“Overwhelming”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2012

Our bike tour guide told us that if you spent 30 seconds at every painting and sculpture, you would be at the Louvre for 6 weeks straight, 24/7. At first, I didn't believe him, and then I went to the musee, and was utterly overwhelmed with how much beautiful art work was there!

I would have enjoyed the museum if it wasn't as crowded and I wasn't as hot walking through while people pushed and shoved me. I would love to come back during non-peak season.

“Get a Guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2012

Not to be missed but get a guide if you want the best experience. There is SO much here to see and a knowledgable guide will take you to the highlights and/or your interests. A guide will fill in the gaps and make the experience that much more meaningful. Recommend Dark Rome guide service.
