Seriously - you will need a minimum of about 4 hours to thoroughly enjoy what the Louvre has to offer.
We raced in to see the Pyramids and Mona Lisa and then raced out to see other sights.
I will definitely be heading back to Paris so that I can take my time in this place and appreciate how amazing (and amazingly large!) it is.

If you spend only one day in Paris and are an art lover, spend it here. The new Islamic collection is spectacular.

What can I say? It’s the Louvre … world renown … with a well-deserved reputation. My lady was insistent on seeing two exhibits, the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo, and that would make her visit a success.

The museum, itself, is large, majestic and magnificent. The admission lines moved swiftly via the use of automated machines that sucked up your credit card and spit out your admission tickets. There were people all around … crowds … but, not congestion. On the way to finding Mona, there were lots and lots of distractions, almost enough to forget your mission. When we got to Mona, there was a crowd around her, but not sufficient congestion to prevent me from getting close to her small frame and capture a picture as she smiled. Next stop was Venus… and on the way were lots of distractions. At Venus, there was a crowd surrounding her … and my camera went into action. We saw Egyptian artifacts … Greek … and … paintings on the ceiling … it was exhaustive. I think it would take five full days to fully appreciate the Louvre. This was our first trip to Paris, but we plan to do it again as part of our bucket list. When we do, the Louvre will again be on our itinerary.

First of all the area around the Louvre is huge with that iconic glass pyramid bursting out of the pavement, it's fabulous. Very modern and clean inside the museum with clear maps and direction. The artworks are varied and the Mona Lisa is like meeting an old friend. Stunning. Please make a trip here it's an afternoon of pure joy.

The Louvre is enormous and can get crowded, but it still worth seeing. We arrived at around 10am, and there were no appreciable lines, which was nice. We made our way to the Mona Lisa, and while it was mobbed, it was not unreasonable. We were able to get right up front and get a few pictures with la Giaconda! After that, we made our way around the museum to look at the other works. The sections are logically laid out, which makes everything easy to find. The only problem is that some sections are closed off, preventing you from getting around in the most direct manner. Also, sometimes you have to take stairs up and down just to stay on the same level! You'll see what I mean when you go there, because of course you will. Everyone does.
