The Louvre is a must in Paris. Everytime I go to Paris, I go again. You cannot take the whole thing in one day, and there are sections for every mood. If you have never been, you have to go see the mona lisa and the venus de milo. If you have already seen them, it is a great experience jus t to go again, or visit the egyptian, or islamic art sections. I always have a great time there.

The Louvre cannot disappoint. Whatever you are interested in: paintings, sculptures, Egyptian tombs, Roman and Greek art, etc., the Louvre has it all.

So much to do and so much culture. If you don't like art head to the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo (just to say you've seen it) and then go to the Egyptian and Greek section for some history (and the giant sphinx).

Could have spent days in the Louvre, there was just so much to see!
The Louvre, at 11 Euro per person is exceptional value for money. It was really well organised - although there was a queue it went down really quickly. And there are lots of facilities inside too - plenty of toilets and places to eat (important if you're taking children). They also have a cloakroom, which is great if you don't want to lug your coat around all day.
The architecture of the building, and the scale of it is amazing without all the works of art. I was also surprised at how close you could get to the artifacts. I was expecting most of it to be behind glass, etc, but a lot of it was not.
At the risk of sounding very british, it would have been useful for the artifact descriptions to be translated. I know enough french to get by when visiting france, but even with that and armed with a phrase book, some descriptions were still too much of a challenge.
Would still love to go back and see the bits we didn't get to see.
