Today we woke up late,
around 10 o’clock in the morning because we’re so tired from last night’s trip
to the Eiffel Tower. We were worried
that the line at the Louvre might already be unbearable so we did our best to
get there as soon as possible. We took
the bus to the museum since a bus stop is just a few minutes from our hotel. We got off at Louvre-Rivoli stop and walked our way to the main entrance. We were surprised in what we saw, no queues! Louvre is the most visited attraction in
Paris so we expected lines like those of the Eiffel Tower. I’ve read so many travel sites warning about
its ridiculous lines that they even gave tips on which entrance has the shortest
lines. Maybe we’re just lucky.

5. We paid for an audio guide for €5/ person. It is a Nintendo 3d SD with commentaries and map of the museum. It can be useful but I wouldn’t suggest it. Its batteries ran out after 1.5 hours contrary to the 3 hours they claimed. After the battery runs out, you’ll have to return the gadget and have it replaced with a newly charged one near the main lobby wasting time and energy.
