On this day trip to Abu Dhabi, you'll see two of the major monuments in the UAE, the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and the Louvre Museum. Unmissable!

Great Mosque and the Abu Dhabi Louvre Tour Itinerary

We'll pick you up from your hotel and make our way in an air-conditioned bus to the capital of the UAE, Abu Dhabi. Over a 90 minute journey we'll head to the Louvre museum, the first stop on our excursion. This marvel of architecture, with its playful attitude to light and space, is the first museum to carry the Louvre name outside of France.

The museum houses over 600 pieces imported from various continents, among which are works from the French Louvre, the Centre Pompidou, the Orsay Museum, and the Palace of Versailles. Here you'll have free time to get lost in its hallways, see the characteristic artwork from each period from history, and see the "Rain of Light" spectacle.

After this art tour, we'll continue to our next destination, the Sheikh Zayed Great Mosque, one of the largest and most impressive in the world. It can hold up to 40,000 people and its total area, along with the gardens and paths which surround it, is 12 metres in total. You'll have the opportunity to access the inside of the mosque and admire the mixture of Islamic and modern artwork inside.

The tour returns to Dunai at around 4 pm.
