The Louvre has loads of statues and paintings etc but most go to see La Giaconda, the signeage is a bit of a bind and also you get lots of pushy eastern tourists who, in my case you may not see and therefore tread on. You cannot do this museum in a day as it is huge!!

The pyramid surrounded by the castle is beautiful. Not very fun if you are traveling with your family and aren't an art enthusiast. However, it's a must-see since it has the famous artwork of the Mona Lisa.

A friend recommended a guided tour from Paris Muse. We booked a tour called - An Introduction to the Treasures of the Louvre (2-hour tour). and we also booked a tour of Musée d'Orsay: The Age of the Impressionists (2-hour tour). Our guide for both tours was Vanessa. We loved her. She is great. I would highly recommend Paris Muse... More

I had always been told that the Mona Lisa was an anti-climax but for me it was the highlight of our trip!. We pre-downloaded the audio guide for the Louvre - th emasterpieces tour and the Egyptian tour. Both were well worth it. The Louvre is not to be missed. We had Paris Museum Passes which allowed us to join... More

Another classic in Paris. The Louvre is a staple for art. Still knowing its greatness, I was not prepared for how breath taken I was. I suggest going on Tuesdays, I believe that is the day it is open late!

We visited 2x in our week in Paris, using our Museum Pass which is a must if you don't want to spend your time on line to enter. We mapped our visit, the first day we tried to visit the "hits" using Rick Steve's free audio tour on our phones. The 2nd day we stayed off the beaten path ,... More

Would recommend a visit if your heading to paris, when we went it was closed on Tuesdays so I would check that before going and also wear light clothes as it's very hot... More

If you travel to Paris, Louvre is must see place! There are great exhibitions, paintings, statues etc.. I would recommend for long visit. Also, if you are european union citizen up to 26 years of age, the entrance is free of charge! All you have to do is show your ID card.

Although I have been to Paris maybe more than 100 times, I only visited The Louvre museum couple of times. But I can say that it was an amazing experience. Both of my times were in the renaissance section. Needless to say Mona Lisa of Da Vinci's and Venus di Milo were the centre of attractions. But since I am... More

Of course the Louvre is a must see - the amazing artwork that is concentrated in this one equally amazing structure - but the crowds are a bit too much. I wished that there was a quiet time in the museum and spaces where I could have actually sat and appreciated works of art, rather than fighting crowds to see... More
