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.

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.

We paid for a Louvre “Skip The Line Tour” but our confirmation from Paris Info was not real clear about meeting at the Paris City Vision office. To be clear, Paris Info is the booking company while Paris City Vision provides the tours. When we...More

Do NOT USE THIS TOUR-get the audio tour from the Louvre itself

The equipment worked well, but the maps and process to identify the artwork was impossible to follow. The company gave inadequate instructions for where to start the tour--it was incredibly frustrating and certainly diminished our enjoyment of this incredible museum.
