Beat the crowds, see the highlights

Skip the line at the quickest entry point and go straight to Mona Lisa. Souvenir pictures taken, discover what makes the Louvre such an iconic museum. After seeing the best-known works of art, I will leave you with my own DIY guides to explore other, quieter, parts of the museum. To beat the crowds, a 9am start is highly recommended.
Tickets are not included, due to recent changes in Louvre procedures it is preferable to buy timed, named tickets online from the official Louvre site.
