The Mona Lisa is possibly the least enjoyable thing in the Louvre. It's behind glass, you can't get close to it, and there will be a giant hoard of people waving cameras between you and the painting. It's not a lot of fun. But in a room just nearby you can get up close and personal with some gorgeous Botticellis,... More

Loved the pyramid they have made outside. Infact went in there for the first time in 2002 when it was just built and even in 2014 it was still as appealing as before. This is one of the things you have to do when your in Paris! its louvre, sheek, arty and parisian culture at its best.

If you're in Paris for more than a few days, go when it's raining. I lucked out and had nice weather except on the Sunday and so I spent hours in the Louvre and it was great.

The Louvre is timeless and a must-see anytime you visit Paris. The Mona Lisa is comfortably resting there and the September crowd allowed a close up view. Highly recommend purchasing a Museum Pass before your visit. The no-wait access is priceless!

This museum is so large, it is almost too difficult to navigate. Thanks to the Rick Steeves Audio tour for steering us to the highlights. Quite remarkable how many people crowd around the Mona Lisa when there are so many more impressive works at the museum.

Me and my girlfriend visited the museum 2 days ago and thought it was beautiful. We are both 30 and we are not that interested in art but still enjoyed it greatly. The surrounding property around the museum is beautiful as well. If you have any interest in art at all, I highly recommend checking this place out! You can... More

This place is huge! You really need two days to view the whole museum, you'll get lost a couple of times until you get used to the plan of the museum you can pick up! Overall, it's fantastic, Napoleons apartments were incredible and the other exhibits were also impressive. Difficult to get close to the Mona Lisa and Venice de... More

We had Paris pass, we didn't have to wait in the sun, Louver was nice and many things to see, staff were friendly and helpful. a lot of people around the Mona, even if some of them were surprised by the size of the painting. very small tho.

No words or photos do this place justice. It was absolutely amazing. You could literally wander around this place for hours and still not see it all. Obviously, the highlight was seeing the Mona Lisa - but it was all spectacular...even if you're not necessarily an art lover. There's no way to see all this place offers without being blown... More
