The lourve is amazing...so much to see but would take possibly more than a day. . Great if you love history and culture and of course art. Although seeing the monalisa was good it wasn't the best piece of art in there. Totally recommend this. Also got a glass of champagne with chocolate which was reasonably priced and lovely.

This is an art museum but most people only really come to see the Mona Lisa. I came on a tour to avoid the never-ending queue outside and was taken to see the main attractions of the museum including the Venus de Milo and some other works. I enjoyed going down to see the 13th century fortress under the art... More

Too bad we didnt have enough time to go inside but just looking from the facade is really cool. Enjoyed taking photos and admiring the place was good enough for me.

An amazing museum you could spend a week exploring. I took 4 kids there ranging in age from 6 to 17 and they loved it. The history, incredible art and national treasures leap out from history. Plan your trip, but is still good value even if you only spend half a day there. The staff are very friendly and it... More

One of the main reasons I wanted to visit Paris! I love the arts. I stayed in this museum for hours to view everything. No complaints since it was what I wanted. Too many rude tourist, but then again it is somewhat expected in a touristy area.

Expected to only stay a few hours to admire some of the classic art, but mesmerised by each piece! Definitely worth spending an entire day on. Superb!

Such a unique experience. Went to see the Mona Lisa of course but enjoyed so much more. Take a day out. It may seem a lot of time but in the Louvre you wander about and then go back again. The return visit fills you with a sense of cultural indulgence so special and unique. Don't miss this.

Take your time and enjoy. Le Louvre is one of the must see in life. But you don't finish it in an evening, in a day, or even in a week... Everything is there, and you need lot of time to see everything

This museum is so big you ned 2 days to see it al. It goes up 4 levels and is in huge square configuration. The maps so get show you the layout but don't tell you how to get to the more famous things like Mona Lisa. The signage inside the museum could be better also. For example after seeing... More
