    A must see on your trip to Paris. I remember when I lived in Paris the crowds can get crazy around the Louvre. If you are there during high season it pays to be on a tour group if you plan on seeing some of the Louvre more famous residents. Groups are let in a different way than the single entry guests. You can't see everything in Paris in one day. Please allow time to relax and take it easy. That is what Paris is about. Don't rush, sit have a glass of wine on your way down the Champs Élysées.

    There is so much more to this place than just the Mona Lisa. Do yourself a favor and plan to spend two or three full days here. It will take at least that long just to walk through each of the huge galleries. You could probably spend weeks here and still not see all there is to see.

    Walking distance from the apartment, it will need at least a morning or an afternoon.
    Stroll to the museum and have a look at the architecture as well as the content!

    The glass pyramid help bring the Louvre to the current century. This cultural treasure is a must see in Paris. Both the structure and contents are gems.

    I was pleasantly surprised to find out the price of food and drinks at the cafe in this museum were mostly cheaper than prices at outside restaurants. After thinking it over I thought my prior 4 star rating may have been a little too stingy.

    I really enjoyed the Louvre, there is some truly wonderful art to discover.... but it is absolutely massive, and I feel like I didn't even scratch the surface!

    Unless you're an art buff I suggest getting a tour guide so that you can make the most out of your visit. The Egyptian exhibit is a must see. It has an interactive walkway that visitors of all ages will enjoy. It gets very hot inside the Louve so don't take lots of items you'll have to carry around and be prepared to do some walking, especially when going to see the Mona Lisa.

    See the Mona Lisa and many more historical paintings but also don't miss the impressionist paintings which are in the Orangerie close by.

    The Louvre is 15' by bus number 95 which could be taken beside the Montparnasse tower.
    You can go by walk crossing Latin district or Tuilerie garden and Seine river.
    Stop in the Café Flore in Saint Germain quarter.

    Use one of the alternate entrances instead of the Pyramid entrance to save time waiting in line.

    The ultimate museum-lover's museum. Allow a couple of days for leisurely study. Before you come do a little research to see what's there, and choose your top hits, or not, and just wander. You'll see some very famous paintings and sculptures and say Woah! That's Here! It will be like seeing a long-lost friend.

    The Louvre is one of the world's largest museums, a historic monument and a central landmark of Paris. I am glad I 've been here :)

    Moltissimi turisti (italiani soprattutto) confondono il Louvre con la sola stanza della Gioconda che, a mio parere, da non esperta di arte, è una grandissima delusione. Prendetevi il tempo per ammirare anche il resto è non ve ne pentirete

    If you go through the underground shopping mall, the wait to get in is usually shorter. It is impossible to see in a day or two, but of course it has Everything!

    The Louvre is one of the World's great museums. The breadth of their art collection is stunning. You could easily spend a couple weeks if you wanted to see everything the museum has to offer. There are plenty of iconic pieces of art like the Mona Lisa, and the Venus de Milo. The museum itself was a former royal residence, and is impressive in its own right. You should plan on at least one full day in the Louvre, and if you have time you won't regret spending more than that.

    An obvious must see when in Paris. Come see the Mona Lisa. There is also lower entry costs for students and on certain days. The lines will always be long around the Mona Lisa.

    It goes without saying that this should be on your list of things to do every time you go to Paris. The collection is so immense you will never see it all. For first time visitors definitely see the highlights. Although you might be deterred by the crowds, the Mona Lisa won't disappoint. Check out the greatest hits...then go deeper next time around. Our kids loved it! The cafes there are quite good and inexpensive.

    Amazing! It can be overwhelming, but definitely go see the more famous pieces. Avoid the main entrance for shorter lines.

    An absolutely great museum that has an old feel to it. On top of that, it houses the famous Mona Lisa painting.

    I have never been a big museum buff, but this one blew my mind. It contains some of the most famous pieces int he world, but also a variety of different art mediums from different periods, that will give any novice a great overview of styles.

Description

For museum lovers, this is the art mothership. Originally built as a 12th century fortress, it was turned into a royal palace in the 14th century. The latest addition is architect I.M. Pei's glass pyramid, a controversially modern update to the oh-so-traditional building that allows sunlight to filter to the underground lobby. There is enough art for a lifetime on display here; three wings and ... read more
about 35,000 pieces, to be exact. Look for the crowds of visitors to steal a glimpse at a much-smaller-in-real-life Mona Lisa hiding behind them.
