If it’s your first trip to Paris, you probably want to visit the Louvre. The huge art museum is one of the largest in the world, and one of Paris’s most popular attractions, with almost 3 million visitors in 2020. Everyone looks for the Mona Lisa, but there is so much more to see, including extensive Islamic, Greek and Roman collections as well as thousands of paintings from the 13th to the 19th centuries. It’s impossible to see it all in one visit, and deciding ahead of time what to see is a good strategy. It also pays to arrive there early and when Covid isn’t an issue, book tickets ahead of time. Using an audio guide gives you an insight into the paintings and sculpture you are looking at, and several companies offer tours led by art experts and historians.
