    Don't miss ancient Iran, the most amazing part among all ancients

    I've been there twice and I would still like to visit it once more. A place where you can find all different sorts of artistic creation in human history.

    There's no way you can see Mona Lisa. A huuuuuge crowd of Asians taking pictures of it won't let you to do that.

    Amazing building with amazing art. Don't miss the Winged Victory and Napoleon's chambers (also stop into the Angelina next to Napoleons's chambers for the hot chocolate)!

    Go to the 2nd entrance, so much quicker. Give yourself 8 hours to see almost everything. And wear good walking/standing shoes

    On busy days, enter via the Porte des Lions. You'll have direct access to the main drag Halls of Spanish and Italian Painting.... this can be a good or a bad thing, if you are trying to avoid crowds.

    Mona Lisa isn't the most attractive work. Turn around and look at this huge painting. This one is certainly the biggest I ever seen.

    You need at least 2 full days to see everything here. Get the audio guide! Buy the tickets online and collect it at rue d pyramids tourism center to avoid the loooooong line. Magnificent place

    Instead of taking a snapshot of a great work of art, put down your camera and look at the great works with your eyes instead of your camera screen.

    The line outside the Louvre is just to get in. There is a new line inside the Louvre to buy an entrance ticket.

    Fridays they museum is open until 9:30 but they stop handing out audio guides at 8. Very impressive and worth a visit but don't expect to see all of it at once. Very overwhelming!

    Enter via the 'Le Carousel du Louvre' and get your tickets either online or via the self-service ticket booths if you want to avoid standing in a queue

    Best day to go it's on Wednesday around 8:00 pm. It's very quite and you can see the most impotant things very quickly as it's not very crowded. If you have the museum pass, you don't queue.

    If your visiting a few more museums and historical churches, grab the Museum Pass for free entry and a fast track to the head of the queue, or special access for Museum Pass holders

    The Louvre is very beautiful at night as well. Save time for some night shots!

    If the throngs of people snapping photos of the Mona Lisa are too much for you, try the Middle Ages collection in Richelieu. Very Game of Thrones and no crowds.

    Call me unorthodox but I was left speechless by the "Winged Victory of Samothrace" rather than anything else... ;) really stunning...

    It was so historical and crowded place. For entering this place we have waited for 1 hour.

    Stand at one of the exits, strike up a conversation with someone leaving (be super nice) and you can usually score a free ticket - and therefore skip the queue.

    There’s one circuit to follow if you only wish to see the star pieces. Pick up excellent free maps to explore in depth. – Green Guide Editor

    Home to one of the world's most famous masterpieces - The Mona Lisa. We recommend a visit at night when you can see the pyramid shaped museum lit up.

    Head here on the days when the museum is open late because the entry fee goes down after 6pm and there are less crowds.

    Nothing else like the Louvre. Open late on Wed and Fri - smaller crowds and beautiful sunset views with your art! The audio tour from their app was very helpful, make sure you've got full battery.

    You could spend days here. Best to figure out what you want to see ahead of time. August afternoon lines were short.

    It's better to book your tickets on line in order to by pass the queue.
