What to expect

Leaving from Dubai you will start the tour towards Louvre Museum - a must-see cultural landmark in the capital of UAE. The Louvre Abu Dhabi is both an architectural marvel as well as home to celebrated art collections. This ambitious and innovative project will take you on a journey through chronological and theme-based displays. The exhibition is divided into four macro-areas: ancient age, medieval age, modern age and globalization. The works tell the evolution of human history: from the origins of the species to globalization. Afterwards, you will head to the Sheikh Zayed Mosque which you can also visit inside. The mosque is the largest in the United Arab Emirates and the eighth largest in the world. You will be amazed not only by the size of the mosque, which can accommodate over 40,000 worshippers, but also from its architectural features. It was built with fine white marble and has intricate decorations painted. The mosque takes its name after Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, founder and first President of the United Arab Emirates.
