About the tour

The Musée du Louvre, one of the biggest museums in the world, is home to some of the most prized Italian Renaissance paintings. From the spectacular Wedding in Cana by Veronese to exquisite sculptures by Michelangelo and Donatello, the Louvre can leave you spellbound. The most famous masterpiece in the museum, Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, is the crowning glory of this collection. Arguably one of the most famous paintings in the world, the Mona Lisa needs no introduction for your Louvre bucket list. It’s wooed huge crowds and sensational headlines for centuries, and the smiling lady is one of the show-stealers you shouldn’t miss (snap a postcard while you’re at it!) In this virtual tour of the Louvre, you'll get to see world-famous masterpieces and discover Italian sculptures and paintings with Patrick. WARNING : The signal may fluctuate, so it may get blurry as we move from one piece of art to another. COVID restrictions are always evolving, so if a room is unavailable, the guide will show a similar one. Since it's a museum, an art piece may be removed for lending to an exhibition or for renovation. In that case, the guide will adapt to show you another masterpiece. Don't worry! There are more than 35,000 pieces of art in the Louvre that span centuries (the oldest is over 9,000 years old!), so we will always have a new masterpiece to discover.

Meet Patrick Herpe

Patrick Herpe

Patrick isn't one to shy away from travel and adventure. "I was lucky enough to travel the world with my job, discover different cultures, and meet incredible people!" he says, after having explored multiple cities across Europe and Asia. On his tours, you may catch more than a surprise or two about Paris. "In fact, it is an everyday experience. I'm a native Parisian, but every day, I continue to discover new things, new secrets about Paris. It's a never-ending story," he laughs. It was his love for Paris that led him to become a guide. "I'm a father and a teacher, and I realized that my passion was to share my knowledge, so I decided to be a guide about one of my passion: Paris!" Patrick chips in. "I enjoy sharing the love and passion I have for my own city, Paris. Its monuments, its history, its gastronomy, its culture, and all of its little secrets. I can't wait to share all of these with you!" "At the end of my tour I always give a virtual bise - two in fact being a good Parisian!" he laughs.

Always a great pleasure. Patrick provides terrific art appreciation and art history commentary. To see great art in Louvre could be a bucket list desire. Luckily, I have been there in real life albeit years ago. Still Patrick was able to show new and unknown aspects of well known, famous masterpieces. Thank you so much!
