It took over 800 years for the Louvre to become the great Museum it is today, so why rush?
Instead of following the crowd to end up lost in the 9 miles of corridors of the Louvre, or having a tour based on just 3 famous artworks, why not having a genuine tailored visit and choose amongst over 38,000 artworks displayed at the Louvre with our private tour?.
