Remember there are five da Vinca paintings other than the Mona Lisa and almost nobody is looking at them. Some are arguably better than the Mona Lisa. Check them out! Also purchase your ticket in advance online. The line is much shorter for those with tickets in hand. In addition, there are other entrances besides the Pyramid. The Louvre is... More

Plan hours if not two days to see everything the Louvre has to offer. It was everything and more than we expected. If I had a negative to write it would be the map is confusing and it is difficult to navigate as a result. Spend the extra few euro and get the guided tour head sets. Makes all the... More

We didn't realize the closing time and didn't have enough time to see everything. Lots of stairs but elevators if you need it. Yes, we saw Mona Lisa! The sculptures were amazing so much to see; plan to be amazed at the mural artwork! Sit on a bench and absorb the lasting beauty of so many artists!!

Although the museum is large and over whelming It is best to plan out what you are interested in see that first. Expect lots of walking and stair climbing.

You can end up spending a lot of time here so if you are on a less time trip set an alarm to get out of this place because this place is too huge!! It's and ideal place for art lovers if you're not just track where the famous Mona Lisa is and check out any other section that might... More

I have never seen such a huge collection of art paintings, sculptures and everything pertaining to art! Must see for all art fanatics! Line is a little long and the place can get quite packed at times but it's all worth it. Plus you can walk outside and hang out in the park which is also really beautiful. DO NOT... More

This is a place I would return to alone, with friends or family. The trick is to use the ticket machines (although they didn't accept American Express or foreign cards at that time) to avoid the lines. One of the secret entrances was closed on that day but luckily, I was able to use my French credit card to buy... More
