A new private tour makes it possible to have the Louvre in Paris all to yourself. A very attractive option, since the famous art gallery is the most visited museum in the world and attracted a record number of 10.2 million visitors in 2018.

The home of masterpieces such as the Mona Lisa from Leonardo da Vinci, is always very busy. The recent heat wave has not improved the situation because the cool museum rooms are extra attractive for overheated visitors. To prevent overcrowding, the art gallery encourages travelers to book visits online and plans to implement a mandatory booking system later this year to handle the large number of visitors.

If you want to avoid the crowds altogether, True Luxury Travel has introduced a brand new private tour through the Louvre, allowing visitors to explore the museum without any other audience. Participants are shown around the gallery by a qualified qualified guide and art historian during the three-hour tour. It is possible to adapt the tour to areas of interest and any language. It is offered every day, except during public holidays, and subject to availability.
