When considering a visit to the Louvre a plan is required to get the best out of it.
My approach was:
- Do a bit of research and decide to only search for the pieces you are interested in.
- Go in on the late opening night about 90 minutes before closing time to avoid the crowds (and get the discount price).
- Don’t be distracted by anything on the way to what you want to see.
- Bypass the Mona Lisa and the hordes of Japanese/Korean (and now Chinese) groups crowding around it.
