Louvre Crash Course
Meet your guide and art historian at the Louvre and receive a brief introduction to the famous museum that was once the palatial home to French royalty. Begin your journey through the history of art in the antiquities department where you'll discover the earliest forms of art and culture from thousands of years of civilization. Marvel at the transcendent beauty of the Greek and Roman sculptures as you gaze upon the famed Nike of Samothrace and the Venus de Milo. Progress into the galleries of the Italian masters and see the iconic works of Leonardo di Vinci and Veronese. As your tour nears the end you'll visit the works of David and Delacroix in the French painting galleries and discuss the competing art movements of Neoclassicism and Romanticism.
