"Le Louvre" Louvre Tip by barryg23
Louvre, Paris: 24 reviews and 26 photos
The Louvre is probably the world's most famous museum and one of Paris's most visited tourits attractions, yet I have never really enjoyed my visits here. I think you'd need a few days to fully explore each wing, and I have never had the patience or love or art to do so. I found it repetitive, vast, and not half as interesting as expected.
Many people just visit to see La Joconde (Mona Lisa) which is as much a let down as anything else here (it also takes forever to find it).
Unique Suggestions: Go on Sundays when it is free or on afternoons after 3pm when it's either free or half-price (can't remember which).
Fun Alternatives: I much preferred Musee D'Orsay (see my must-see activities). Some of the smaller museums such as the Dali, or Picasso, are a better option.
