Next, try not to get lost in the Louvre. Seriously though, it’s huge! To skip all of the lines get your tickets online and arrive at least 30 mins before your ticket time. Plan what you’d like to see ahead of time by looking online at the Louvre. If you don’t do that the Louvre will take all day to finish exploring. I suggest booking your tickets for 4 p.m. The Louvre closes at 6 so this gives you about 2 hours to explore. Afterwards grab a bit to eat at a local French restaurant in the area. There is a very fancy one located near the Opera House that had the most exquisite French onion soup.
