Mona Lisa's Smile
Why is Mona Lisa’s smile so mysterious? Is she happy or sad? Leonardo da Vinci’s famous portrait of Lisa Gherardini, titled Mona Lisa, is arguably the most famous painting in the world. The masterpiece also holds a Guinness World Record-breaking insurance policy for approximately $800,000,000! Our guide can't wait to share the stories behind the acclaimed painting, and the fascination with the woman it depicts. Leonardo da Vinci was a true genius who left behind a huge legacy in both science and art. Besides the Mona Lisa, Leonardo has plenty other paintings housed at the Louvre.
The Louvre is also home to thousands of sculptures. One of the most well-known is the Venus de Milo. Standing 6'8" tall, the Venus de Milo represents the feminine beauty ideal. Discovered in 1820 on the Greek Island of Milos, the statue depicts the Greek goddess of love and beauty. Another highlight in the Louvre is the Winged Victory of Samothrace, a marble Hellenistic sculpture of Nike (the Greek goddess of victory). Created in the 2nd century B.C. (or thereabouts), the statue is one of the most celebrated in the world. These incredible ancient sculptures only represent a fraction of the Greek and Roman antiquities at the Louvre.
The French Royal Family
The Louvre is a former royal palace. Given that the Louvre has such a strong link to royalty, it only makes sense to visit France’s Crown Jewels. On display in the Louvre’s Galerie d'Apollon, the surviving French Crown Jewels were worn by the kings and queens of France. At each new Coronation, an extravagant custom crown was created. As you admire the prized items, learn about the history of French royalty

Will Was the best guide we have ever experienced. His knowledge was outstanding and his attitude was exemplary. It was the best part of our Paris vacation. Words cannot express our emotions of gratitude.
Private Louvre Tour
The tour was great. Our tour guide was lovely and provided us with so much information about the history of the Louvre as well as the pieces inside the museum. However, I can not give the tour full marks as we were disappointed that our scheduled start time of 9 am was changed without explanation to 3:15 pm. With that late of a start it was difficult to get in the full experience prior to the museum closing at 6 pm.
We had an amazing tour of the Louvre with Veronique. She shared so much history with us and made the tour entertaining for us and our kids.
