This place is amazing! The exhibits and artwork are simply breathtaking, and it just goes on and on. We spent nearly 6 hours here and probably got round a third of it. I'd definitely recommend seeing some of the less famous exhibits first as it tends to be quieter an they're no less fascinating. I particularly enjoyed the Egyptian antiquities... More

If you're interested in art in the least, no trip to Paris is complete without at least one trip to Musee du Louvre. In addition to the classics Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo the sheer amount of art contained within is staggering and worth seeing. Planning the trip is important with an overarching recommendation to buy a multi-day museum... More

I liked the paintings but got lost at times.It is a bit confusing. Although the rest of the paintings are just the regular ones.

This was obviously a must-visit part of our tour in Paris but I wasn't prepared for how incredibly large this facility is. Easily accessible by train (you literally don't even have to exit the train station, the Louvre is the train station). The place is immense so bring good walking shoes and some snacks. We saw great works by the... More

We went to La Louvre because when you go to Paris for the first time, you must. But it was so crowded and so hot inside, that the visit was not very fun. I'm glad I got to see the major pieces, but I much prefer the Musee d'Orsay.

The Louvre is tremendous, so much art to see inside and outside. I would recommend buying tickets before you get there so you can just walk in, lines are long if you haven't bought a ticket. Wear some good walking shoes, it's a lot to see it definitely worth it.

I do not think I will ever have enough of this place. Paris is one of my favored destination and I traveled there several times. Each time the Louvre was on the top of my list. I have to spent most of the day inside to enjoy all the art and a few hours in the neighbor around there. There... More

What to try and see in two hours in a museum where you could easily spend two days? It's not easy to decide.Also, to save time queueing, you should look into buying tickets in advance. In the wing housing La Joconde there is an awful lot of religious art, a good deal of it Italian. After a quick look at... More
