We'll discover the foundations of the medieval Louvre and its secrets, the collection of roman and greek antique sculptures, among which masterpieces such as the Venus de Milo and the Winged Victory of Samothrace. We will also explore the incredible collection of Italian Renaissance paintings, with gothic paintings, masterpieces from Raphaël, Leonardo da Vinci and the famous Mona Lisa.
