The Louvre

by mani8kgm

How does on go about on the highlights' tours of The Louvre. I've been told one follows a yellow or blue line to see the must sees. Haven't found that in any guide book. We plan on spending half a day. Any tips?

Thank you!

When you get into the Louvre, you can pick up a map that shows the museum plan and it will identify the highlights and show you where they are on the map (including pictures of what they look like). The really popular pieces (like the Mona Lisa) have signs pointing out the direction you need to go to find that particular display.

My tip is, spend the whole day at the Louvre; it is among the top five museums in the world.

Another tip: do not look at the floor; look at the beautiful ceilings in the Louvre. Remember this palais was once the home of kings and queens, emperors and empresses. Great sums of money and great amounts of time were spent decorating the ceilings. As at the Vatican Museum, the art is not only on the walls but overhead. LOOK UP!

The size of the Louvre is not meant to intimidate. Once you have passed from the main entry/ticket area the crowds thin. No one can see everything in one visit; do not try. Take it easy; take it slowly. Rushing from gallery to gallery defeats the purpose of enjoying the art. You are there to see beauty; to be touched, moved emotionally; take the time to have that happen.

Here is a tip: buy a Paris Museum Pass (http://en.parismuseumpass.com/). It is well worth the price, if you use it only to gain access to the Louvre at the special entry reserved for those carrying the Paris Museum Pass. This will save you time by not standing in the entry queue that snakes through Cour Napoléon.

Enjoy the City of Light!

With only half a day I strongly suggest you get a plan or book on the Louvre before you go and get an idea of the areas. The place is massive and you can easily spend an hour just walking through the ancient Egyptian area...the trouble is, if that is not your interest you have wasted a bunch of time. Pick your areas, e.g. the 15th and 16th masters in the Denon wing....and then lay out your map. Have a great time, Karl

Not wishing to be facetious, but I have been planning to spend half a day in the Louvre every time I have visted Paris over the last 30 years. Each time, it has worked out as a full day, or more.

Plan in advance, arrive early and wear comfortable walking shoes. Don't plan on doing anything else that day, because you could be frustrated by missing it, or cutting short your visit to the Louvre.

Travel Tips for Paris

Eiffel tower

by terrimae1972

I know this is cliche, but I loved the Eiffel Tower. I had no idea how MASSIVE it is. I pictured a decent size structure, but I did not expect to appear as an ant at the base of it. My fondest memory of Paris would be watching the different types of people throughout the city. Africans, Asians, Indian, Gypsies,etc.

You should buy the 'Pariscope'...

by renataa

You should buy the 'Pariscope' as soon as you arrive in Paris ou you could check it on the internet (www.pariscope.fr). It's a weekly guide that you buy at any newstand and it lists all cultural activities of the week. This way, you can plan your visits to temporary exhibitions and your evenings.

I didn't want to start with...

by lukec

I didn't want to start with it, since it's the sight most people associate Paris with, but yes, the Eiffel tower is a must. This impressive 300m high piece of steel was biult in 1889 for the World Fair in honour of 100th anniversary of the French Revolution. The tower stands on tip of Champs de Mars, just besides river Seine. An elevator brings you to the top platform, but be prepared to wait in the lines to get your ticket! The view from the top is great. We waited for the evening to go up, so when we were at the top, we could watch the sunset and then the thousands of lights come up in the city below. It was an unforgettable experience.

Advertising

by tiabunna

From time to time in Paris, you’re likely to encounter advertising signs that, in an Anglophone country, would bring down the roof on any company brave enough to use them. For example, this giant billboard at Galeries Lafayette, advertising swimsuits with the line (roughly translated) Summer will become hotter. I’m sure this would create a furore in Australia at least, as an example of sexism and exploitation: in the context of France, I doubt anyone thinks of it as more than an advertisement for swimsuits! What you make of it I’ll leave to you. To me, it seems this is an example of the relatively more relaxed French approach to some issues (e.g. my tip “the smells”) – though the French can become far from relaxed over issues of social justice, as shown by various revolutions and other civil disturbances!

Packing List

by ChrsStrl

One that will carry as much as you need - but don't feel the need to dress up unless you are really going for a special occasion. Carry a secure bag for walking around with. Pack for European weather - when we were there it was in the high 20's C! Only what you need to take specially - this is France! A wide-angle lens, a zoom lens, and lots of film. Good walking shoes - the one thing you should do is walk in Paris.
