The Louvre is one of the top 10 sites visited in Paris with over 7 million visitors a year! So, you are probably looking for ways to maximize your time when visiting the museum.
There are several ways to see the museum:
- Self guided tour using the free map you receive at the museum visitors desk
- renting the audio guide
- downloading the app
- taking a guided tour
- participating in a museum hunt from THATLou
There have been several questions posted on my most popular article about the Louvre asking about the guided tour.
A guided tour of the Louvre Museum is a great way to see the most popular works of art like Mona Lisa, Winged Victory and the famous statue of David. The tour also shows you the history of the museum including the original fortress. On top of that, its a quick history lesson on the evolution of art style and techniques. If you are rushed for time, I recommend it.
