisa, The Coronation of Napoleon, and more. While the audio tour lasts for several hours, you are free to continue exploring the museum at your leisure.

An optional tour upgrade also includes a 1-day Paris bus tour pass.

The tour ends when you return your audio guide to your original point of departure.

Good Quick Tour

You get a little hand-held pen and a map; when you tap the pen to the map, your audio tour starts. Its a bit difficult to find each of the paintings they are referencing due to the crowds, but a good overall brief history tour....More

This is a scandal. What you receive is a voucher. One has to waste hours standing in line (!) and suffer horrible abuse from agents to obtain the actual ticket. DO NOT USE. Look for “Dedicated Entrance” through other companies.

Don’t know but avoid this. It’s extremely inefficient and upsetting to try to get tickets.

About a 10 minute walk. Not too bad
