All about the trip
The day will begin with our driver picking you up from your hotel in Dubai, then they will make the way to Abu Dhabi. The first stop on the tour will be to the stunning Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. The view of the Grand Mosque showcases the cultural diversity of Islam with modern architecture, encompassing all aspects of the religion. Sivec marble, from North Macedonia, was chosen to encase the Grand Mosque, hence its brilliant white surface. The mosque accommodates thousands of worshippers at a time, which is a sight to behold during Islamic festivals. The entire structure took eleven years to complete and covers over 30 acres of land. From floor to ceiling there is always something to gaze at, most notably the largest handwoven carpet in the world, measuring around 60,570 sq ft. And above your head, you'll see the third largest chandelier in the world, studded with Swarovski crystals, which adorns the main hall. You'll also witness verses of the Holy Quran in beautiful Arabic calligraphy throughout the mosque. The Sheikh Zayed Mosque is grand in every sense of the word! After an hour and a half of exploration, it will be time to tour the Louvre Abu Dhabi.
The Louvre Abu Dhabi is a one of a kind museum, that has an agreement with the French government for a 30-year agreement to work in conjunction with tourism development. This museum is the largest in the Arab world and houses artefacts from all over the world. As you enter the museum, the silver dome casts the warm rays of the sunlight throughout the entire room. The museum has artefacts from top french museums such as the Louvre, Center Georges Pompidou, Palace of Versailles, and Musee d’Orsay! The tour takes you from ancient civilization to present, you can spend an entire day here and never become bored! After a day of exploration at the two top sights in Abu Dhabi, your guide will take you back to your hotel in Dubai.Louvre Abu Dhabi Wikipedia
