Louvre Museum, 99 rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris France
When you're short on time, avoiding the long queue to the Louvre is easy with priority admission. Linger over the artworks and take your time, using a provided museum map and audio guide. Pick them up at a central location in Paris, then take a short stroll to the Louvre Museum's main entrance for your security check. Sidestep the entry lines with your skip-the-line ticket and head straight inside to begin your independent tour.

Your map outlines suggested itineraries and your audio guide catches all the highlights, encapsulating Greek antiquity, French painting, and Italian masterpieces. Admire the "Mona Lisa" and hear interesting information about the most-loved and best-known works of art on display, like "Venus de Milo" and the "Winged Victory of Samothrace," while exploring the world’s largest art museum. 

Afterward, discover the Louvre’s many other rooms, brimming with world-famous and lesser-known gems. When you get tired or hungry, visit one of the many on-site eateries, or purchase gifts and souvenirs at the bookstore. Then saunter through the Tuileries Garden before returning your audio guide.

Traveler Tips


  • "Skip the line is nice - we were there on a Thursday and there was no line but we hear there are long lines at times." See review
  • "Be prepared for the crowds around the Mona Lisa - these seemed to be much larger than previous visits so worth trying to time your visit for early or late in the day of you want a good view." See review

Terrible organisation.

Firstly, it is not explained enough that the email you receive is not your ticket. Got to the redemption point, a small office and it was full of people with absolutely no direction. Staff were terrible, so rude. Finally got to the front of the 25 minute queue to be told that they hadn’t received our tickets so we weren’t able to do the tour we had booked. I questioned why this couldn’t be sorted as it wasn’t our fault they hadn’t received it and there must have been a way to fix it. After been told we had to join a group tour, we waited another 20 minutes to leave the office. We weren’t actually given tickets by the office or the guide so even though the guide kept saying that we could stay and explore after the tour, we were unable to easily manoeuvre the museum as we couldn’t leave or enter certain areas without a ticket. All in all I would not recommend this tour to anyone.

Absolute disgust!
Caroline M
, Dec 2019
I asked the security guard at the Museum entrance, for assistance to where i needed to redeem my voucher and he said I had to stand in line. After 40 minutes in line I was then told the actual location i needed to go was a 10 minute walk away and that I would have to come back and stand in line again unless I wanted to buy tickets again from the museum. I had to pay another $45. What a ripoff. I’m thoroughly disgusted with the dishonestly and greed.

Frustrating

We arrived before 10.30 at La Louvre, dying to find how to download our tickets. We finally got through to the ticket office to find we had a five minute walk to the location. We then had to queue to enter La Louvre as no one was interested in our priority tickets. I could have paid a lot less and received the same service ...very disappointing
