November was a great time to visit the Louvre. There crowds were minimal and using the Paris Pass got us in very quickly on a cold day. Everything about the Louvre is impressive. I've seen most of the major European galleries and landmarks but the scale of the overall complex alone is extraordinary. You've got to plan your time. It would probably take two full days to do the place full justice.

If you love art of any kind, this is a must stop in Paris. If you love architecture,this is a fabulous place. We spent almost as much time looking up as looking around. We didn't get tickets ahead of time, but arrived at 9:10am, and got in line. They opened 10 mins early and we were inside by 9:35. Within 2 hrs the place was packed. But, still, don't miss this if you're in Paris.

We went to to Louvre in early December, meaning that queuing was at a minimum. Very quick entry and free for 18-25 year olds in the EEE with ID.

The layout itself is very confusing, even with a map.

Be prepared to give up around 6 hours to see everything in the museum. We stayed for around three hours and only saw half of the permanent exhibits.

Paintings and sculptures are very interesting, however ancient Egypt/Greek/roman exhibits are fairly simple and not that exciting.

There are a lot of stairs! The strangeness of the layout means that you take a flight of stairs, and then go straight down another one, then back up another set before reaching an exhibit, very strange!

Cafe's served good food, paris prices apply. Starbucks on site also.

OK, you're going to go no matter what, so here's the down low. Once you see the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo, and whatever else strikes your fancy (assuming you can find it), look up and admire the amazing ceiling artwork in this place. In my opinion it's the best reason for going to the Louvre. I've been there twice and still find it the most confusing tourist place I've even been to. If I ever go back to the Louvre I'm going to hire a tour guide, it's that confusing and expansive. Admission is pricey, but if you're under 26 and a EU citizen (or can prove permanent residency) it's free. Be sure once you see the museum you check out the co-located large underground mall with the very upscale stores.There is also a rather large food court with decent and inexpensive international food vendors.

You could spend several days in this museum and still not see everything. The sculpture gardens, atrium, and paintings do not disappoint. No flash photography! Dress comfortably and wear your walking shoes. There is a pay toilet that is a real treat, but the other restrooms are nice too.
