Have a private guide for a day and take in the best of the heart of Paris! The guided tour of the must-see Louvre Museum will be followed by the sumptuous Notre Dame Cathedral and a walking tour of the evocative surrounding Cité Island and St Louis Island.
You will enjoy a 2-hour guided tour of the Louvre museum, from the ancient Greek art to the 18th-century paintings, through the Italian primitives, Renaissance paintings and European art pieces from the 16th and 17th centuries. You will see masterpieces such as the Milo's Venus, the Winged Victory of Samothrace, and La Joconde. Your private guide will be able to customize the tour to your convenience.
Then, you will have a walk to join the area of Notre Dame and take a lunch pause in between. The richly carved facades of Notre Dame will be commented, as well as the history of that gothic masterpiece. An indoor tour will be offered only if the affluence allows.
The origins of Paris in the ancient times are at that very place, and your guide will present that neighborhood nested on Cité Island, the very heart of Paris. You will then stroll towards St. Louis Island, the neighboring island. Its buildings, more recent, date from the 17th century and present a remarkable unity. The walk offers beautiful river and architectural views.
