Tips and reviews

Here's what Trippy members say about The Louvre:

"'Best' is always a matter of personal preference. Paris has an excellent, safe public transport system which is easy to use and getting around the city simple..... so one's base location isn't as important as it might be where there is no public transport or where using it isn't safe. Here's the official public transport site in its full English version: ;"  See More

"We stayed in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés Latin Quarter was close to everything you want to see, such as Luxembourg Garden, Musée d'Orsay, Notre Dame, The Louvre, took Uber to Eiffel Tower, Sacre Coeur Basilica, L'Arc de Triomphe de l'Etoile (great shopping in this area), wife especially like the Louis Vuitton store."  See More

"The best areas to stay are: Champs-Élysées, Tour Eiffel - Parc du Champ-de-Mars, Palais Garnier, Place de la Concorde and The Louvre but these areas are also the most expensive in Paris so it really depends on your budget."  See More

The walk down the Champs Elysees Paris to the L'Arc de Triomphe de l'Etoile. If you don't want to walk all the way down the Champs Elysees, you can catch the Metro at either the Franklin D. Roosevelt or Georges V stations and take them to the Charles de Gaulle Étoile station at the Arc de Triomphe. From there, take the Metro to Trocadéro.
