If you go to Paris, put the Louvre on your to do list. There's something for everyone, art, history, sculptures, world famous paintings, truly a sight to behold even for those not overly interested in such activities. Much more to see than just the Mona...More

I wasn't quite expecting the Louvre to be as big as it was. It took countless hours to go through. We also got lost and had trouble finding our way to the exit and specific exhibits. Definitely come here with a game plan of what...More

The museum itself is huge, you can finish it in 1 hour or in 3 hours. It all depends on how long you take to see each part. Obviously the thing that everyone wants to see is the Mona Lisa, and I can tell you...More

Be prepared to queue. It's going to be busy but worth a visit. There will be a massive queue for the audio guide which is of limited use and will require you to leave a firm of id as a deposit

You must avoid the art galleries with all the Chinese who do not respect much, extremely interesting as the part egypt and European painting

I visited for the second time and whilst it is amazing on all levels, there is so much to see in Paris that spending hours inside needs to be well worth the time. I reckon you need to spend at least a day to see...More

teh facade itself is gorgeous. buy tickets in advance if you dont want to stand in line for so long. allocate 3-4 hours to enjoy other displays other than mona lisa.

A disappointing experience. Overall, almost all staff had an attitude issue, perhaps they are underpaid or there French ego is too much that they don't assist people who don't speak French! It's a shame to see such a museum managed by such people! The main...More

Absolutely huge. A lot of walking. No signs in English and so looking at things is a little dull without knowing the story behind them. So I googled the top 10 to see, made sure we saw them. (took ages, very busy) then went to...More

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops

If you use the Paris Pass, there isn't any set time and you can walk in on whatever day you plan to go. If you have a timed ticket and you miss it, you're sort of back to being at the mercy of whoever is working the... More
My wife and I will be arriving in Paris for embarkation for a Viking River Cruise on June 24, 2018. The ship will be docked in Le Pecq for a few days. We discovered online that the Louvre offers a guided tour "WELCOME TO THE LOUVRE" GUIDED TOUR IN ENGLISH twice a day (11:00AM and 2:00PM) for 12 Euros/each. Tickets can only be purchased the day of the tour. I have a few questions: Does anyone know where exactly to purchase the tickets? In order to purchase tickets for the 2:00PM tour, does anyone know how far in advance of the tour we need to purchase the tickets before they run out (is there a cutoff time for ticket purchase)? Is it advisable to go with a higher priced tour or is this Louvre offered tour more than sufficient to see the highlights? Viking is offering a free shuttle from the ship to Paris, but I'm guessing it will take a minimum of 1 hour to get to the Louvre. Does anyone have experience getting to the Louvre from a Viking ship? Thank you so much for your kind attention.

If you come from the metro or via the pyramid it doesn't matter, you end up in the same queue. Once in head for the Denon wing and it is on the first floor. Good luck getting close to it, and please don't ignore all the... More
