Yes it's vast, but it's gorgeous and you can come face to face with paintings 200-500 years old or take a pic in front of Venus de Milo, or visit Napoleon's apartments if you so choose. Thank goodness for this privilege of being able to take non flash pics! Go in the morning (9:30), plan ahead a few must sees,... More

Buy the museum pass if you plan to visit a few places if a few days. With the museum pass you can skip the line and get into Louvre right away. The museum is huge, It's best to research what you want to see before you go. Unfortunately all the review mentioned the must see painting but no one tells... More

There were signs posted all over to beware of pick pockets, We were taken only to a few rooms, there were so many more to explore, but we didnt have time with... More

Great value for money, there is lots to see including the world famous paintings. There is also a large luxury shopping centre which was unexpected.

It's the Louvre, what can you say? It's huge, you can spend a whole week there if you really wanted to. After the Mona Lisa, there is still so much to see. It's truly amazing the variety and quantity of art contained within their walls. No matter where your interests lie, just go.

To be surrounded by priceless works of art and sculpture was a once in a lifetime experience. The Mona Lisa wasn't too bad herself either.

...and very difficult to cover in few hours or a day! Long long long line to buy tickets. We had bought our tickets online so didn't have to stand in queue... Buying tickets online is a good option only if you are going to stay close to any of the ticket pick up centers... Except two, most of the centers... More

As it is widely said, one of the best Museums in the world. it certainly did live up to that. its huge so you will at least need one full day to cover everything, but if you are an art lover I would probably need more than 2 days to thoroughly go through all of it. Also, just a note-... More
