There aren't many things that scream "Paris" more than the Louvre. This is the granddaddy of all art museums and is a must-see for any art lover's bucket list. Yes, it's crowded and yes, it's expensive but yes, it's worth it.

Fascinating, a must see, all the arts of Paris, to see the mona lisa & the grand sphinx was brilliant, we spent about 2 hours which was enough for us but you could spend a day in there if you wanted.

I'm sorry I cannot remember our Guide's name but she was excellent. It was what I was hoping for, besides seeing all the famous works of art she also showed us some other and told us why they were considered great works of art. Such as color, faces, etc. Also she showed us one work that is a copy of... More

The history of the building, the art within it, a most remarkable experience. We had a guide for our grandchildren so we were able to avoid the very long lines. Suggest early arrival

The tour in the evening was GREAT! The crowd was very small. I can't recommend this enough. What a great way to visit this beautiful museum.

If you love art this is the place to visit, but make sure you have a free map. The place is a Labyrinth. You can easily overload on art !!!!

I don't know what else to say. It was everything I expected and more. I spent the good part of a day here - and I believe I was able to see everything - but there is so much to see that I am sure I overlooked something. I guess I will just have to return!

We went here on Good Friday and found that it was much too busy. There were school groups everywhere and thousands of tourists. We found Mona Lisa but the crowd in front of her was at least ten deep. We were amazed at how big the Museum is and how hard it is to get from one exhibit to the... More
