A must see for most people. Personally it was too much for me. Too many things to look at, too many people, and the Mona Lisa is so tiny you can't get near it. Anyways people got mad at me on a forum when I said I didn't enjoy the Louvre but hey we all have personal opinions. I would say to definitely go but if it isn't your thing I understand. I see why people often recommend going to smaller museums. You can spend as little or as much time as you want at the Louvre. You could definitely be there for days looking at everything. I am glad I didn't wait in line (it was December) or I would have been disappointed even more.

Sorry to those who love it.

I did love the gardens outside the Louvre. Even in December it was beautiful with the fountain, the statues (amazing!) and the leaves on the paths! Tres romantique!
