We'll discover the foundations of the medieval Louvre and its secrets, the collection of roman and greek antique sculptures, among which masterpieces such as the Venus de Milo and the Winged Victory of Samothrace. We will also explore the incredible collection of Italian Renaissance paintings, with gothic paintings, masterpieces from Raphaël, Leonardo da Vinci and the famous Mona Lisa.

Meet your guide
I'm a French Art Historian and a state licensed guide. Born in a small village on the west coast of France, in a farmer's family, i have studied Art History in Europe's most beautiful cities and i made my way, today, to the big city that is Paris. My knowledge comes from more than 7 years of Art History studies in France and Italy, including getting my Master’s degree at Rome’s University of La Sapienza. While studying in Rome, five years ago, i began my career as a guide, sharing my love for European Art and Art history with tourists and locals. I then came back to France, in order to study for the State's curator exam, while working as an intern in an Art gallery. Through all these experiences, i has realized that i was more interested in teaching, sharing my knowledge and interact with people from all around the world, that's why today giving tours is my full time job, and full time hobby!
