The Louvre was initially a medieval fortress and it protected the French capital during the reign of King Philippe Auguste(1190-1202). It was until the second half of the 14th century that King Charles V made it its home and the Louvre Palace was born. After the fall of the French Monarchy the building's purpose changed and it became the nation's art collection in 1793 home to unique masterpieces such as the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo.
Your private guide will conduct you through the main departments of the Louvre museum, so you don't miss the most important pieces of the Egyptian collection, which is one of the most extensive in the world, as well as the Roman or Greek Antiquities.
