Louvre Abu Dhabi Tour & Lunch in a local restaurant
After breakfast at your hotel, you meet your private driver, who takes you to the Louvre Abu Dhabi, the first universal museum in the Arab world, which was created based on an intergovernmental agreement signed on March 6, 2007, between the United Arab Emirates and France.

The appearance of the structure itself is quite extraordinary, but it reflects the vision and achievements of the whole nation. Built-in 2017, the museum is designed in light colors and has a huge silver floating dome with geometrical ornaments, so when the sun passes above, the light, filtering through the perforations in the dome, creates an inspiring play of light and shadows inside the building.

After your visit to Louvre, you proceed to the Emirates palace (outside) and make a photo stop. Emirates Palace is one of the most remarkable buildings in Abu Dhabi when it comes to architecture. Enjoy your photo stop at Qasr Al Watan. It is the presidential palace of the United Arab Emirates, located in Abu Dhabi.

After such a great experience you have lunch in a local restaurant. 

Your driver takes you back to the hotel.
