SKIP-THE-LINE LOUVRE MUSEUM
Skip the infamously atrocious line to the famously massive collection of fine art at the Musée du Louvre. Some of the greatest masterpieces of all time sit within the hallowed halls of what is the largest museum in the world.
Gaze and wonder at the hidden meaning of Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. Stare in amazement at the beauty of Winged Victory. Walk up so close to the Venus de Milo that you could touch her. With approximately 38,000 pieces exhibited daily at the Louvre, it’d be impossible to list them all here. But, with pieces from artists such as Michelangelo, Rembrandt, and Caravaggio, you are sure to find something that inspires you.
Daily except Tuesdays and first Sunday of every month.
