This Louvre Museum ticket allows you to skip the lines and explore the galleries housing one of the most famous paintings in the world. After all, who leaves Paris without seeing the Mona Lisa?!
Louvre Museum Ticket
If we had to choose the most visited museum in the world, it would definitely be the Louvre in Paris. Opened in 1793, the iconic gallery receives more than 8 million visitors a year, who come to admire the more than 35,000 works of art inside.
The Musée du Louvre is located in the Louvre Palace, whose 12th-century architecture contrasts magnificently with the glass pyramid built in 1989, which has become one of its symbols.
Have you always dreamed of seeing the Mona Lisa up close? Discover Leonardo da Vinci’s most famous painting alongside the rest of the masterpieces which fill the largest art museum in the world. An unmissable visit!
Skip the Line
One of the main reasons that people visit Paris without getting to see the Louvre Museum are the seemingly endless queues. With this Skip the Line ticket, you’ll access the gallery without having to wait in the ticket office queue.
This ticket is 3 euros more than the standard ticket price. However, reserving this Skip the Line ticket will save you time and guarantee you entry within your desired time slot. During the booking process, we’ll ask you to select your preferred time, and after completing your purchase, we’ll send you your vouchers stating the exact entry time within the selected time slot.
If you'd like, you can book the option that includes an audioguide in English. This allows you to download interesting comments on the main works of the art gallery to your mobile phone or tablet.
