"The Louvre is probably the..." Louvre Tip by BR0WND0G

Louvre, Paris: 14 reviews and 16 photos


The Louvre is probably the greatest museum in the world. It's overwhelming in scope, and cannot be tackled in one visit. To really appreciate the Louvre, you'd want 2 or 3 days. But, if your visiting Paris and not just the Louvre, set a game plan before going. Decide what your interest is, paintings, sculptures, etc. then visit those.

Rick Steves' book, Mona Winks is an excellent guide to the Louvre and other European museums and will make the experience more fullfilling. Also, many books by Irving Stone will give you a better understanding of art history, including; Depths of Glory (about the beginnings of Impressionism); Agony and the Estasy (Michaelangelo); and Lust for Life (Van Gogh).
