What You Absolutely Must See at the Louvre in Paris

One of the biggest attractions in Paris is the Louvre. There’s something special about this place that makes it a continual attraction for people from all around the rest of France, Europe and the entire world.


It’s not necessarily that the Louvre is so large and amazing. It’s also the fact that it has so much history packed in and around its walls.


With that being said, you’re probably all set to go, right? Well, hold your horses a bit. There are some things that you need to remember when it comes to visiting this monstrosity. First, you won’t be able to see everything in one day. There’s no possible way. Instead, you’ll need to make sure that you at least plan three to four days to see most of what the Louvre has to offer. Actually, if you want to be serious about it, you’ll plan a few weeks or a month. If that’s not possible for you, make sure to keep these tips in mind for your shorter trip.


  1. October is the best time of the year to visit. It’s a little slower, but the exhibits are still fantastic.


  1. The Mona Lisa is great. You can’t miss it. But look at everything else that’s there too! Check out the Death of Mondale, for example. There are tons of overlooked pieces to view.


  1. Linger a little bit as you walk. We know that we just said there’s way too much to see, but don’t forget to go slowly. This is often a once in a lifetime experience.
