Top sights in Paris
The Louvre in Paris is the world’s most visited museum. Its legendary collection boasts more than 35,000 paintings, sculptures and artifacts dating from prehistory to the modern day. The masterpieces are myriad, but these 5 are the crème de la crème.
Possibly the most famous painting in the world, Da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa” is synonymous with the Louvre. Her enigmatic smile and inescapable gaze draws millions to Paris every year.
Wonderfully maintained over two millennia, this statue of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty, is one of the most iconic specimens of ancient Greek sculpture.
This 2.15-meter-high statue of a slave struggling against his fetters is one of Michelangelo’s greatest achievements and a sublime demonstration of sculpture’s dynamic potential.
Dating back to the days of the Pharaohs, this exquisite painted limestone sculpture is the most renowned piece in the Louvre’s exceptional collection of Egyptian antiquities.
Highly controversial upon its construction, the Louvre Pyramid is now one of Paris’ cultural treasures. The glass pyramid’s spectacular nighttime illumination is not to be missed.
The queues to the Louvre can be daunting. The main entrance, through the Louvre Pyramid, is always the most crowded. An insider tip is using the entrance located in the underground shopping center, Carrousel du Louvre, where you can buy your ticket and pass the security checks free of hassle. If you want to experience the Pyramid, you can always do so on your way out.
The museum is gigantic, so it’s essential to make sure you have enough time to see everything you want. The museum is open from 9:00AM until 6:00PM on most days, and until 9:45PM on Wednesdays and Fridays. Arrive early, grab one of the free maps at the ticket purchase area, and take some time to plan your visit – it’s worth it!
Together with a number of Paris’ museums, the Louvre is closed on Tuesdays. Take this opportunity to visit other sights such as the Eiffel Tower or the Arc de Triomphe and come back on another day!

What People Are Saying About Louvre Museum
Buying the tickets online was very easy. On the day of our Eiffel tour visit, we went to the tickets collection meeting point, you have to be there on time in order to follow the tour guide. His name was Max & he was very knowledgeable & friendly. He gave us info about the main landmarks we saw from the tower which was very beneficial since it was our first day in Paris. Max also told us all about the tower so having a guide with us was very beneficial since I am interested in history & facts. Later on, we went to the summit alone & it was super amazing. We saved time by not having to wait to buy the tickets but there's always a wait on the security check & elevators. As for the Louvre & boat trip, we did them on separate days and both experiences we super pleasant but if you have time, buy the tickets yourself for those 2.
It was difficult and confusing to find where to pick up the tickets, but otherwise everything was great.
The tour was all that I expected and more, our tour guides Remi and Sebastian where both very knowledgeable and made the tour a very memorable one. It was my first time in Paris and I really would recommend this tour to any first timer in Paris. It takes to the most popular land marks and gives you a quick and broad overview of that lovely city. Remi was amazing with the way he walked us through the Eiffel Tower and major attractions close by. I would highly recommend this tour administered by Linda with these two great tour guides, Remi and Senastian. Their professionalism is outstanding.
Alex, our tour guide was really into it, I know Paris reasonably well, however he showed us places I didn’t know they existed. Using an eBike is very convenient and allows you to experience Paris in the best way you can imagine. Thank you Alex and I certainly recommend this trip to everyone.
Take your time; relax you'll see everything in due course. And my gawd there's so much to see. Floor after floor and gallery after gallery it's a sumtuous feast. One thing - buy the skip-the-line tickets. Don't go all the way to Paris and wait in line. Besides, you get lots more time inside. Cheers, Jack.
