Look up whilst in the Louvre - many of the most impressive sights are on the ceilings. Go see the Mona Lisa if you must but you won't get a chance to properly look at it because of crowds of tourists taking pictures of it. Go see other wonderful artwork and take your time over looking at them.

World class museum that you can't pay justice to in one day. I don't know whst I liked the best, the art or the French architecture.

This place is enormous. I can see why the people revolted. King thought it wasn't big enough?! Great place to visit but you definitely need days to see it all.

stopped in on a whim after dinner one night, while it was open late (until 10pm). the perfect time to visit. not only is it pure magic, walking upon the louvre with the eiffel tower to your right, sparkling in the distance, but the experience itself - walking right in (no lines) to see miss mona lisa; so special.

As we all know this is an amazing place. We got there as there was a massive queue, as usual, but hey, it's worth it. Once you're in, and if you appreciate art, this is the place to be. Inside the building everything went really smoothly, and we noticed there were many security officers and police, Well done. We had... More

Sure everyone knows the Louvre has fantastic art. But there is so much of it, that the size of the collection ruins the experience. And so many people. Enjoyed the Napoleon rooms and the basement wall rooms which had little to no people. But the paintings section near the Mona Lisa, and the Mona Lisa room were just packed with... More

The Greek statues were the highlight for me. Unfortunately the Egyptian wing was closed for our visit. I enjoyed the Impressionist Painting as Orsay so much more than the Louvre's thousands of paintings depicting Kings, war, and Jesus. Quite honestly it all got a bit redundant. Glad to see the Mona Lisa. Very very very crowded.

The Louvre is huge and a work of art in and of itself -- so here are a few tips to help make it a better experience. 1) Time it well. We were in Paris for 2 weeks, and went each week on Wednesday evening. There was a very short security line, almost no ticket line, and it was much... More

We are not museum goers by any means but this museum was simply beautiful. From it's own amazing architecture to the art collections, there was always something to photograph. We paid extra to get the audio guide. It comes on a Nintendo DS. We thought it would be fun for our 6 year old son to follow one of the... More

Attracted to the France and ancient Greece sculptures.. If you go through all hall without taking photos U can finish in few hours, otherwise might spend a whole day. Also if you are under 26 living in EU countries, you can visit for free. Inside from information desk you can find a map broshure in many languages. Dont worry for... More
