Equipped with headsets, hear your enthusiastic and knowledgable guide loud and clear so you won't miss a thing! Admire the art up close such as the Venus de Milo, Mona Lisa, Michelangelo’s Slaves, and more.

Then, visit Les Caves du Louvre Elegant Cellars and go on a unique sensory journey. A sommelier will guide you through this authentic Parisian experience. Go through its 650 square meters of vaulted cellars separated into different museum rooms while your sommelier gives you a glimpse of how its quality wine is produced.

First up, let your eyes wander and soak in the absolutely unique atmosphere of The Winery, home to barrels containing wines made from 15 different grape varieties that are on display. Then, head to The Terroirs Room and engage with your sense of touch to learn about the importance of the soil for producing quality wine. Then breathe in the scents that The Aromas Room gives you. Let your olfactory sense take in the breathtaking nest of wood and wine. By the end of your journey through Les Caves du Louvre, you'll learn about the entire process including aging, bottling and down to labeling.

And after getting a deeper appreciation of the whole winemaking process, enjoy 3 glasses of local wines paired with local cheeses and charcuterie. Take in the 18th-century vibe of The Tasting Bar, one of Les Caves du Louvre's many rooms.
