I adored everything about the louvre from the building and architecture to the amazing collection of art. I would personally say avoid the Mona Lisa and go and explore some of the other pieces in the amazing collection! I had a wonderful day, I would also recommend the balcony cafe, which served good sandwiches at a reasonable price with excellent... More

Worth all the hype, this is simply a must-do while you're in Paris. Be prepared to stand in a queue for a chance to see the Mona Lisa, but also be on the lookout for the young martyr, which is nearby & also stunning. One point of advice would be to check the entrance queues, if the Pyramid entrance is... More

It is probably best to map out what you want to see. This place is huge and if you roam, it can easily take several days to see all. Greek, Roman, Tuscan, Egyptian, etc is all over the place. Much walking but worth the effort. As I said, map it out if time is limited.

Interesting place, Very big and lots to see. Found the Mona Lisa disappointing in size and with lots of people flashing cameras was pretty hard to get up close. There a lot better art galleries in Paris to visit!

It's not only world's greatest Art Museum, it's largest too... We couldn't even finish half the museum. The museum opens at 09:00 but people queue up from 07:00 onwards. You'll have to stand for long hrs if you don't go early. Plan important paintings to visit first. Mona Lisa is ALWAYS crowded.

A beautiful way to spend the day in Paris. Buy a Paris Pass and skip the extensive line at entrance.

We had a fantastic experience visiting the Louvre. We arrived at about half ten and only had to wait 10 minutes to get in (on a Saturday). It was a pleasant surprise when we found out that the children were free and the adult tickets were only 15 euro each. We were there over 5 hours and this was nowhere... More

To be honest, we weren't going to bother going here... We'd seen the impressive building from the outside, but my partner is not really one for museums and collections of artifacts... but then it poured with rain for the whole day so we went in... Here's a tip - book your tickets online before you decide to visit, use the... More
