Photos are allowed and encouraged during the tour. However, many pieces, including the Mona Lisa, have strict regulations which prohibit the use of flash photography.

Our meeting point is the statue of Louis XIV on horseback in front of the Louvre Pyramid entrance. The nearest address is 10 Place du Carrousel. The closest Metro station is Palais Royal Musee du Louvre on Line 1 and 7. It’s about a five-minute walk to the meeting point from the Metro.

Where does this tour end?
