Great. So much culture and art. The only negative is so many peddlers outside trying to sell cheap trinkets. A bit annoying.

We visited the Louvre Museum to have a look at the painting Monalisa. But we were terrified looking at the crowds there and it was literally a stampede. Had to see the painting from afar. Would recommend going early when it opens to have a peaceful experience.

I was in Paris during January when the high was 30 degrees Fahrenheit, and I spent over 18 hours at the Louvre over three days, and I barely scraped the surface of their collection! There is literally something for everyone here, with the exception of modern art. I am fascinated by antiquities, and there was more than enough for me,... More

I highly recommend the "Welcome to the Louvre" guided tour. You can not purchase this tour online, go to the museum when it opens and purchase the tour for that day. They had English at 11am and 2pm. It was definitely a great intro to this terrific museum!

I spent over 5 hours here, was fascinated by everything that we were able to see. Could easily have spent more time here, but then again Paris has a lot to offer so time can be precious. Will definitely visit again.

Lot of interesting and famous paintings, especially Mona Lisa. But to find a way somewhere inside is a problem, not well signed, most signs in French only, lot of people there. Better to purchase tickets in advance to shorten waiting time in que.

We have travelled all over the world and the shear size of the collection at the louvre is simply staggering. Plus add the magnificence and grandeur of the building itself and there is no equal when it comes to museums. One day is never enough.
