Tips and reviews

Here's what Trippy members say about The Louvre:

"If you are not big museum people, you'd be fine with a couple of days but if you are planning on seeing the The Louvre or the Musée d'Orsay you may want to add another day on as both can be time consuming."  See More

"One of my favorite free activities in Paris is to walk from le Jardin des Tuileries eastward to la Pyramide du Louvre and the musee (The Louvre), particularly just before dusk."  See More

"You could probably even make it to the L'Arc de Triomphe de l'Etoile and The Louvre with those 11 hrs taking the metro!"  See More

"Google the back enterance in the The Louvre if your going and you will save time on lining up in the general entry it took me 3 minutes to get in as opposed to over 1 hour at front main enterance( had to find though) find the elevator in the lobby as this is 1 of the top 10 elevators in the world"  See More

"The Louvre should also be on the list although it is quite overwhelming."  See More

"The The Louvre alone will take all day."  See More

"If you want to visit museums, try Musée d'Orsay'; Musee Rodin Musée Picasso or The Louvre (if I remember well at Louvre Thursday is the day with long opening hours"  See More

"Three days in Paris can fly, especially if you like museums and are overcome by the scale and abundance of the The Louvre including the chance to see the Mona Lisa, the Winged Victory of Samothrace, Michelangelo's Slaves, and the Venus de Milo, or the Musée d'Orsay where you can sample an unparalleled collection of Impressionist and post-impressionist painters including Renoir, Monet, Manet, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Morisot, and Cassatt, among others."  See More
