Skip The Line Louvre

One of the main reasons that people visit Paris without getting to see the Louvre Museum are the seemingly endless queues. With this Skip the Line ticket, you’ll access the gallery without having to wait in the ticket office line.

You can choose between Louvre timed entrance and Louvre skip-the-line tickets. Those are two options for visiting popular attractions. Both options have their own advantages and disadvantages.

Louvre Timed entrance tickets allow you to enter the Louvre at a specific time. This can be helpful if you want to avoid waiting in long lines. However, you may have to be more flexible with your schedule if you choose this option.

Louvre Skip-the-line tickets allow you to enter the Louvre without waiting in line. This is a great option if you are short on time or if you simply want to avoid the hassle of waiting in line. However, Louvre skip-the-line tickets can be more expensive than Louvre timed entrance tickets.

General Information Louvre

The Louvre is one of Paris’ most visited attractions in the center of Paris, welcoming approximately 9.3 million visitors per year. The reason for its popularity is first of all its broad collection of priceless masterpieces and antiques. It therefore offers the most extensive art galleries for its breadth of subjects, which range from 6th century BC to 19th century. The scale of this museum can be overwhelming (the south side facing the Seine is 700m long). Therefore downloading self-guided tours from the website or picking up a €5 multimedia guide, will help you navigate this huge labyrinth of artistic treasures more easily.
