Skip the Line - Closing Time with the Mona Lisa
  • Skip the Line - Closing Time with the Mona Lisa

    The best way to see the Mona Lisa is without the crowds that almost always surround her. Because there is no way to get her all to yourself, we’ve done the next best thing: As the museum starts to close and everyone else rushes for the doors, we take advantage of the natural thinning of crowds. Entering at this time, you’ll find the room almost totally empty so you can get up close to the great lady for a peaceful 20 minute visit with your guide. Of course you’ll see the best of the rest too. You’ll spend 3 hours viewing the very best artwork in the Louvre with an art historian, learning what makes these masterpieces so world-renowned.



    Itinerary
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Louvre Museum, 99 rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris France

    As one of the world’s most famous paintings, the Mona Lisa rarely gets much peace. During regular visiting hours she is almost constantly mobbed by hundreds of people, severely compromising any time you get to spend with her. In order to avoid the crowds, we’ll take you to see her after most visitors have left and give you plenty of space to enjoy her beauty.

    Tested and perfected through countless research trips, your itinerary inverts the normal Louvre route allowing you to see much more than other visitors who are on the normal tours that try to fit the rest of the museum into 1.5 hours.

    During the tour, your guide will show you the Louvre’s most treasured sights, including the historic foundations of the Kings’ palace moat, Greek and Roman sculptures like the ‘Venus de Milo’, ‘Cupid & Psyche’, and Michelangelo’s ‘Slaves’; and many of the greatest works ever created by French artists such as ‘Liberty Leading the People’ by Delacroix and ‘The Raft of Medusa’ by Géricault. You’ll also see France’s old crown jewels, the world famous ‘Winged Victory’ monument, and works from Italian painters like Caravaggio, Raphael, and da Vinci.

    There are many ways to see the Louvre, but only one way shows you all the best works and gets you in front of the Mona Lisa after most of the crowds have left. Your guide takes care of all the time and logistics so all you have to do is enjoy the art.

      Great tour with good information. Violet shares details and information, but not so much that you get bored. We learned many new things and enjoyed all the exhibits that were highlighted. This tour was well worth purchasing.

      Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. He gave us insights and perspectives that gave us the opportunity to think differently about our experience at the Louvre and about seeing the Mona Lisa. It was not overly crowded thanks to the time of year. We recommend lunch at the Marley cafe before the tour.

      This museum is fantastic. So much history. Long lines to see the Mona Lisa, however glad we did it but would spend more time to view the others great masterpieces instead of standing in line for an hour. The three hour visit was over so quickly. We saw a lot in such a short period of time thanks to our great guide. She was the "best". Knowledgeable and well versed in art history. Unbelievable qualifications for such a nice young lady. I highly recommend this tour.

      This is the best way to start exploring the Louvre. We have been dreaming of visiting for years and we were not disappointed. Our guide was excellent and gave us great information on the history of the Louvre and the art inside. Avie (not sure if I am spelling this correct) gave us information that was relevant to the novice and those with art backgrounds. Our tour was a small group at the end of the day which allows you to really get a good view of the stunning collections. We highly recommend.

      The louvre can be extremely overwhelming and confusing. Our guide took us through all the highlights of the museum. Going in the evening was amazing, less crowds, by the time we finished at the Mona Lisa we were the only people there!!! Our guide was fantastic and our group small. This was the best way to see the museum!

      Our tour guide was so amazing. We planned on staying with the tour for an hour, see the Mona Lisa and go eat. It was a three hour tour and was over before we knew it. he was so cute and animated. made history come alive. Even my wife who does not like museums enjoyed it. That is saying a lot! Plus in the end we had the Mona Lisa almost to ourselves after 9:30 pm. Selfies and all.!

      What an amazing experience. Violette was an amazing tour guide. She very knowledgeable and passionate about the art and History of the Louvre. Her explanation of the works was outstanding and there wasn't anything I asked she didn't know. The tour is a highlight tour and 3 hours is definitely not enough time for the whole museum. But we received a crash course in art history for all the main pieces of art and have really come out of the experience with an amazing and knowledge filled appreciation for the Palace. The room for the Mona Lisa at the end had maybe 20 people in it and it was really a nice finish the tour.

      Our guide Lilly was engaging . She entertained and educated us by giving modern comparisons and history that really helped our children to put things into context they understood. They learned while not knowing they were being taught it was a wonderful experience. Also well timed to get to the monilia a at the last moment.

      A 'must do' location while in Paris, this place is massive beyond belief. We were excited to have a guide to help us get oriented as well as the skip-the-line nature saved at least an hour!. Josephine was brilliant, fun, delightfully pleasant and just a wonderful tour guide. She memorized every name of our small group - about 12 of us in just one effort. She then took us on a not-rushed, full of information tour with plenty of time at the key exhibits. Finally we ended with the Mona Lisa. The room is huge, the painting relatively small. Normally it is packed but with the timing here we spent about 15 minutes right at the front rail with no pushing, shoving or other hand-to-hand combat. Easy to look at her, take a family photo or even a selfie! Strongly recommend this tour and do your best to get Josephine Napolean's ex wife! as your guide - she was just brilliant!

      The tour guide was very knowledgeable. She was pleasant and friendly. But I felt the tour could have included more artefacts instead of just six. And it was very expensive for what it was. Any way not a bad experience.

      On the day I went arriving late in the day provided little benefit. We did not see the Mona Lisa with a small group though I did get close. She is an amazing lady. The museum was packed, hot and noisy which made listening to the guide difficult. Our guide was very knowledgeable, helpful and pleasant. We were a small group which helped some with the crowds. I learned a great deal without being overwhelmed by information. It was good value for money but my advice would be to skip the Louvre on very hot days if you are there to enjoy the art.

      Guide took way too much time chit-chatting and we did not get to see much of the museum at all. Our time at the Mona Lisa was very limited and we were shuffled out of the museum at closing time. The ONLY benefit of this tour is the skip the line entry.
