This was the first attraction we properly visited while in Paris and we arrived twenty minutes before opening, just as the sun had risen. There was a short queue to get in, but it was otherwise quiet. The museum s massive and split into different section, of which we only managed two due to the sheer size. We started with the Mona Lisa, which we arrived to see before the crowds swelled to a huge size. Admittedly we were little taken aback by the small size of the painting being hung on such a huge wall in a huge room. The rest of the museum was stunning, such a variety of amazing artwork. We were thoroughly impressed by Napoleon's apartments, especially as they had been kept in such great conditions and that the decor was so grand and over the top. It was this section of the museum that really made the trip worth it. We spent around two hours in there and did not even get to see everything but it was worth the cost. Best tip I can give though would to arrive for opening as the museum is much quieter at this time. By the time we got out, a huge queue had formed to get into the museum. Also do not try to do everything in one visit. There is a lot to see and take in and it also gets very warm inside.
