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.

The problem was, that we were not clearly alerted to the fact that the tickets to the Louvre have to be picked up in the office outside the museum. The email sent to me had a link which didn't work, and we wasted at least an hour (and peace of mind on top of it) until we managed to get to the bottom of the problem and get the tickets send to my phone.

Tickets needed to be picked up and not at the Louvre. Tickets were for 1 & 1/2 hours later then the confirmed reservation. You still stand in the same line as everyone else with Tickets. Audio tour is a joke...doesn't explain the works of art. You need to rentbthe audio guide inside le Louvre to do that.

Lousy louvre tickets service

I paid for louvre tickets online. When we went to the office to retrieve the tickets it was closed in the middle of a week day. This was horrible! We never were able to pick up our Louvre tickets which we had already paid for. We had to buy new ones ! We will never use this service again!

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.
