Everything is big at the Louvre – the building, the artwork, the crowds, the awe! Thank goodness we chose a 3-hour highlights tour package to focus on the must-see and whip through the should-see, while leaving so much more to see to another visit. Without question, you have to visit the three major exhibits - the Mona Lisa, the Venus... More

You need a whole day to visit the museum, it is a great place, you can see the Monaliza and the last dinner paints. The Pharaonic partition is the biggest one and you can see also there a mummy.

I've visited a large variety of art museums and I was looking forward to visiting the Louvre. If you're an art lover then the Louvre is a must see for priceless works of art. However, the crowds leading up to the Mona Lisa are sizable and visitors can be pushy and it may be difficult to get anywhere near the... More

If in Paris and you can fit in a day or half a day - the Louvre Museum is a must. Depending on your time - make a must to see the 5-10 most important attractions: Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, Winged Vitory of Samothrace, Da Vinci's - the Last Supper. From room to room , each painting or sculpture... More

its a big big big big big big museum. Make sure you exercised for it. And are in walking shoes plus plenty of time so you can rest without needing to rush. unless you are just planning to go in for the Monna Lisa, then its fine; but get ready for the crowd.

Everyone going to Paris is going to visit the Louvre. It's the home of the Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo and the Winged Victory. These are the big three and have the largest crowds and probably justifiable so. However, there is much more to the Louvre than 3 works of art. The museum is in a former palace and... More

You may think that you need to see the whole museum in one visit - this is a mistake. It is so huge it can easily be overwhelming. We went for just one hour, and focused on Napoleon's apartments on this trip - very fun to see all of the gilt on the walls and furniture. We left feeling refreshed... More

First of all I will recommend buying tickets online prior to visiting. This will mean you can skip the long lines outside. The museum itself is massive. You have to come and visit this place if you are visiting Paris if not only to see the Mona Lisa. The architecture of the building on the inside is something else, with... More

If you are into art, this is heaven. Some of the pieces are absolutely stunning, and it's not every day you see the Mona Lisa! However the ability of the staff to deal with humans, as opposed to anything inanimate, particularly in the cafés within the museum leaves a lot to be desired . . .

As if the outside isn't mesmerising enough, the art kept in this museum is simply captivating. We spent a good few hours in here, particularly since taking photos is permissible. Definitely go if you have the chance! But bear in mind the fact that this annoyingly closes at 6 and isn't open on Tuesdays. We almost didn't realise that and... More
