The Louvre (2010-12-07)
We arrived just before 3pm and the security line was short.
Then we went underground and the ticket line was a breeze to queue, a
total of 2 minutes. When we asked the ticket lady how late it was
opened, she said till 10pm. Plenty of time, goodo!
Suddenly at 515pm, there's an announcement saying the museum would
close in 30 minutes! Well well, if you can't trust the staff that
sells you tickets to the museum, who do you trust? Certainly not the
guide book (which we neglected to check the listed opening hours) that
says it's opened till 6pm (still off, but not way off).
Anyway, we could've stayed a bit longer although our legs were dead
tired by then (from days of non-stop walking). I think three
hours is a pretty good time to spend in the Louvre, you can pretty much
cover the most famous pieces within that time frame.
Please refer to my theory on choosing which exhibits to take photos
of in the British Museum post, otherwise enjoy the tour with us!
P.S. There are five must-see exhibits, do you know them all?
