It was 36 years since I first visited The Louvre. Sadly, it has been renovated and added to which, I believe, has taken the charm away. The internal layout makes it hard to find various things. Big no-no. They put a MacDonalds store inside. very wrong, very wrong.

Absolutely marvelous despite the crowds with just so much to see. Could have spent more than the one day we did in there exploring. The crowd jostling to see Mona Lisa was phenomenal. Got some great shots with a telephoto lens. Buy your tickets before you go to avoid the long queues to get in - not as bad as... More

It's awesome but you need all day long just to visit a tiny tiny bit of it. I recomend you select previusly the peaces you want to see and go only for our choices. Otherwise, it´s kind of impposible to see it all

Each time I visit Paris, I could spend days in this magnificent place. Regretfully there are not enough hours in the day.

There is so much to see. The ticket charge is excellent value for money and there are so many varied exhibits. Get there early if you do not book on-line in advance. We arrived about ten minutes before opening time (9am) and got in about 9.20.

You'd need ALL day to see everything in it. The Mona Lisa was quite disappointing. Very small painting and a huge crowd of people around it.
