“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

This was our first stop on arriving in Paris. We took the advice of another traveller and entered via the stairs near the small arch and underground shopping centre. No queues. The Louvre is open till late at night so started about 2pm. This was the end of November on a week day. It doesn't matter where you start as all galleries link in to each other. Allow at least 5 hours to gain a glimpse and 2 days to be thorough. It is huge! Favourites were the Napolean rooms, the medieval foundations, italian painters. Mona Lisa is much smaller than you think so don't have huge expectations. Loved the huge works by David.

“Simply a wonderful collection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

It is well worth braving the huge queues and chaotic reception hall to visit The Louvre because the art collection within is simply stunning. Try to allow yourself plenty of time as, though the dash to see the Mona Lisa is all very well, you will miss so many moments of pure, artistic delight, if you hurry around. After dark the courtyard itself, centred on the illuminated pyramid entrance, is a pretty amazing sight on its own. I know all the tourists come here - but on this occasion at least all the tourists are right.

“must see moana lisa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

You need days in this museum so pick what you want to see and go else you'll be there forever. Don't be put off by the looooong queues, it doesn't take long to get in. Find the moana lisa first and get your photos
