Each visit I learn something new and interesting about this place. To me it is fascinating and yet, I wonder what was life like living or working in such a place-- simple things like where was the nearest bathroom in relation to the rooms?? While visiting remember to look up. You will miss so much if you don't. A place... More

Visited 7 years ago with our children. This time it was just the 2 of us. Rented the English language audio guides for 5 euros and would recommend. I learned a lot about the art by listening to it at specific locations. Tons of things to see and I know the 7 hours we spent here did not cover them... More

Most visitors to Paris will be considering a visit to the Louvre, and it is well worth it. I would strongly recommend that you buy tickets in advance to reduce your waiting time. The obvious attractions can be seen very quickly as they are in close proximity to each other, but be prepared for a scrum to see the Mona... More

Never expected what we saw here. This is unbelievable - the ceilings, Mona Lisa (not what I expected!), statues. You need to take your time and really take it in. If I recall correctly when we were there photographs were not allowed. You can walk for hours inside.

We have toured other phenomenal museums in Rome, St. Petersburg, Florence.. Washington, DC....& other cities & the Louvre is superb. It is thrilling to be able to view magnificent art & items of antiquity that are so well preserved & displayed. The Mona Lisa, of course, was the highlight view. We were there about 3 hours....could have used 3 days...lol.... More

Fascinating place,even if you are not much into art you will find it very appealing. Monalisa and last supper are in the same room,which is the most crowded one. Enjoy the details of walls,paintings and even the ceilings and try to dedicate some time to take pictures outside the pyramid with the lovely view.

You could never see it all, but if you have a handful of paintings and works of art that you wish to see before you leave then it feels more manageable. It wouldn't be a trip to Paris without going to the Louvre. We prepaid for tickets on the official website and went to the main Pyramid entrance without a... More

The Louvre is a bit not mine kind of venue. Of course it's famous and is the place any person must see, but I have different taste for art
