make sure you get in early and prebook and it is unbelievable. Get to the the Mona Lisa early. Go to the gardens at night and see it lit lit up.

A visit to the Louvre is probably the first item on everyone's to do list for Paris. It sure was on ours. A word of advise would be to pre book and pay for the fast track tickets for entry. My wife and I spent...More

It's huge! Absolutely huge! Every corner of it is covered in art. It's more than you can get! You can go to specific area or you can wander through the whole museum. If you want to visit the whole museum I think you need more...More

I only managed to get into Louvre on my last visit to Paris (hope it wasn’t altogether last!). I really hate long lines, and crowds inside, too. Moreover, I had my mother with me, and at her age she could not really manage standing in...More

You really need to allow lots of time to take in the beautiful displays and art work. It was wonderful to just stand and be surrounded by it all. The Mona Lisa had quite a crowd around her so must be the most popular piece.

If in Paris, do make time to visit the Louvre. Pack in some time, loads of energy and appreciation for the Arts, and the Louvre will not disappoint you.

This can be overwhelming . Even Parisians do not know everything here. I am sure you'll read many reviews about the Louvre. Would like to add here that you should "get lost" in the off beaten path galleries, filled with wonderful treasures from old clocks...More

Use the entrance at the Carrousel du Louvre. Check out the elevator that comes down the staircase from the top.

So many people say this isn't the best museum in Paris, and whether they are right or wrong doesn't matter, this is the Louvre, and if you haven't been you need to go. We only had a few days in Paris but my kids just...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

On Tuesdays when they are closed, is it still crowded outside during sunset? I am a photographer and I'm trying to get pictures without any "people" being in them.

We took pictures at sunrise and sunset. It was somewhat crowded at sunset, but no one out at sunrise. Hope this helps.
Is the daily Guided Tour that you have to purchase tickets for done with headsets? Is there a limit to the size group they take around? I know you can't reserve in advance,
