Visit to the Louvre: the most optimal time to explore the gallery in Paris and how to avoid crowds
A travel reporter visited one of the most famous galleries in the world in Paris, the Louvre, but there were too many people to enjoy the works of art. The traveler advised against planning your visit during the peak season if you want to see something on the walls and not be crowded.
Among all the other attractions, the Louvre Gallery in Paris, not counting the Eiffel Tower, is probably the most recognizable symbol of France, as Express writes. Every day, it is visited by thousands of foreigners who want to see not only the Mona Lisa but also other exhibits with their own eyes.
The queue to see Leonardo da Vinci's painting was so long that the tourist did not enjoy it. Plus, a hot August day and a large number of visitors made the visit quite unpleasant for the author of the article.
The travel reporter does not recommend visiting the Louvre in August, at the height of the holiday season. Tourists were advised to book a trip in January or February, when there are fewer tourists in Paris.
The Mona Lisa is undoubtedly one of the most interesting paintings in the gallery, but the Louvre has four floors with other exhibits worth seeing. To avoid queues, visitors are advised to explore the halls with lesser-known works of art.
Booking tickets online in advance can also be helpful, as it allows you to avoid long lines at the gallery entrance.
