Visiting the Louvre museum in summer is quite an experience… which could easily be transformed into your worst nightmare. 8 millions people are visiting the museum per year, which means more than 25 000 persons per day in average. And most of them are only looking for Mona Lisa. So they rush into with only one idea in mind, rubbing shoulders for making selfies…

You can avoid inconvenience by carefully choosing your day and hour… Notice that the museum is closed each Tuesday. Therefore people are taking this opportunity to visit Versailles Palace… and they rush into the museum on Monday and Wednesday. So the other days of the week are preferable.

Anyway, you would better go to the museum at the opening or at night. If you are at the Carrousel entrance 15 minutes before 9:00 am, you will enter among the first visitors… And you will see Mona Lisa on front row! On Wednesday and Friday, the museum is proposing nocturnal opening hours, until 9:30 pm. So entering at 6:30 or 7:00 pm on one of these days is surely a smart, wise decision. There are less people inside and your experience will be far much better. And with a private guide, your visit will be unforgettable.
